In my article Windows 10 V1903 Updates (July 17, 2019) I collected some information about the preview versions of this update in advance.

Updates for Windows Version 1903

The following updates have been released for Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903) and Windows Server 2019.

Update KB4505903 for Windows Version 1903

Cumulative update KB4505903 for Windows version 1903 increases the build number to 18362.267. The update contains quality improvements, but no new operating system functions. Here is the list of highlights:

Among other things, the brightness control of the display was fixed when waking up from sleep mode. The Remote Access Connection Manager (RASMAN) service error 0xc0000005 was also addressed. What I didn’t read was the fix for Sandbox error 0xc0370106 (see Windows 10 V1903: Sandbox fails with error 0xc0370106 that has been mentioned in Windows 10 V1903 Update KB4505903 (for Insider, 07/23/2019)). 

In addition, Microsoft has released an update directly for the Windows Update Client to improve its reliability. This will be rolled out outside of Windows Update if the machine is compatible and not a LTSC variant and updates have not been blocked by GPO..

The update is delivered (currently in the Release Channel) via Windows Update, if the user explicitly requests the search for updates in the settings page. The update can also be downloaded and installed from the Microsoft Update Catalog. It should now also be available in WSUS. However, you should make sure that the latest Servicing Stack Update (SSU) KB4508433 is installed. Microsoft lists a whole range of known isses with this update. Besides the sandbox error 0x80070002 there are PXE boot errors (see also June Update KB4503276 blocks PXE boot on SCCM DPs) and the MIT Kerberos realm boot problem for domains (see Windows 10 V1903: Upgrade blocker Intel RST & MIT Kerberos).

Servicing Stack Update KB4508433 for Windows Version 1903

For Windows version 1903 Microsoft has also released a Servicing Stack Update (SSU) KB4508433. This update introduces the following improvements and fixes:

  • Addresses an issue in which an update may not install with certain other updates and upon start up after installation of the other updates, will require a second scan of Windows Update and a second restart to complete installation.
  • Addresses an issue in which reserved disk space may not be returned to free space when installation of Language Packs or Features on Demand (FODs) fails or is canceled.  The disk space is returned to free space when Storage Sense is run.
  • Addresses an issue when Windows Update Check for updates is run during the installation or uninstallation of an update, Features on Demand (FODs) or Language packs, which may cause the installation to fail and may cause a restart to take up to an hour.

The update is rolled out via Windows Update, but can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

      Thx, I’ve notized that at midnight (central european time) – but it’s even more strange: I receive reports from German readers, that this update arrives in WSUS.

      And even more strange: I just blogged about the accidentially released canary build of Windows 10 20H1 to all Windows Insider rings. A blog reader reported, that he got 20H1 in June 2019 via Media Creation Tool (he downloaded it in Dallas to a USB stick and was puzzled to see a ‘new start menu, that was distinct to the ordinary Win 10 start menu’, after he installed the image. Then he received an update, and the machine went to the old GUI.

      Seems it’s hot in Redmont during summer – every body is in vacation – only one poor internal was left locked in the server room ;-).
