Microsoft, finally, updated the update history support page for Windows 10 version 1809 on the company website. The page highlights the network mapping issue that users may experience after installation of the new version of Windows 10 and two additional issues that we did not have on the radar up to that point.
The network mapping issue prevents mapped network drives from reconnecting to the Windows 10 device on start. Microsoft published workarounds to address the issue while it is working on a fix that resolves it.
Comments here on this site suggest that the issue is not affecting all devices upgraded to the new feature update for Windows 10. If you feel lucky, you could upgrade and see if the issue is present, and downgrade or use one of the workarounds if it is.
Microsoft put an upgrade block in place for certain hardware and software configurations. The Trend Micro products OfficeScan, Deep Security, Endpoint Encryption, Vulnerability Protection, and Worry-Free Business Security, business endpoint security products, have compatibility issues and devices that run any of these products are blocked from receiving the October 2018 Update for Windows 10 for now.
Trend Micro published a support page that highlights when updates for the mentioned products become available. Updates for some products that resolve the compatibility issue are already available, others will become available later this month or are listed as TBD.
Installation of the feature update without installation of these updates may " render certain key features of your Trend Micro software inoperable or cause other unintended circumstances" according to Trend Micro.
Administrators who install the new version of Windows 10 via an installation package get a notification during setup that informs them about the issue and the requirement to install updates for installed Trend Micro products before proceeding with the installation of the upgrade.
Microsoft blocked devices with AMD Radeon HD2000 and HD4000 graphics processors from receiving the Windows 10 version 1809 update. The hardware devices are not supported by AMD anymore.
While it is possible to upgrade to Windows 10 version 1809 on devices with these hardware configurations, users may notice issues during day to day operations.
Microsoft Edge tabs may stop responding according to Microsoft, and the error message "INVALID_POINTER_READ_c0000005_atidxx64.dll" may be displayed to users in these situation.
Microsoft notes that users may experience performance issues with the "lock screen or the ShellExperienceHost" as well.Advertisement
