Windows, Windows 10

Microsoft released KB4103714 yesterday; the update for Windows 10 version 1709, the Fall Creators Update, brings the build number of the system to 16299.461. It is the expected update for Windows 10 version 1709 after the releases of KB4103722 and KB4103720 for Windows 10 version 1607 and 1703 last week.

It should not come as a surprise, therefor, that the update for Windows 10 version 1709 contains some of the improvements that the other two updates included..

The update KB4103714 is available through Windows Updates. You can run manual checks for updates on machines running the version of Windows 10 to have it picked up immediately, or wait for the system to discover and install it automatically instead.

Note: running a manual check may download and install Windows 10 version 1803. If you don't want that to happen, download the standalone update from Microsoft's Update Catalog website instead. Note that you need to install the Service Stack Update KB4132650 prior to the new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1709.

Do the following to run a manual update check:

  1. Use the keys Windows-I to open the Settings application.
  2. Select Update & Security.
  3. On the Windows Update page, select "check for updates"
  4. Download any update that is discovered.

The changelog on Microsoft's website lists a large number of improvements and fixes. KB4103714 is a non-security update for Windows 10.

Tip: It is often better to wait with the installation or deployment of non-security updates because of Microsoft's recent track record of releasing updates with bugs and issues. Unless you are affected by an issue and need it fixed asap, you are usually better off if you delay the installation of the update.

Notable fixes in KB4103714 

  • Applications like Microsoft Edge stopped responding when creating new audio endpoints while audio or video playback started.
  • Fixed touch keyboard not showing up reliably in some instances.
  • Fixed an issue with UWP apps that use local crash dumps and Disk Cleanup or StorageSense not cleaning the logs.

  • Fixed a issue where Windows 10 clients failed to apply Group Policy permissions, run scripts, or retrieve roaming profiles when authenticating to 802.1x WLAN access points.
  • Added support for SameSite cookie standard in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

  • Updated time zone information issues fixed.
  • Internet Explorer dialogs appeared on the primary monitor and secondary monitor with extended display.

  • Fixed a timeout error when disconnecting VPNs from systems in Connected Standby state.
  • Display explicit errors when plugins fail to connect to prevent timeouts.
  • Addressed an issue in the DiskShadow utility.
  • Fixed the cause of the error "The data is invalid. (0x8007000D)" when using Virtual Machines.

  • Fixed issue in RemoteApp sessions that caused clicking in the foreground window to become unresponsive.
  • Addressed a issue in RemoteApp sessions that resulted in a black screen when maximizing apps on a secondary monitor.

    What mental age of reader are you targeting with the first sentence? 10?

    Why not write an article on how to *avoid* upgrading from W10 to W11. Analogous to those like me who avoided upgrading from 7 to 10 for as long as possible.

    If your paymaster Microsoft permits it, of course.

    5. Rufus
    6. Ventoy

    PS. I hate reading these “SEO optimized” articles.

    1. cdr said on January 15, 2023 at 3:32 pm

      I used Rufus to create an installer for a 6th gen intel i5 that had MBR. It upgraded using Setup. No issues except for Win 11 always prompting me to replace my local account. Still using Win 10 Pro on all my other PCs to avoid the bullying.

    bit pointless to upgrade for the sake of upgrading as you never know when you’ll get locked out because ms might suddenly not provide updates to unsupported systems.

    ps…. time travelling?

    Anyone willing to downgrade to this awful OS must like inflicting themselves with harm.

  5. basingstoke said on January 16, 2023 at 11:18 am

    I have become convinced now that anybody who has no qualms with using Windows 11/10 must fit into one of the following brackets:

    1) Too young to remember a time before W10 and W11 (doesn’t know better)

    2) Wants to play the latest games on their PC above anything else (or deeply needs some software which already dropped W7 support)

    3) Doesn’t know too much about how computers work, worried that they’d be absolutely lost and in trouble without the “”latest security””

    4) Microsoft apologist that tries to justify that the latest “features” and “changes” are actually a good thing, that improve Windows

    5) Uses their computer to do a bare minimum of like 3 different things, browse web, check emails, etc, so really doesn’t fuss

    Obviously that doesn’t cover everyone, there’s also the category that:

    6) Actually liked W7 more than 10, and held out as long as possible before switching, begrudgingly uses 10 now

    Have I missed any group off this list?

    1. Heinz Strunk said on September 19, 2023 at 3:57 pm

      You have missed in this group just about any professional user that uses business software like CAD programs or ERP Programs which are 99% of all professional users from this list.

      Linux doesn’t help anyone who is not a linux kid and apple is just a fancy facebook machine.

    Microsoft has removed KB5029351 update

    1. EP said on August 24, 2023 at 9:21 pm

      only from windows update though
      KB5029351 is still available from the ms update catalog site

  7. Anonymous said on August 24, 2023 at 11:05 pm

    1. This update is labaled as PREVIEW if it causes issues to unintelligent people, then they shouldn’t have allowed Preview updates ot install.

    2. I have installed it in a 11 years old computer, and no problems at all.

    3. Making a big drama over a bluescreen for an updated labeled as preview is ridiculous.

    This is probably another BS internet drama where people ran programs and scripts that modified the registry until they broke Windows, just for removing stuff that they weren’t even using just for the sake of it.
    Maybe people should stop playing geeks and actually either use Windows 10 or Windows 11, but don’t try to modify things just for the sake of it.

    Sometimes removing or stopping things (like defender is a perfect example) only need intelligence, not scripts or 3rd party programs that might mess with windows.

  8. john said on August 24, 2023 at 11:17 pm

    Windows 11 was a pointless release, it was just created because some of the Windows team wanted to boost sales with some sort of new and improved Windows 10. Instead, Microsoft cannot support one version well let alone two.

    1. John G. said on August 25, 2023 at 12:08 pm

      Windows 11 is the worst ugly shame by Microsoft ever. They should release with every new W11 version a complete free version of Starallback inside just to make this sh** OS functionally again.

    motherboard maker MSI has recently released a statement regarding the “unsupported processor” blue screen error for their boards using Intel 600/700 series chipsets & to avoid the KB5029351 Win11 update:

    check out the following recent articles:

    While there may be changes or updates to the Windows 10 Store for Business and Education in the future, it is premature to conclude that it will be discontinued based solely on rumors.

  12. sembrador said on September 5, 2023 at 9:32 pm

    My advice, I left win 15 years ago. Now I’m a happy linux user (linuxmint) but there is Centos, Fedora, Ubuntu depending on your needs.

  13. EP said on September 6, 2023 at 11:55 am

    motherboard maker MSI has recently released new BIOS/firmware updates for their Intel 600 & 700 series motherboards to fix the “UNSUPPORTED_PROCESSOR” problem (Sept. 6):
