[German]After a longer test phase with Windows insiders, Microsoft released the cumulative update KB4469342 for Windows 10 Version 1809 on December 5, 2018. This fixes many bugs in this Windows 10 build.


Within this German comment (thanks) a user pointed out that Microsoft released the update KB4469342 for Windows 10 Version 1809 on December 5, 2018.

Update KB4469342 für Windows 10 Version 1809

I had a test machine search for the update, and it was offered via Windows Update in the settings app (see picture above).

Note: Microsoft rolls out a preview of a cumulative update for the .NET Framework (KB4469041). The announcement can be found in at Technet.

Update KB4469342, that's fixed

The cumulative update KB4469342 raises OS build to Build 17763.168 and fixes the following bugs in Windows 10 version 1809:

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft Edge with using the drag-and-drop feature to upload folders from the Windows desktop to a file hosting service website, such as Microsoft OneDrive. In some scenarios, files contained in the folders fail to upload, with possibly no error reported on the web page to the user.
  • Addresses an issue that degrades Internet Explorer performance when you use roaming profiles or you don't use the Microsoft Compatibility List.
  • Addresses updated time zone information for Fiji.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Moroccan daylight standard time.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Russian daylight standard time.
  • Addresses an issue that causes display settings to stop working when changing a multi-monitor configuration.
  • Addresses an issue that displays a black screen on some servers when waking a display from sleep.
  • Addresses an issue with long delays in taking a photo when using the Camera app in certain lighting conditions.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents live TV Hulu content from playing in Microsoft Edge; instead, a black screen appears.
  • Addresses an issue that stops Bluetooth® headsets from receiving audio input after several minutes of listening.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Brightness slider preference to be reset to 50% when the device restarts.
  • Addresses an issue with the OEM manufacturing processes when running sysprep /generalize.
  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Intune that causes devices to be incorrectly marked as not compliant because a firewall incorrectly returns a 'Poor' status. As a result, the affected devices will not receive conditional access compliance approval and may be blocked from access to corporate resources such as email.
  • Addresses a performance issue with vSwitch on network interface cards (NIC) that do not support Large Send Offload (LSO) and Checksum Offload (CSO).
  • Updates the Wi-Fi policy for service set identifier (SSID) filtering to avoid filtering out Wi-Fi Direct devices.
  • Addresses an issue that causes rasman.exe to stop responding.
  • Addresses an issue in which regedit.exe fails to add double null terminator to REG_MULTI_SZ values in the Windows registry. The missing terminator may prevent services and applications from reading REG_MULTI_SZ values that regedit.exe adds after installing the operating system.
  • Addresses an issue with RemoteApp visibility that may cause the main window to disappear until the user clicks the screen.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents some users from setting Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with… command or Settings > Apps > Default apps.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause mapped drives to fail to reconnect after starting and logging onto a Windows device.

From the above list, I would like to highlight the fixes for the file type assignment bug and the network run connection problem. Beside the official bug fix list, the 'hanging Explorer' issue and also the Jump List bug seems also fixed


Update KB4469342 is available via Windows Update. But you have to start the update search in the settings page. The package can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog and installed manually.

Servicing Stack Update KB4470788 required

For installation it is necessary that the Servicing Stack Update (SSU KB4470788) is already installed. If Update KB4469342 is installed via Windows Update, a missing SSU will be installed automatically.

Known issues

Microsoft says that with this update the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player is broken. A fix is planned until mid-December 2018 (see Windows 10 V1607: Update KB4478877, WMP fix is coming). Furthermore, the bug in Edge mentioned in the blog post Windows 10 V1809: NVidia hibernation issue & Edge bug is still listed as a known problem. This issue should be fixed with the nVidia hotfix update of the graphics driver mentioned in the blog post.

Update KB4469342 für Windows 10 Version 1809

Something funny on the side: The update threw an error 0x8024200d, as it is described in the blog post Windows Update Error 0x8024200D. This is probably a download issue, but was corrected by the update client automatically. Afterwards the update has been downloaded and installed. This installation process even ran surprisingly smoothly.

Addendum: Some slight issues has been reported. One user wrote, that there is no mor Windows Hello login. This could be a privacy setting for Camera app in Settings page. Another user left a comment within my German blog, that the network adapter has been set to 'public' on 3 machines – so no more RDP connections was possible.

  1. Fritz Haber says:

    This update contains a kill-switch for outdated versions of CCleaner

    The error will look like this:

    I posted an English picture I found on the net, but it looks the same in German. Seems like an old practice.

    Anyone knows a way how I can run old software? I don't like the new CCleaner, too much telemetry against my will.

    • guenni says:

      Have you tried the compatibility mode für CCleaner (see here)?

      • Fritz Haber says:

        It is not a compatibility issue. CCleaner runs again once I remove the much needed update KB4469342.

        For now I let MicroSoft and Avast (now owners of CCleaner) win, but I blocked CCleaner fully in my firewalls. As it happily tries to send data off my PC and fails.

        It's a shame they use kill-switches to "coerce" users into installing versions that collect data of the user.

        And that guide does not work. Thanks for trying to help, friend!

    Version 1809 of Windows 10 has errors in Notepad keyboard shortcuts in languages other than English. Some custom keyboard shortcuts for the language appear in the menus, but the only ones that work are English.
    For example, to search in Spanish use CTRL + B (it appears in the menus of Notepad) and then pressing the keys does nothing. In contrast, CTRL + F does work. There is a transfer error of the keyboard shortcuts of the particular language and only the English ones work.
