Microsoft releases Windows 10 builds 16299.1182, 15063.1839 - here's what's new

With six actively supported versions of Windows 10, we're starting to see cumulative updates pop up more and more frequently throughout the month, and it's just going to get more common. Today's updates are for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Creators Update, also known as versions 1709 and 1703, respectively.

These are not Patch Tuesday updates, so they're optional. You can get them through Windows Update, but they won't install automatically.

Also, both versions are not supported for Home and Pro SKUs of the OS. You'll only get these updates if you're on Windows 10 Enterprise or Education.

If you're on the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, or version 1709, you'll get KB4499147, which brings the build number to 16299.1182. You can manually download it here, and it contains the following fixes:

  • Addresses an issue with looping redirects between Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

  • Updates wininet.dll to prevent the re-creation of File Transfer Protocol (FTP) control sessions.

  • Addresses an issue that prevents the OS from loading new icon files if it encounters an icon file that has a bad format.

  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.

  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.

  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.

  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.

  • Addresses an issue that may cause a temporary KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure in applications and services configured to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). This issue occurs after the automatic update of the service account password.

  • Addresses an issue that causes a sign-in to fail with the error, “Incorrect Username or password” when using an empty or null password and Windows Defender Credential Guard is enabled.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Microsoft Office and other applications to prompt for a password after you change a user account password. This issue occurs on hybrid Azure Active Directory (AD) joined systems.

  • Addresses an issue with BranchCache when it is in distributed cache mode. BranchCache may use more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. To fully address the issue, devices that have exceeded the disk space assignments should empty BranchCache using the netsh branchcache flushcommand.

  • Addresses an issue that may cause a Stop D1 error when you increase the random-access memory (RAM) capacity of a CPU (“hot add”) on a virtual machine.

  • Addresses an issue that may cause event 7600 in the Domain Name System (DNS) server event log to contain an unreadable server name.

  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Edge that displays an error page when you go to a page that was previously posted.

  • Addresses an issue with scrollLeft in Internet Explorer.

  • Addresses an issue that causes rendering to stop working for svg elements.

There's also one known issue, which is the same with both updates:

Symptom Workaround
Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

Do one of the following:

  • Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.
  • Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.

  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.

  • Improves performance related to case-insensitive string comparison functions such as _stricmp() in the Universal C Runtime.

  • Addresses an issue in which Windows attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates when there is no internet connectivity. This issue occurs during AAD authentication and slows the performance of applications.
