  1. Windows 10 version 1903 is no longer supported after today Today, Windows 10 version 1903 is getting its final cumulative update, as it has reached its end of life. While this date has always been public knowledge, it may come as a surprise to those that weren't paying attention since 1809 support ended just last month. This applies to all SKUs of Windows 10, including Home, Pro, Pro for Workstations, Enterprise, and Education. Spring updates are only supported for 18 months, while fall updates are supported for 18 months for Home and Pro SKUs, an
  2. Microsoft starts force-upgrading users on Windows 10 1903 to 1909 Microsoft's Windows 10 May 2019 Update has been around for 17 months, and as usual for a spring release, that means that support is going to end in December. Specifically, it gets its last update on Patch Tuesday, which is December 8. That means that it's time for automatic updates, something that frankly should have started a while ago. The way Windows 10 feature updates is that Microsoft only automatically updates your machine if you're on a version that's nearing the end of suppo
  3. Windows 10 says Hello to no passwords with FIDO2 certification Microsoft moves 800 million people closer to a no-password world. Microsoft has passed another milestone on its quest to kill off passwords. The company has now gained official FIDO2 certification for Windows Hello, the Windows 10 biometric authentication system. The certification applies t
  4. Yet another bug in Win10 1903: Upgrade may knock out certain WiFi cards Microsoft just announced that it’s putting a hold on upgrading machines to Win10 version 1903 for “some devices with Intel Centrino 6205/6235 and Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards.” Here’s the full announcement: Safeguard on certain devices with some Intel and Broadcom Wi-Fi adapters Microsoft and NEC have found incompatibility issues with Intel Centrino 6205/6235 and Broadcom 802.11ac Wi-Fi cards when running Windows 10, version 1903 on specific models of NEC devices. If these devices
  5. Yet another Win10 version 1903 cumulative update video bug: Installing this month’s first cumulative update clobbers some Intel video drivers Mayank Parmar at Windows Latest has connected the dots on another Win10 version 1903 cumulative update KB 4517389 bug. (See the next post for yet another unacknowledged bug.) Per Parmar: If you install Windows 10 KB4517389 (Build 18362.418) on a PC that has Intel display driver version or possibly other versions, basic features like Start menu, Windows Search or Google Chrome will render incorrectly… At the time of
  6. Getting the error “unexpected error; quitting” in Win10 version 1903? Blame the latest cumulative update Yet another bug in this month’s first cumulative update for Win10 version 1903, KB 4517389. Our own Mark Busby described the symptoms: After installing KB4517389 on these Windows systems, when opening 16-bit applications an error message is displayed “unexpected error; quitting” … After removing the update the application works fine once more. An anonymous poster on AskWoody pointed to this Answers Forum post, which gives more details: I have a Window
  7. Another dumb block: MS induced “VMware Workstation Pro can’t run on Windows” I just heard about this from Office Watch, but checking around, it’s also described on Tenforums and on the VMWare blog. When you install any of the recent cumulative updates for Win10 1903 (the third cumulative update for September, or any of the three cumulative updates in October, including the most recent one), Windows starts blocking older versions of VMWare. The reason? MS removed VMWare from the Windows Application Compatibility database. Apparently VMWare ve
  8. Three known bugs in the latest build of Win10 version 1903 Microsoft is supposed to be keeping us informed of bugs in Win10 versions, and you’d think they’d be particularly on-the-spot about following up on bug reports in the newly christened “ready for broad deployment” version of their flagship product. Harumph. I know of three bugs — all documented on this site — that bedevil both the current release of Win10 version 1903, build 18362.387, and its predecessor, the undistributed 18362.357: The latest versions of Win10 1903 block installation of .NET 3.5. Y
  9. Surprise! Windows 10 version 1903 declared 'ready for broad deployment' With several known and well-documented bugs still cluttering things up, Microsoft late Thursday declared Win10 version 1903 as ready for business deployment. Hard to tell if it’s a declaration of stability, or a pre-1909-release panic attack. Microsoft / Valery Brozhinsky / Fermate / Getty Images It's the closest thing we have to the old "Semi-Annual Channel" and "Current Branch for Business." In the past few hours, Microsoft has given its deployment go
