[German]Microsoft released a new cumulative update KB4100403 for Windows 10 version 1803 (April update) as of May 23, 2018. The update is also intended to fix problems when using SSDs in conjunction with the NVMe interface.
Update KB4100403 for Windows 10 V1803
Cumulative update KB4100403 for Windows 10 Version 1803 (April Update) changes the OS Build to 17134.81. This update includes quality improvements, but no new operating system features. This release also contains updates for Microsoft HoloLens (OS Build 17134.80) released May 22, 2018. This update addresses the following key changes:
- Addresses an issue in Internet Explorer that might cause communication between web workers to fail in certain asynchronous scenarios with multiple visits to a web page.
- Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information.
- Addresses an issue where closed-caption settings are preserved after upgrade.
- Addresses a reliability issue that may cause Microsoft Edge or other applications to stop responding when you create a new audio endpoint while audio or video playback is starting.
- Addresses an issue that may cause Windows Hello enrollment to fail on certain hardware that has dGPUs.
- Addresses an issue with power regression on systems with NVMe devices from certain vendors.
The colleagues of German site deskmodder.de report here that the red text “Some settings are managed by your organization” shown in settings app, caused by update KB4103721, has been fixed. However, a comment still complains about the display “This option is managed by the Windows Insider program”.
If earlier updates are you installed, only the new fixes in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device. o download and install this update, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and select Check for updates. The update package may be downloaded also from Microsoft Update Catalog.
Known issues with SSDs, now fixed
Microsoft mentions the known problems with SSDs in the KB article. The most serious problem concerns Intel SSDs during the upgrade.
- When attempting to upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series may repeatedly enter a UEFI screen after restart or stop working. This issue is resolved in KB4100403. Microsoft recommends to wait until the update to Windows 10, version 1803, is offered on the device.
Starting May 25th, if you’re an advanced user on an actively serviced version of Windows 10 and would like to install Windows 10 version 1803, you can manually check for updates. On the Settings page, navigate to Update & security > Windows Update > click Check for updates, which will include this resolution.
- After upgrading to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series, or Toshiba BG3 Series SSDs may exhibit lower battery life. This issue should be resolved with KB4100403. Microsoft recommends to wait until the update to Windows 10, version 1803, is offered on the device.
To get Windows 10, version 1803, we encourage you to wait until the update is offered to your device following the June Update Tuesday. If you’re an advanced user on an actively serviced version of Windows 10 and would like to install Windows 10 version 1803, you can manually check for updates. On the Settings page, navigate to Update & security > Windows Update > click Check for updates, which will include this resolution.
The problems with Windows 10 version 1803 on systems with SSDs of other manufacturers reported here in the blog are not addressed by Microsoft in the KB article on update KB4100403.
However, since Microsoft’s list of fixes addresses performance regression on systems with NVMe devices from certain manufacturers, the problem could also be fixed for SSDs from other OEMs. NVM Express (NVMe) is nothing more than a software interface to integrate SSDs (NVM) via PCI Express without manufacturer-specific drivers. If you are affected by the problems, you can leave a comment as to whether something has moved for the better.
Still issues with CredSSP?
The problem with remote desktop connections to servers with the “CredSSP” authentication error is not fixed (according to this comment). The error should have been fixed since the cumulative update KB4103721.
