Windows Updates

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft rolled out a cumulative update (KB4462933) for Windows 10 version 1803. The cumulative update was rolled out on October 24 for users who have installed Windows 10 April 2018 Update and it fixed several issues with the OS.

The cumulative update came with fixes for BSOD issue which occurred while removing the Bluetooth devices from the computer along with fixing a bug which prevented the launch of Windows Defender Application Guard.

The company back then not acknowledged any issues in the cumulative update but Microsoft has quietly updated the support document to confirm two bugs hitting Windows 10.

Microsoft says that the cumulative update has broken the Developer Tools in Microsoft Edge. Launching this menu will no longer work on PCs with Windows 10 version 1803.

As a temporary workaround, Microsoft has suggested users on Windows 10 x64 to log in with an administrator account and delete the below file:

“C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdgeDevToolsClient_8wekyb3d8bbwe\microsoft.system.package.metadata\Autogen\JSByteCodeCache_64.”

The users running Windows on an x86 machine would need to delete the below file and restart the browser:

“C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdgeDevToolsClient_8wekyb3d8bbwe\microsoft.system.package.metadata\Autogen\JSByteCodeCache_32”

The second issue which Microsoft has acknowledged is a bug that occurs after installing the August Preview of Quality Rollup or September 11, 2018, .NET Framework update. After installation, there will be an exception with the instantiation of SqlConnection.

As a temporary workaround, Microsoft has detailed the points to manually resolve the issue. You can find the solution to the issue by clicking here.

Microsoft is expected to fix the above reported or acknowledged issues in the upcoming November Patch Tuesday update which is to be released on November 13.

Till then users are advised to resolve the above-mentioned issues with the temporary workarounds provided or wait for the company to roll out the next Patch Tuesday Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1803.

  • Surur from MSPowerUser turned this into a horrible piece of clickbait and I applaud you, akshay, for maintaining a sense of journalistic integrity.

      MSPowerUser is just a site to troll Windows users. It doesn’t serve any other purpose.
