KB5005102 Windows 10 1809 Changelog
Here are the key changes that will occur after upgrading to OS Build 17763.2145 –
- This update fixes a bug that prevented users from tracking the activation failures of the Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM).
- Fixes a problem that prevents the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider host process from functioning. The reason for this is that the Desired State Configuration (DSC) failed to handle a user access violation.
- Resolves an issue where you are unable to write to a WMI repository when there is a memory issue.
- Solved the problem of minimizing an application with unthemed windows being blocked from being minimized.
- Provides a fix for a problem that makes authentication mechanism assurance (AMA) stop working. You may encounter this problem when installing Windows Server 2016 (or newer versions of Windows) or when using Windows Hello for Business certificates with AMA.
- The update resolves an issue where Code Integrity rules fail to work correctly when specifying Package Family Name rules in a Code Integrity policy. This problem occurs because the case-sensitive characters are handled incorrectly.
- Solved an issue preventing the ShellHWDetection service from starting on a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) device. It also prevents you from managing BitLocker drive encryption.
Some other fixes and improvements
- This release fixes a problem with Windows Defender Exploit Protection that prevented some Microsoft Office applications from working on certain processors.
- It fixed a problem when the system language was Hebrew that prevented the slider control from working properly. There is no information about the file size or other details.
- The patch resolves an issue that can occur when configuring the policy, “Delete user profiles older than a specified number of days on system restart”. If a device has been logged in for longer than a specified period of time, it may delete profiles unexpectedly at startup.
- As part of the fix, Microsoft will try to fix the “Always keep on this device” option in Microsoft OneDrive. Upon installing the latest software update, the setting is unexpectedly changed to “Known folders only.”.
- Resolves the occurrence of a race condition that might slow down I/O until a timeout occurs in the server message block (SMB) client.
