KB4103714 cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1709
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:
- Use the keys Windows-I to open the Settings application.
- Select Update & Security.
- On the Windows Update page, select "check for updates"
- 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.
