Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3201845 for Insiders


Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3201845 for Insiders : Microsoft has just started testing a new Windows 10 cumulative update as part of the Windows Insider program, with the official release likely to take place in the coming weeks, possibly on December’s Patch Tuesday cycle.

The new cumulative update is called KB3201845 and is available for both PCs and mobile devices, with users enrolled in the Release Preview rings of the Windows Insider program now getting it via Windows Update.

There is no changelog available for the time being, but the cumulative update pushes the operating system version to 14393.479, up from 14393.447 or 14393.448 for PC and Mobile.

Cumulative updates in Windows 10

For the moment, there are no reports of failed installs of Windows 10 cumulative update KB3201845, as this has become a major concern for users of Microsoft’s latest operating system every time the firm releases new updates.

Insiders themselves have experienced issues with some previous cumulative updates, but this time, KB3201845 appears to install correctly on most systems, as we’re not aware of any bugs reported by those who received it.

As far as users running the stable version of Windows 10 are concerned, there were quite a lot of issues caused by cumulative updates, and they’re not limited just to installation problems.

Some have reported bugs after actually deploying the patch, and more recently, the company itself acknowledged that one of its cumulative updates caused some Lenovo systems to fail to boot.

The latest cumulative update for Windows 10 computers running the Anniversary Update is KB3200970 and it was released on November 2016 Patch Tuesday.

Just like it happened with its predecessors, KB3200970 experienced some installation problems as well, but there were significantly fewer complaints than for previous updates.

We’ll keep an eye out to see if Microsoft provides a changelog for this new cumulative update and we’ll let you know when it becomes available for users who aren’t enrolled in the Windows Insider program. Source: Softpedia
