Update

It’s Patch Tuesday and new cumulative updates are rolling out for supported versions of Windows 10, including the October 2018 Update, the April 2018 Update and the Fall Creators Update.

Today’s update for Windows 10 has addressed the security and non-security issues.

As always, you can open Settings via Start menu and navigate to Update & Security -> Windows Update and select Check for updates to install the latest patch. If you own multiple PCs or if you would like to patch the PCs manually, you can download and install this update from here.

Build 17763.316 for October 2018 Update

Build 17763.316 for Windows 10 October 2018 Update devices addresses security issues with Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer and other components. It also comes with fixes for the following issues:

  • Addresses an issue that fails to set the LmCompatibilityLevel value correctly. LmCompatibilityLevel specifies the authentication mode and session security.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 97 file format from opening. This issue occurs if the database has column names greater than 32 characters. The database fails to open with the error, “Unrecognized Database Format”.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Windows Hello for Business Hybrid Key Trust deployment sign-in to fail if Windows 2019 Server domain controllers (DC) are used for authentication. The error is, “That option is temporarily unavailable. For now, please use a different method to sign in”. If Active Directory (AD) activity tracing is enabled, a Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) exception may occur in the Windows 2019 DC when processing a user’s sign in. Note: The AD Data Collector Set and Microsoft Azure Advanced Threat Protection (AATP) enable Active Directory activity tracing by default.
