Microsoft says that it has addressed an issue that causes certain devices to unexpectedly unenroll from Microsoft Intune or third-party MDM services. This build also contains additional fixes for time zone information issue.

Microsoft is also addressing issues where registration in the “Push to Install” service didn’t work on some devices and issues related to peripherals that were powered by (QoS) parameters for Bluetooth connections.

Microsoft has finally fixed an issue that blocked the OpenType fonts from printing in Win32 applications. Microsoft is also including fixes for the RemoteApp session that caused a black screen. Last but not the least, the update has also fixed an issue in IME that causes unexpected finalization of strings in apps like Outlook but only when the system is operating the Japanese input.

This build may result in one issue but it wouldn’t be a big deal for most of the users. Microsoft says that the after you install any of the July 2018 .NET Framework Security Updates, a COM component might fail to load.

Microsoft is not aware of any installation issues with this cumulative update, but we’ll find out soon in the coming weeks, as more machines receive the patch.
