Windows 10 build 15063.250 for PCs is now available - here's what's new

While Microsoft had announced that the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update was coming today, things haven't turned out that way so far. And while it was actually offered to the Release Preview ring, the company also quietly rolled out an update for Windows 10 PCs, build 15063.250.

This one is available to everyone, rather than just Insiders. Here's the full range of fixes listed in the changelog:

  • Addressed issue where VMs might experience loss in network connectivity while provisioning IP addresses.

  • Addressed issue that does not initiate a remote ring on the device when RemoteRing Configuration Service Provider (CSP) is used.

  • Addressed issue where a memory leak occurs in Internet Explorer when hosting pages containing nested framesets that load cross-domain content.

  • Addressed issue where Internet Explorer 11 does not save JavaScript files when exporting to an MHT file.

  • Addressed issue that causes users to get logged out from Web applications intermittently.

  • Addressed issue with a very dim internal monitor that may occur when booting with the external monitor only and then switching to the built-in panel only.

  • Addressed issue where running Win32 Direct3D applications or games in full-screen exclusive mode causes the system to become unresponsive when resuming from Connected Standby.

  • Addressed issue where when upgrading to Windows 10, version 1703, with the system language set to Chinese, the progress page displays geometric shapes instead of the correct localized strings.

  • Addressed issue that prevents the lock screen from being disabled using Group Policy on Professional SKUs.

  • Addressed issue in Windows Forms configuration options, which causes antivirus applications to stop working at startup.

  • Addressed additional issues with compatibility, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge.

According to the Windows 10 Update History site, there are no known issues for this cumulative update.

Interestingly, the changelog only lists build 15063.250, and it doesn't show the Mobile build that was offered to the Release Preview ring, which is 15063.251. This seems to imply that .251 isn't meant to hit the Production ring today at all. As far as that goes, Microsoft isn't saying anything, but we'll likely find out more as the day goes on.

This is the third cumulative update for the Creators Update, and it's at a mid-point between this month's Patch Tuesday and next month's. There are no updates for versions 1507 (which is slated to lose support after May 9), 1511, or 1607. More frequent updates are somewhat normal for a new Windows version.
