Microsoft releases Windows 10 builds 15063.540 and 14393.1593 - here's what's new

Even though it's only been a week since Microsoft released a cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1703, it's Patch Tuesday, which means that there are more incoming, for all supported versions of the OS. As always, there are no new front-facing features included; instead, cumulative updates focus on fixes.

First up is build 15063.540, which is available for users with the Creators Update installed on their PCs and phones. You can install it manually here. Here's what's new:

  • Addressed issue where the policies provisioned using Mobile Device Management (MDM) should take precedence over policies set by provisioning packages.

  • Addressed issue where the Site to Zone Assignment List group policy (GPO) was not set on machines when it was enabled.

  • Addressed issue where the AppLocker rules wizard crashes when selecting accounts.

  • Addressed issue where the primary computer relationship is not determined when you have a disjoint NetBIOS domain name for your DNS Name. This prevents folder redirection and roaming profiles from successfully blocking your profile or redirects folders to a non-primary computer.

  • Addressed issue where an access violation in the Mobile Device Manager Enterprise feature causes stop errors.

  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Server, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows shell, Common Log File System Driver, Internet Explorer, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

Obviously, there aren't a lot of fixes for version 1703, as it received an update just a week ago. There is one known issue to be aware of though:

Next is build 14393.1593, which is also for both PCs and phones. You can download it manually here. Here's what got fixed:

  • Addressed issue where apps sometimes launch with a border when a device is in Tablet mode.

  • Addressed issue introduced in the June updates where some applications may not launch when a device resumes from Connected Standby mode.

  • Security updates to Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Common Log File System Driver, Windows Server, Windows Hyper-V, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

For those that are still on version 1511, you'll see 10586.1045, and that's for PCs only. You can grab it from the Update Catalog here.

  • Addressed issue where, when deploying an application to a device that is managed by AppLocker, the application deployment fails.

  • Addressed issue introduced in the June updates where some applications may not launch when a device resumes from Connected Standby mode.

  • Security updates to Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Server, Common Log File System Driver, Windows Hyper-V, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

Finally, even users of the original version of Windows 10, 1507, get a cumulative update in build 10240.17533, which can be found here. Here's what's new:

  • Addressed issue where some of the event data for user logon events (ID 4624) from Domain controllers were corrupted.

  • Addressed issue introduced in the June updates where some applications may not launch when a device resumes from Connected Standby mode.

  • Security updates to Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows Server, Common Log File System Driver, Windows Hyper-V, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

Obviously, the list of changes isn't too large for any of these updates, which is likely due to the fact that Microsoft seems to be pushing these builds more frequently than it used to.

As always, you can get your corresponding cumulative update by heading to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates, or you can install them manually.
