KB4093105 for Windows 10 version 1709

Microsoft published KB4093105, a new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1709, the Fall Creators Update, some hours ago. The non-security update is distributed via Windows Update and other updating services, and available as a standalone download from the Microsoft Update Catalog website.

The update brings the build number of the operating system to 16299.402. Microsoft released the cumulative updates KB4093120 and KB4093117 for Windows 10 version 1703 and 1607 last week, and KB4093105 shares several of the fixes with these earlier releases.

KB4093105 fixes issues in Microsoft Outlook, Windows Hello, File Explorer, BitLocker, Microsoft Edge and other programs and core operating system features.

Note: Windows Update failed to pick up the new update on a Windows 10 Pro machine. It returned KB4093112 instead which Microsoft released on the April 2018 Patch Tuesday; that update was installed on the machine already, however. Manual download from the Microsoft Update Catalog site and installation worked, however.

    It’s been long ago since I got failed update D:

    Error code: 0x800f0922 (very similar error code to earlier update, many users got error code: 0x800f0900)

    Not surprised, if we see today or tomorrow more discussion about this, atleast reddit seem to be active about some problems.

    How many TERRABYTE are pushed out by Microsoft each year in updates for Windows 10 (a buggy and bloated Windows version that never reaches RTM) ?

    Off-topic, sorry, but does someone happen to know where to find the monthly “Security Only” updates for Windows 8.1 x64? So not the full monthly “Quality” rollup, but just the security updates?

    Somehow, since last January my searching in the Microsoft Update Catalog has not found any new “Security Only” updates for Win 8.1 at all. I can hardly believe MS discontinued these updates, but where have they gone? Maybe they’ve been named differently, or something like that?

    Thanks in advance to whoever can shed a little light on this.

    “Software Restriction Policy Caused Microsoft to stop working.”

    Now that’s funny.

    Windows 10 x64 Home KB4093105 installed without error for me per Windows Update history. I used manual Windows Update to initiate the install. It briefly hung at 80% download and downloaded again successfully. The install hung at 20% and also automatically began the install again successfully the second time..

    “Note: Windows Update failed to pick up the new update on a Windows 10 Pro machine. …”

    My Windows 10 pro machine picked it up. It delayed a bit at 99% downloaded. It then installed the update.

    i guess no fix for the Sleep bug. Since 3 updates before this, my laptop will sometimes Blue Screen crash when attempting to Sleep, either by the time set in Power Settings or when i do it manually. So i disabled Sleep in the Power Settings and don’t put it into sleep myself, instead just close everything and shut down. No more blue screen crashes, fuck Microsoft.

      Let’s take a step back for a moment.

      It’s easy to blame Windows for everything that goes wrong when using Windows functions. However, this may not be a Windows issue. Maybe you have some other software running under Windows which does not allow the computer to sleep.

      Try running in safe mode (use google to find out how) and then sleep. If that works, you have another issue.

      Just my 2 cents.

        Nah, it started immediately after the update as i use Sleep mode everyday. And i didn’t install anything else or update anything else.

        Something in the update triggered a caused a glitch or is causing something else to cause this glitch.

        BUT, that is a good idea to try Safe Mode. Can’t believe i didn’t think of that, Thanks.

    Has this update been pulled? Not available via Windows Update nor WSUS for me.

      If it was pulled, it would not be available right NOW on the catalog.

      Update does have some funky quirks. In my case, it found it right away on one machine but not on another.

      If you are anxious, you can manually download through the catalog. Or just wait for update to wake up and do its thing.

    Some people seem to even NOT realize how to stop automatic updates in Windows 10, due to Martin and other Commenters often told here.

    Play it again, Sam, play as time goes by, so….Win 10 updates nowadays is NOT a guarantee for a stable System. Why? because Win 10 is a Service, so how to stop annoying bugs in autoupdates? Block it,..and decide, like win 7 which you want to install, hide and so on.

    How to? Use Windows Update Mini Toll, no bugs, no malware. no install, why? Because Win 10 is an On/Off System, so no install needed.

    Then choose disable automatic updates and search manually, then see Internet to see what bugs are introduced and decide to hide update KB XYZ.

    For me, easiest way to prevent BSOD and other annoying bugs.

    Hey Microsoft, what’s up with the Windows Update KB4093105, released on 4/23/2018? Lots of users, including me, are having problems with installation. Here’s the details…

    1. KB4093105 downloads and begins installation with no problems…or so it seems.
    2. This update installs up to 30%, then my computer reboots, then finishes installing the remaining 70%. And then…
    3. An error appears telling me it couldn’t complete the update, undoing changes, don’t turn off your computer.

    I tried to install KB4093105 via Windows Update twice, once with the download/standalone version from the Microsoft Online Catalog and all three times I got the same error. Then it tried to install a 4th time on its own and again failed.

    I tried the steps at these locations…

    …but no such luck.

    Anyone know what else I can try? In the meantime, I have disabled Windows Update to prevent further attempts to download/install KB4093105.

      I still have the same problem, my last update that failed was on 5/17/2018. I’ve had 18 failed installations. I have tried to disable Windows Update but it does not work. I am using Windows 64 Home.

      How many times does the update need to fail before Microsoft stops sending you the same update?

      I went to Settings > Update & Security > View installed update history

    Yes!
    I had to do that also. The “couldn’t complete, unding changes” message (that and a long delay after) took place every time I restarted the machine. No way to fix it, other than to turn the Windows Update entirely OFF. All started with this KB4093105, wish it had never come into my life. Now must try to figure out what else to do?
