Microsoft releases Windows 10 build 16299.125, 15063.786 - here's what's new

Today is the second Tuesday of the month, or as Microsoft enthusiasts know it, Patch Tuesday. That means that it's time for Microsoft to release new cumulative updates for all versions of Windows 10. As usual, none of these updates contain any new front-facing features, and instead focus on fixes and improvements.

If you're on Windows 10 version 1709, or the Fall Creators Update, PCs will receive KB4054517, or build 16299.125. You can manually download it here. Here's what's been fixed:

  • Updates Internet Explorer’s default visibility for the button that launches Microsoft Edge.

  • Addresses issue where Windows Defender Device Guard and Application Control block some applications from running, even in Audit-Only Enforcement Mode.

  • Addresses issue to reset PLC bit on U0/U3 transitions.

  • Addresses issue with personalized Bluetooth devices that don't support bonding.

  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard doesn’t support the standard layout for 88 languages.

  • Addresses issue where the touch keyboard for a third-party Input Method Editor (IME) has no IME ON/OFF key.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses issue where, when using System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), the user can't copy or clone virtual machines (VM). The error message is "0x80070057- Invalid parameter". This issue affects the VMM UI and PowerShell scripts used for VM cloning and copying.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

As you can see, it's not the biggest list of changes this month, but the good news is that there are no known issues.

According to the Windows 10 Update History, Windows phones on version 1709 should get build 15254.124, although the changelog isn't available. Presumably, it just has minor fixes.

PCs and phones on version 1703, or the Creators Update, will see KB4053580, or 15063.786. You can manually grab it here, and here's what changed:

  • Updates Internet Explorer’s default visibility for the button that launches Microsoft Edge.

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses issue that caused Windows Pro devices on the Current Branch for Business (CBB) to upgrade unexpectedly.

  • Addresses issue where applications may stop responding for customers who have internet or web proxies enabled using PAC script configurations. This is a result of a reentrancy deadlock in WinHTTP.dll. This can result in the following:

    • Microsoft Outlook can't connect to Microsoft Office365.

    • Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge can't render any content (including local computer content, local network content, or web content).

    • Cisco Jabber stops responding, which blocks messaging and telephony features.

  • Any application or service that relies on WinHTTP is affected.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

Again, there are no known issues in KB4053580, or any of the other updates, for that matter.

KB4053579, or build 14393.1944, is also available for PCs and phones, and that's for those on version 1607, or the Anniversary Update. You can manually grab it here. Here's what got fixed:

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses issue where, after you install KB4041688, KB4052231, or KB4048953, the error "CDPUserSvc_XXXX has stopped working" appears. Additionally, this resolves the logging of Event ID 1000 in the Application event log. It notes that svchost.exe_CDPUserSvc_XXXX stopped working and the faulting module name is "cdp.dll".

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine and Microsoft Edge.

For those on version 1511, KB4053578, or build 10586.1295, is PC-only. You can manually download it here, and here's what changed:

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses issue that affected some Epson SIDM (Dot Matrix) and TM (POS) printers, which were failing to print on x86-based and x64-based systems. This issue affects KB4048952.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

Finally, those on the original version of Windows 10 will get KB4053581, or build 10240.17709, and that can be manually downloaded here. Here's what's new:

  • Addresses issue where users of SQL Server Reporting Services may not be able to use the scrollbar in a drop-down list.

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.

  • Addresses issue that affected some Epson SIDM (Dot Matrix) and TM (POS) printers, which were failing to print on x86-based and x64-based systems. This issue affects KB4048956.

  • Security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, and Windows Server.

Unlike with previous months, none of these updates contain a huge laundry list of features. Of course, this is also the first month in a long time where there are no known issues.

Of course, you don't need to use any of the manual download links to get today's update. Users can head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates, and your device will download the version that corresponds to the version that you're using.
