Extra Windows 10 CU for This Month Rolling Out Now (KB4015438)

Microsoft is rolling out a second cumulative update for Windows 10 today –  just a week after the first. This one is intended to fix some bugs and issues that were introduced by the first one.

KB4015438 is available now through Windows Update and here’s what it fixes:

  • Addressed a known issue with KB4013429 that caused Windows DVD Player (and 3rd party apps that use Microsoft MPEG-2 handling libraries) to crash.
  • Addressed a known issue with KB4013429, that some customers using Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 1607 Client with Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) enabled might experience a deadlock or when changing the physical adapter’s link speed property. This issue is most commonly seen as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION or when verifier is enabled a VRF_STACKPTR_ERROR is seen in the Memory dump.

Of course, this latest KB article says that there are no known issues in this update – but, considering Microsoft missed issues in the first update, don’t hold your breath.

Since this is a cumulative update, if you have not rolled out last week’s CU yet, you can skip to this latest offering and capture all the fixes up to this point.