  10. Microsoft acknowledged a new issue leading to intermittent issues when printing or completely breaking the printing capabilities of Windows devices after installing cumulative updates issued during late September. "The print spooler service may intermittently have issues completing a print job and may result in a print job being canceled or failing," says Microsoft in the known issue's description on the Windows Release Health Dashboard. "Some apps may close or error when the print spooler fails and you may receive a remote procedure call error (RPC error)
  11. Windows 10's 'Sets' feature is gone and not expected to return Sets, Microsoft's Windows-management feature which allowed users to group data, sites and other information in tabs, is gone and not expected to come back in a future release of Windows 10, my contacts say. In 2017, Microsoft officials provided a preview of two new features coming to Windows 10: Timeline and Sets. Timeline made it into Windows 10 as part of the April 2018 Update, but Sets didn't. And it's looking like it ne
  12. Start10 Start Menu App Gets Support for Windows 10 Version 1903 Light Theme Start10 is one of the applications that provide Windows 10 users with a more customizable Start menu experience, and the latest update prepares it for the upcoming May 2019 Update. The next feature update for Windows 10 will introduce a new light theme, in addition to the dark mode, so icons and other applications need to be updated to align with this new visual facelift. With version 1.7, Start10 officially supports the light theme in Windows 10 May 2019 Update, and as you
  13. Microsoft makes Windows 10 1903 available on MSDN Surprise: Microsoft has made the Windows 10 1903 (May 2019 Update) and Windows Server 1903 bits available for download on MSDN, a month earlier than many were expecting. On April 18, some tech pros began noticing that Microsoft had made its Windows 10 1903/May 2019 Update release available on MSDN for download. If Microsoft hadn't changed its Windows 10 servicing cadence a couple weeks ago, this would be business as
  14. Microsoft Also Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4495666 for Version 1903 The April 2019 Patch Tuesday cycle brought cumulative updates for all Windows 10 versions, including for the upcoming May 2019 Update launching next month. What’s important to know is that the May 2019 Update, also referred to as version 1903, is still part of the Windows Insider program, so only testers can try it out. The cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1903 is KB4495666 and it increases the OS build number to 18362.53. As usual, if you want to check out the build number afte
  15. Windows 10 1903, Windows Server 1903 to drop password expiration requirements in proposed security guidelines Today on the Microsoft Security Guidance blog, the company has published an explanation of its draft release of its security configuration baseline settings for Windows 10 1903 and Windows Server 1903. This document sets guidelines for Group Policy baseline settings, and with this latest draft there are some significant changes. Among the most noteworthy is a change to no longer set password expiration policies that require “periodic password chan
  16. With a fix for the 'temporary profile' bug still elusive, Win10 1903 and 1909 customers should check Pause Updates Microsoft has not yet acknowledged — much less fixed — the widely publicized bug in its February Patch Tuesday update that causes Win10 1903 and 1909 customers’ desktops to disappear. If you haven’t yet installed KB 4532693, make sure Pause Updates is still protecting you. Thinkstock By now you’ve probably heard about the disappearing-profile bug in this month’s Win10 1903 and 1909 cumulative
  17. Microsoft’s latest Patch Tuesday Update(KB4515384) for Windows 10 1903 breaks audio on some PCs It now appears that alongside Windows Search bug and broken Start Menu, the recently released Cumulative Update KB4515384 has another issue, but this time it’s related to audio. Cumulative Update KB4515384 for Windows 10 1903 has a bug that either completely breaks the audio or lower the sound while playing games, according to various Reddit posts. As reported by affected users, the audio issue arose right after installing the latest Cumulative Update.
