  • Adds the ability to configure period or dot (.) delimited IP addresses interchangeably with fully qualified hostnames in the following Group Policy settings:
  • Resolves a known issue that prevents devices from downloading and installing printer drivers. This problem occurred only when the devices attempt to connect to a network printer for the first time. As per Microsoft, this problem existed only on those devices that access printers using a print server that uses HTTP connections.

Error Fixes

  • Works upon a regression issue that was causing a stop error 0x38 on some machine configurations using non-ASCII text in the registry.
  • Fixes a race condition that causes a stop error during the early part of the OS startup. 
  • Users may now enable BitLocker on a thinly provisioned virtual machine (VM). Earlier, this was causing an error – “A device attached to the system is not functioning”, and the system logs “STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL”.

  • Fixes an issue with Adamsync.exe that affects the syncing of large Active Directory subtrees.

  • The recording features that were earlier unavailable become available now inside the Xbox Game Bar.

  • No more “Your unsaved work will be lost” message even if you are not logged in with a user account on your PC. 
  • Improves the precision of the estimates for downtime when the estimates are at least two minutes or more.
  • Updates the hardcoded font in the PowerShell shortcut file so that it doesn’t distort while opening it on Japanese, Chinese, or Korean language fonts.

Other Fixes & Enhancements

  • Works upon an issue that prompts for administrative credentials every time you try to print a document. This problem existed only on devices that have different times zones for the print server and the print client.
  • Resolves the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) issue wherein the host process stops working all of a sudden. This occurred due to an unhandled access violation with the Desired State Configuration (DSC).
  • Works upon an issue that causes file migration between Distributed File System (DFS) paths that are stored on different volumes to fail. This problem occurred only when you implement the migration using PowerShell scripts that use the Move-Item command.
