A list of the updates can be found on this Microsoft Web page. I’ve pulled out the details below. The update installation requires an existing current Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs). Microsoft now publishes an overview of current Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs) under ADV990001.

Updates for Windows 10 Version 1809

The following updates are available for Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Version 1809).

Update KB4489899 for Windows 10 Version 1809

Cumulative update KB4489899 raises the OS build to 17763.379 and includes quality improvements but no new operating system features. Here is the list of fixes:

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft HoloLens with tracking and device calibration that has affected some users. You may notice improvement 10-15 minutes after installing this update, but we recommend resetting the holograms for best results.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause users to receive “Error 1309” while installing or uninstalling certain types of MSI and MSP files.
  • Addresses an issue that may degrade graphics and mouse performance with desktop gaming when playing certain games, such as Destiny 2, after installing KB4482887.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Shell, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers, Windows Server, Windows Linux, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, the Microsoft JET

The update is automatically distributed via Windows Update, no update search is required. The update can also be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Manual installation of the update requires that Servicing Stack Update (SSU) is installed. This is ensured when installing via Windows Update.

Known issues with this update

As a known issue, Microsoft mentions that after installing the update, Internet Explorer 11 causes authentication problems. This occurs when two or more people use the same user account for multiple simultaneous logon sessions on the same Windows Server computer, including Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Terminal Server logons. Symptoms reported by customers include, but are not limited to:

  • Cache size and location show zero or empty.
  • Keyboard shortcuts may not work properly.
  • Webpages may intermittently fail to load or render correctly.
  • Issues with credential prompts.
  • Issues when downloading files.

Create unique user accounts so that two people do not share the same user account when they log on to a Windows Server computer. Also, disable multiple RDP sessions for a single user account for a specific Windows Server. Microsoft is working on a solution and will release an update in a future release.

After you install this update on machines with multiple audio devices, applications that provide advanced options for internal or external audio output devices may no longer work. This problem occurs with users who select an audio output device other than the “default audio device. Examples of applications that can no longer work are:

  • Windows Media Player
  • Realtek HD Audio Manager
  • Sound Blaster Control Panel

As a temporary solution, select the “Default Audio Device” in the options provided by the application. Microsoft is working on a solution and estimates that a solution will be available by the end of March 2019.

After installing this update, MSXML6 causes applications to stop responding if an exception such as appendChild(), insertBefore(), and moveNode() is raised during node operations.

he Group Policy Editor can also be affected when editing a Group Policy object (GPO) that contains a Group Policy preference for Internet settings. Microsoft is working on a solution and will provide a solution with upcoming updates.
