Windows 10 Build 17134.590 includes a fix for an issue where the users won’t be able to set the LmCompatibilityLevel value correctly in some cases. Microsoft says that the LmCompatibilityLevel is supposed to specify the authentication mode and session security.

It includes a fix for another bug that may have prevented apps that use Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 97 file format from loading.
