KB4476976 for Windows 10 version 1809 and Server 2019 released

Microsoft released -- the missing -- cumulative update KB4476976 for Windows 10 version 1809 and Server 2019 yesterday evening to the public.

The company released cumulative updates for earlier versions of Windows 10 days ago but decided to test the update for Windows 10 version 1809 in the Release Preview ring before its official release.

Microsoft changed its strategy in regards to cumulative update releases for the latest version of Windows 10 after the update fiasco of Windows 10 version 1809. Instead of releasing cumulative updates outright, like the company has done on older versions of Windows 10, it is pushing updates to the Release Preview ring first before releasing them.

In other words, another round of testing and -- hopefully -- bug finding before the update is unleashed on the general population.

KB4476976 is available on Windows Update and as a direct download on the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Windows administrators who install the update manually need to make sure that the latest Servicing Stack Update is installed on the device.

The update shares fixes with the recently released cumulative updates for earlier versions of Windows 10. In particular:

  • Microsoft Edge may stop working with "certain display drivers".
  • Third-party applications having difficulties authenticating hotspots.
  • Promotion of non-root domains failed with error "The replication operation encountered a database error".
  • More Japanese era calendar fixes.
  • Compatibility issues with AMD R600 and R700 displays.
  • Audio compatibility issues with games that use 3D Spatial Audio Mode through multichannel audio devices or Windows Sonic for headphones.
  • FLAC playback issue (could stop responding) when using operations such as rewind.
  • The policy "Prevent users from uninstalling applications from Start Menu" did not work.
  • File Explorer stopped working when enabling Timeline and the "Allow upload of user activities" policy was set to disabled.
  • Local Experience Packs could not be downloaded from the Microsoft Store if the language was set as the active display language.
  • Some symbols appeared in "a square box on a text control".
  • Two-way audio issues during phone calls for some Bluetooth headsets.
  • TCP Fast Open was turned off on "some systems".
  • Some applications lost IPv4 connectivity if IPv6 was unbound.
  • Connectivity issue on guest virtual machines on Windows Server 2019.
  • Creation of page file on a drive with the FILE_PORTABLE_DEVICE flag caused "Windows created a temporary warning" errors.
  • Remote Desktop Services stopped accepting connections.
  • An issue in Windows Server 2019 that causes a Hyper-V VM to remain at the bootloader screen for OS selection when restarting the machine.
  • The rendering of end-user-defined characters in Edge.
  • Ltotape.sys update to add support for Linear Tape-Open 8 (LTO-8) tape drives.

The support page lists two known issues:

  • Microsoft Edge may not load resources using local IP addresses anymore. Workarounds available (Add local IP address to list of Trusted sites).
  • Microsoft Jet Database issue that throws the error "Unrecognized Database Format". Workarounds are available.

Now You: Did you install the update?

    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.

      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.

  3. sv said on January 15, 2023 at 6:40 pm

    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.

    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:

    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):