  18. Microsoft released Windows 10 May 2019 update a few weeks ago. It is annoying to see that the tech giant failed to resolve many software issues and other bugs after all this time. Windows 10 users are still reporting new issues on Windows forums every day. On top of that, every new patch brings its own set of problems rather than solving the old ones. Recently, many users who upgraded to Windows 10 v1903 reported that Photoshop and Snagit stopped working on their computers. Adobe Photoshop is a popular image editor tool among users. Snagit is a
  19. Windows 10 version 1903: some upgrade blocks lifted and new problems Microsoft released the final version of Windows 10 version 1903, the May 2019 Update, at the end of May 2019. The release replaces Windows 10 version 1809 and will be around for longer because Windows 10 19H2, the second feature update of 2019, will just be a cumulative update and not a full feature update. The new feature update for Windows 10 has had its share of issues but was not nearly as buggy as the Windows 10 version 1809 update that Microsoft had to pull for about six weeks because of major i
  20. Microsoft: Win10 1903 having problems with Bluetooth speakers This one’s odd. According to the just-posted KB 4518538, “Bluetooth speakers don’t work after update 4505903 is installed on Windows 10, version 1903.” After you install update 4505903 on Windows 10, version 1903 on a computer that has an internal speaker installed, you experience one of the following issues: A Bluetooth speaker can’t connect to the computer. A Bluetooth speaker can connect to the computer. However, the speaker output sounds noisy (bad quality). A Bluetooth speak
  21. Microsoft has placed a compatibility hold on Windows 10 devices that prevents them from upgrading to Windows 10 1903 if they are using older Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers. This is because certain versions of the software could cause Windows 10 to crash or not operate properly in version 1903. If a Windows 10 user has Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) driver versions between and installed, Windows 10 will not upgrade to version 1903. Instead, a user with this compatibility hold will see a message stating: "Intel Rapid Stora
  22. AdDuplex: Windows 10 May 2019 Update doubles its usage share AdDuplex has published their report for July, revealing how well various versions of Windows 10 are scoring. The report has finally brought some good news for the latest Windows 10 May 2019 update. As you can see in the above image, The Windows 10 May 2019 Update usage share now stands at 11.4 percent — more than five percent gain in usage share since last month. Windows 10 April 2018 Update(1803) is still on top with 53.7 percent of usage share, down from 58 percent last month. Windows 10 Oc
  23. Microsoft releases KB4505903 for Windows 10 version 1903 Microsoft released the second cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1903, KB4505903, on Friday evening to the public. The company tested the update previously in Insider versions to give it another round of testing before releasing it to the public. KB4505903 was released on Thursday initially but Microsoft pulled it on that day to re-release it on Friday. No word on why it was released and then pulled on Thursday. KB4505903 is a massive update for Windows 10 version 1903 that fixes lots of i
  24. A tiny sop to Win10 1903 users bitten by the KB 4512941 Cortana/SearchUI.exe redlining bug Microsoft has finally acknowledged – by tweet, no less – what many have known since Friday: The “optional, non-security” August patch for Win10 version 1903, KB 4512941, can redline your PC. Thanks, Cortana. Franck V. (CC0) On Friday, Microsoft released KB 4512941, the long-anticipated second August cumulative update for Win10 version 1903 – which is to say, the latest patch for the latest version of Windows. Within a few hours, people were complaining on va
  25. KB4512941 for Windows 10 version 1903 The second cumulative patch for the current version of Windows 10, in this case Windows 10 version 1903, is always late to the party. Microsoft released updates for earlier versions of Windows 10 that it still supports about two weeks ago -- KB4512534 for Windows 10 version 1809 -- to fix a huge number of issues including the Visual Basic issue that was introduced on the August 2019 Patch Day. The update KB4512941 for Windows 10 version 1903 and Windows Server version 1903 is available via Windows Update, Microsoft Update, the Micr
