Update KB3150513: May Re-re-release for Windows 10 V1607

[German]Microsoft has released Update KB3150513 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update multiple times in May 2017. The latest re-release has been scheduled on May 11, 2017.


Update KB3150513 will be released (nearly) each month and is available for Windows 7 up to Windows. Microsoft chooses, which Windows version is receiving this update on each release date. In most cases I mentioned a new version within my blog. This time, update KB3150513 is for Windows 10 Version 1607.

What is update KB3150513 for?

Update KB3150513 transports the ‘Latest compatibility definition update for Windows’. According to Microsoft, it provides the latest set of definitions for compatibility diagnostics that are performed on the system. The updated definitions help enable Microsoft and its partners to ensure compatibility for all customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system. Installing this update also makes sure that the latest Windows operating system version is correctly offered through Windows Update, based on compatibility results.

This update may not be offered concurrently to all platforms. It will be available only to platforms for which there are new definitions available. In Windows 10 users will see it frequently within the rollout wave of a new feature update. Microsoft has re-released Update KB3150513 on May 1, May 5, and then May 11, 2017.

What’s changing?

Each update ships new versions of the files Appraiser.sdb, Appraiser_data.ini and Appraiser_telemetryrunlist.xml. This enables Microsoft to gain detailed compatibility data on distinct systems. The fact that Microsoft has re-released this update multiple times in May 2017, indicates to me, that they detected upgrade issues from Windows 10 Version 1607 to Windows 10 Creators Update. If you are in need, and the machine did not receive the package via Windows Update, download it from Microsoft Update Catalog and install the package manually.
