Build 19042.789 Changelog

If you want to know about the previous improvements, features, or changes, have a look at Windows 10 20H2 Build 19042.782.

The new fixes are as follows –

  1. They resolved a bug associated with Microsoft Exchange accounts and some Surface Hub devices that originally appears after switching to Windows 10 version 20H2. Users reported receiving an error message that reads – “Something went wrong” appears, and the error code is 0x80131500“.
  2. Earlier, users were not able to get Windows updates while using an authenticated proxy. They use such proxies as a fallback for the sync service after the previous attempts of setting proxy fail.
  3. Windows 10 1703 users were not able to upgrade their operating systems to Windows 10 version 20H2. This problem was more specific to users on a Surface Hub device receiving an error message that says “Getting ready…”, and this message persists indefinitely.
