  • Resolves an issue with Windows Movies and TV app that prevents it from playing .mp4 media files containing Pixel Aspect Ration (PAR) information.
  • Works upon an anomaly that resets syncing for Microsoft OneDrive to “Known folders only”. This problem occurs only when you update your Windows PC to a new Build update.

  • Users may now easily track Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) activation failures.
  • Applications using unthemed windows don’t minimize before because of an internal issue. Microsoft resolves this issue with this optional update.
  • Earlier, there occurs a threading issue that stops the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service from working whenever it is under a high load.
  • Fixes a bug that prevents Secure Launch from working on some devices.
  • Input Method Editor (IME) toolbar will no longer appear when the Remote app stays closed.
  • Resolves BSOD Error 0x0000001E in srv2!Smb2CheckAndInvalidateCCFFile.
  • Fixes running queries against OneSettings APIs from the obsolete Storage Health feature.

  • Resolves Windows Defender Exploit Protection issue that stops certain Microsoft Office applications from working on machines having low-end processors.

Other Fixes and Improvements

In addition to the above fixes, KB5005103 brings the following changes as well –

  • Resolves an issue with a critical exception that the Open File dialog fails to handle. As a result, a Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) application unexpectedly closes.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause a system to stop working after a deduplication filter detects damage in a reparse point. This issue occurs because of deduplication driver changes introduced in a previous update.

  • Addresses an issue with the Microsoft OneDrive sync setting "Always keep on this device". The setting is unexpectedly reset to "Known folders only" after you install a Windows update.

  • Works upon an issue that causes the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider host process to stop working. This occurs because of an unhandled access violation that occurs when using the Desired State Configuration (DSC).

  • Addresses an issue that causes file migration between Distributed File System (DFS) paths that are stored on different volumes to fail. This issue occurs when you implement the migration using PowerShell scripts that use the Move-Item command.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Authentication Mechanism Assurance (AMA) to stop working. This issue occurs when you migrate to Windows Server 2016 (or newer versions of Windows) and when using AMA in conjunction with certificates from Windows Hello for Business.

  • Fixes an issue that prevents Code Integrity rules from working correctly when specifying Package Family Name rules in a Code Integrity policy. This issue occurs because of the incorrect handling of case-sensitive names.

  • Addresses an issue that prevents the ShellHWDetection service from starting on a Privileged Access Workstation (PAW) device and prevents you from managing BitLocker drive encryption.

  • Addresses an issue that might occur when you configure the policy, "Delete user profiles older than a specified number of days on system restart". If a user has been signed in for longer than the time specified in the policy, the device might unexpectedly delete profiles at startup.
