Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496


#Windows10 #Microsoft – Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 : Microsoft has just released a new cumulative update for Windows 10, pushing the operating system version to 14393.222 after previously testing it with the help of the Insider program.

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 is only aimed at computers running the Anniversary Update released on August 2, and includes quality improvements, with no new features being added.

Microsoft says in the official changelog that this update brings improved performance of push and local notifications, while also refining the reliability of some built-in Windows tools, including Windows Update Agent, shared drives, virtual private network (VPN), clustering, HTTP downloads, Internet Explorer 11, Hyper-V platform, multimedia playback, and Microsoft Edge.

There are also plenty of fixes available in this update, and a problem that caused the Movies & TV app on the Xbox to stop working when attempting to play content that was just purchased from the Store should no longer be there. You can find the full changelog in the box after the jump.

No issues just yet

KB3194496 was originally released to users participating in the Windows Insider program, and just like many other cumulative updates, it experienced some installation issues that prevented it from being deployed on a number of systems.

It appears, however, that Microsoft actually fixed this problem before pushing it out for all users, as everything seems to be working correctly right now, but we’ll keep an eye out on reports and will let you know if anything unexpected happens.

The next cumulative update is expected to launch on October 11 when Microsoft also pushes the next Patch Tuesday fixes, and this rollout is very likely to include updates for the other Windows 10 versions, such as the November Update and the original 10240 release.

To download KB3194496, launch PC settings in Windows 10 and go to Windows Update > Check for updates. A system reboot is needed after the update successfully downloads. source:softpedia
