KB4499162 updates Windows 10 1703 to Build 15063.1839

KB4499162 comes for Windows 10 version 1709 and augments the Build to 15063.1839. This patch update attempts to solve several issues like – Kerberos sign-in, stricmp() on Universal C Runtime, BranchCache and others. Besides this, it also includes a series of fixes that make your current OS a bit more smooth and powerful.

Here, we elucidate the general improvements and changes that appear on the KB4499162 cumulative update. Moreover, there is one pending issue on this build as well – Error 0xC00000A5. Though Microsoft experts have provided a temporary solution to this bug; they promised to bring a permanent solution in the upcoming release.


General Changes and Improvements

Let’s have a look at the key changes and improvements that came along with this cumulative update-

  1. Resolves the redirect loop issue between Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
  2. Updates wininet.dll bug which in turn prevents re-creating File Transfer Protocol control sessions.
  3. Addresses the date separator issue on Japanese short date format.
  4. Updates the time zone information for Morocco and the Palestinian Authority.
  5. Works upon a bug that attempts to renew Azure Active Directory (AAD) token certificates even if there is no network connection available. You may face this trouble during AAD authentication that slows down the overall efficiency of applications.
  6. Improves functions like _stricmp() on Universal C Runtime and its performance as well.
  7. Resolves an issue that leads to KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED Kerberos sign-in failure temporarily; when one tries to configure apps which are assigned to use a Group Managed Service Account (GMSA). Loss of service account credentials during an automatic update might be the possible culprit.
  8. Improves a bug that earlier causes a logon to fail and display error, “Incorrect Username or password”. This happens when you put an empty or null password and Windows Defender Guard is set as enabled.
  9. Restores the ScrollLeft functionality on Internet Explorer with this patch update.
  10. Works upon a bug in which <svg> elements services stop working suddenly.
  11. Addresses a bug that asks for a password once you update your credentials on Microsoft Office or other apps adjoined to hybrid Azure active directory.
  12. Improves an issue that generates Stop D1 error after you increase the RAM of CPU on a virtual machine.
  13. Works upon the BranchCache issue when its distribution activates cache mode. BranchCache, in a few cases, uses more disk space than assigned for the republication cache. To fix this trouble, devices that excel the disk space quota should empty BranchCache using the following command-
    • netsh branchcache flush

KB4499147- Known Issues

Symptom Workaround

After installing the KB4499162 patch-up, certain operations such as- renaming of files may fail and displays below error message.


This issue arises only if you have performed such operations on a Cluster Shared Volume i.e. CSV. This may also occur if one performs these functions on a CSV owner node without having administrative privileges.

To solve this, perform the following-

  • Login as Admin then only execute such operations.
  • Carry out this operation using a node that doesn’t include CSV ownership.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
