Now You: Have you installed any of the patches? What is your experience?
Thanks a lot for the summary !
Thanks Martin for the news.
Hi Martin. But the support for Windows 10 1607 and 1703 not was ended?
Only for “Home” licenses.
In the changelog page of KB4467699 Microsoft says: “Windows 10, version 1703, reached end of service on October 8, 2018. Devices running Windows 10 Home, Pro, Pro for Workstation, and IoT Core editions will no longer receive monthly security and quality updates that contain protection from the latest security threats. To continue receiving security and quality updates, Microsoft recommends updating to the latest version of Windows 10.”
Then the update are available only for Windows 10 Enterprise and Education editions? Sorry but i’m confused now. Thanks for you patience.
Yes, that is correct. See the lifecycle page on Microsoft’s website: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet
Basically, what it boils down to currently is that Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10 are supported for longer, currently 1 year longer than Home or Pro editions.
“Microsoft surely wants to get it right this time…” – MS doesn’t even have in-house testers, ROFL
Nice to see that default apps is fixed. I can confirm it works after updating.
I have faced a probleme with the update KB4467681 When i have tried to install it on Windows 10 version 1709 i got the error message “The update is not applicable on your computer”
Could you please help on this
