  • Addresses issue where child accounts are able to access InPrivate mode on ARM devices even though their browsing and search history is sent to their parents.

This applies to Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

  • Corrects mouse delays for devices that incorrectly report the battery level status.
  • Addresses issue where MMC application snap-ins—such as Services, Local Policy Admin, and Printer Management—fail to run when Windows Defender Application Control (Device Guard) is turned on. The error is “Object doesn’t support this property or method”.
  • Prevents use of the Pre-production Onesettings endpoint for Windows Setup when test signing is enabled.
  • Addresses issue where installations of Windows Server, version 1709 are not automatically activated using the Automated Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA) feature on Hyper-V hosts that have been activated.

  • Addresses issue with App-V packages that aren’t compatible with registry virtualization using kernel containers. To address the issue, we changed the registry virtualization to use the earlier (non-container) method by default. Customers who would like to use the new (kernel container) method for registry virtualization can still switch to it by setting the following registry value to 1:
    • Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\AppV\Client\Compatibility
    • Setting: ContainerRegistryEnabled
    • DataType: DWORD
  • Security updates to Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Windows Search component, Windows Kernel, Windows Authentication, Device Guard, Common Log File System driver, and the Windows storage and file systems.
