Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4015438 Released, Fixes KB4013429 Issues

Recommended Posts




This CU is shipped to Windows 10 version 1607


Windows 10 cumulative update KB4013429, which was released on this month’s Patch Tuesday, has proved to be quite a fiasco for some unlucky users, as not only that it failed to install on a number of PCs but it also caused various issues on others.


Today, however, Microsoft has decided to publish another cumulative update, this time KB4015438, in order to fix some of the problems reported by users with KB4013429.


First and foremost, this new cumulative update pushes Windows 10 version to 14393.969 and is obviously addressed to computers running the Anniversary Update (1607).


According to the KB page, it fixes a known issue that causes Windows DVD Player and some other third-party apps that use the Microsoft MPEG-2 handling libraries to crash, a problem that we’ve already told you about last week after Patch Tuesday.


More issues fixed

Additionally, there’s a second fix that Microsoft says was also caused by the previous cumulative update and exists on both Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.


“Addressed a known issue with KB4013429, that some customers using Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 1607 Client with Switch Embedded Teaming (SET) enabled might experience a deadlock or when changing the physical adapter’s link speed property. This issue is most commonly seen as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION or when verifier is enabled a VRF_STACKPTR_ERROR is seen in the Memory dump,” the company explains.


Until now, there are no reports of failed installs and KB4015438 appears to work correctly on our Windows 10 computers here at Softpedia. Microsoft itself says it’s not aware of any issues with this update, but it remains to be seen how smoothly everything works after more users get to install it.


In the meantime, if you experienced issues with the previous cumulative update, this new release is your only option, especially because in some cases not even system reset appeared to work. We’ll keep an eye on how this new update installs for users across the world and will update the article with more info.
