Microsoft patches several versions of Windows 10

Latest Windows 10 update breaks Windows Media Player, Win32 apps in general

Latest Windows 10 update breaks Windows Media Player, Win32 apps in general

Beyond critical bugs deleting files and loss of Intel's integrated sound, the latest developments to Update 1809 have seemingly broken Windows Media Player. Microsoft said the bug is triggered if users had enabled redirection of Windows user data folders away from their default location.

To ensure a seamless experience, Microsoft is blocking devices with iCloud for Windows (version 7.7.0.27) software installed from being offered Window 10, version 1809 until this issue has been resolved.

This new one comes from Build 17763.134, an update that was released November 13 on top of the re-released but still buggy October 2018 update.

Most of these updates include bug fixes and security patches, so nothing much to see here.

Right after that list, however, is a short list of known problems, including the aforementioned bug.

South Africa's points came via a second-half Jesse Kriel try in the corner and penalties from Handre Pollard and Elton Jantijies. Wales scored two first-half tries - through prop Tomas Francis and wing Liam Williams - to take a 14-3 lead into the break.

Microsoft just updated Windows 10 to fix the file association bug we reported and some other issues.

Additionally, certain users can not set Win32 tools including Notepad to be the default program for certain file types.

Microsoft is expected to release this cumulative update KB4469342 to general consumers in the coming days.

Microsoft temporarily pulled the update last month due to a file deletion bug, where users were inadvertently overwriting files when moving them from compressed folders.
