#Microsoft #Windows10 – Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3199209 : Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 cumulative update for systems running the Anniversary Update (1607), but the company hasn’t provided any release notes, so it’s hard to tell what exactly it’s improving.
Windows 10 cumulative update KB3199209 is now available for download via Windows Update, and Microsoft isn’t saying a single thing about it, even though interest in such updates has been fairly big lately. There’s no KB page just yet, and the Windows 10 update history page hasn’t received an update, so there’s absolutely no info on it.
But even so, users are strongly recommended to download and install this new cumulative update, and until now, there are no reports of failed installs or any other issues experienced after deploying it. But as always, it could take a while until more users get to install it, so we’ll be keeping an eye out on reports to see if there’s something wrong with it.
“Botched cumulative updates”
The latest cumulative updates released by Microsoft have caused problems on quite a lot of computers, and in most of the cases, they failed to install with error messages that said almost nothing about what went wrong. Microsoft investigated all these complaints and released fixes, but even so, there are users who’re still unable to install cumulative updates.
In the case of KB3199209, Microsoft might be trying to fix issues that users have been reporting with previous cumulative updates, as the download size is quite small. For example, the x86 version of the update is only 5.1 MB, while the x64 package is 11.2 MB big.
What’s also surprising is that this new CU does not require a system reboot, which isn’t something you’d normally expect from a cumulative update, but hopefully, everything would install successfully for everyone out there.
We’ve also contacted Microsoft to see what’s new in this cumulative update and we’ll update the article should we get more information. In the meantime, you are recommended to install it anyway because it’s likely to bring fixes refining the performance of the OS. Source: softpedia
