Microsoft has removed a Windows 10 19H1 upgrade block that was put in place after the company discovered a compatibility issue with certain anti-cheat software.

 
While the software giant hasn’t provided any specifics regarding the anti-cheating apps potentially encountering the errors, Microsoft warned that affected computers could hit a fatal crash when launching games.

Microsoft said it was collaborating with anti-cheat software developers to resolve the problem, and now it looks like the work on a fix advances at the desired pace.

“Many games that use anti-cheat software have released fixes for the issue causing PCs to bugcheck (GSOD). The upgrade block that prevents Windows Insiders from updating to the latest build has been removed as of 3/29. If you run into an issue with your game causing your PC to bugcheck, please file feedback via Feedback Hub so the team can dig in and take a look,” Microsoft announced.

Once again, no details were shared on what anti-cheating software or games might be impacted by this issue, but users are recommended to send feedback to the company if they hit a fatal crash when launching or playing games.May update now in RP ringFixes like this one are the reason Microsoft decided to keep the Windows 10 May 2019 Update in the Release Preview ring for more than a month.

By shipping the RTM build to users and then servicing devices with further cumulative updates, Microsoft can make sure it tests the final version more thoroughly, technically being able to isolate and resolve bugs before the public rollout begins.

Microsoft said the first production devices are scheduled to receive the May update later this month.

Earlier this week, the company also announced the upgrade blocks for Windows 10 May 2019 Update, explaining that some devices might not be allowed to install the new OS version until certain issues are resolved.
