Microsoft maintains a list of known issues of the new Windows 10 feature update, Windows 10 May 2019 Update or Windows 10 version 1903.

The rollout of the new version of Windows started on May 21, 2019; not every system may be upgraded right away as Microsoft plans to increase the quota gradually to monitor feedback carefully.

The known issues page lists several unresolved and mitigated issues currently. Some of these issues are minor, e.g. Night Light settings not saving correctly in some occasions while others, e.g. AMD Raid driver incompatibilities or not being able to discover or connect to Bluetooth devices, are major.

windows 10 1903 known issues

All issues are listed as being under investigation currently. Workarounds are available for some.

The following issues are known currently:

  • Night light settings do not apply in some cases
  • AMD RAID driver incompatibility
  • D3D applications and games may fail to enter full-screen mode on rotated displays
  • Older versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software incompatible

Intermittent loss of Wi-Fi connectivity

Some older devices may experience loss of Wi-Fi connectivity due to an outdated Qualcomm driver.

The dGPU may occasionally disappear from device manager on Surface Book 2 with dGPU

Some apps or games that needs to perform graphics intensive operations may close or fail to open on Surface Book 2 devices with Nvidia dGPU.

Initiating a Remote Desktop connection may result in black screen

When initiating a Remote Desktop connection to devices with some older GPU drivers, you may receive a black screen.

Devices starting using PXE from a WDS or SCCM servers may fail to start

Devices that start up using Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) may fail to start with the error "Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed".

RASMAN service may stop working and result in the error “0xc0000005”

RASMAN service may stop working and result in the error “0xc0000005”
The Remote Access Connection Manager (RASMAN) service may stop working and you may receive the error “0xc0000005” on devices where the diagnostic data level is manually configured to the non-default setting of 0.


Windows Sandbox may fail to start with error code "0x80070002"

The issue affects Windows 10 systems in which the system language was changed during the update process. Windows Sandbox cannot be started on affected devices, and the error "ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND (0x80070002)" is displayed in that case.

Loss of functionality in Dynabook Smartphone Link app

Affects the Dynabook Smartphone Link after updating to the latest version of Windows. May affect the display of phone numbers in the call menu and ability to answer calls on the Windows PC.


Gamma ramps, color profiles, and night light settings do not apply in some cases

Microsoft has identified some scenarios where gamma ramps, color profiles and night light settings may stop working.

Display brightness may not respond to adjustments

Affects Windows 10 devices with Intel hardware. Brightness changes may not apply immediately. A restart should resolve that so that the changes are applied.


Audio not working with Dolby Atmos headphones and home theater

Affects the two Dolby Atmos applications that are available on the Microsoft Store and may lead to a loss of audio. Microsoft notes that the issue is caused by a licensing configuration error.


Duplicate folders and documents showing in user profile directory

The issue affects systems on which certain known folders, e.g. Desktop or Downloads, were redirected to another location. Users may see empty folders in the default location after the upgrade.

Update block in place.

Error attempting to update with external USB device or memory card attached

The update to Windows 10 version 1903 fails if an external USB device or a SD memory card is attached to the system during the upgrade. Microsoft notes that this may also affect internal hard drives.


Unable to discover or connect to Bluetooth devices

Compatibility issues with certain Realtek and Qualcomm Bluetooth radios causes discovery and connection issues. Updates to newer drivers may resolve the issues. For Qualcomm, Microsoft recommends drivers greater than, for Realtek, driver versions greater than 1.5.1011.0.

Night light settings do not apply in some cases

Night light settings may not be saved under certain circumstances. Microsoft recommends disabling and enabling the feature, or restarting the computer.

Intel Audio displays an intcdaud.sys notification

Windows 10 may display What needs your attention when trying to upgrade systems with certain Intel Display Audio device drivers. If the issue refers to intcdaud.sys, the system is affected and that may result in higher than normal battery usage.

Microsoft recommends that admins click on back to stop the upgrade.

Update block in place.

Cannot launch Camera app

Users on devices with Intel RealSense SR300 and Intel RealSense S200 cameras may not be able to use the Camera app. The error "Close other apps, error code: 0XA00F4243" may be displayed when the Camera app is started.

Temporary workarounds include unplugging the camera and plugging it back in, disabling and re-enabling the driver in the Device Manager, or restarting the RealSense service.

Update block in place.

Intermittent loss of Wi-Fi connectivity

An outdated Qualcomm driver may cause Wi-Fi connectivity issues on "older computers". Microsoft recommends that device drivers are updated to resolve the issue.

Update block in place.

AMD RAID driver incompatibility

AMD Raid systems with driver versions lower than cannot be upgraded to the new version of Windows 10. Installation stops with error messages such as "AMD Ryzen™ or AMD Ryzen™ Threadripper™ configured in SATA or NVMe RAID mode".

Microsoft recommends that users download and install the latest AMD Raid drivers.

Update block in place.

D3D applications and games may fail to enter full-screen mode on rotated displays

Certain Direct3D apps or games may fail to launch fullscreen mode if the default display orientation has been changed.

Microsoft recommends that users run applications in windowed mode or on a secondary non-rotated display, or change compatibility settings of applications and games to "Disable full screen optimizations".

Older versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software incompatible

Games that use older versions of the anti-cheat software BattlEye may cause the entire system to crash after installing Windows 10 version 1903. A newer version of the BattlEye software is available that resolves the issue.

Update block in place.

    Some anti-virus softwares/firewall (like Avast Premier on my case) are not properly registring on Windows Security. When you click manage providers it is not present.

  2. Nomo Potatos said on May 22, 2019 at 2:08 pm

    Those are all issues that should not be present at all in an OS that is released to the public. 1903 is an early Beta release, at best. Avoid at all cost. The incompetent potatodevelopers and the useless headpotatos in charge at Redmond HQ, Potato Central, have once again lost their minds.

    Not a Windows 10 1903 but a Sandboxie 5.30-problem. Files can’t be download from a sandboxed browser.

      I haven’t been able to see 1903 on WU yet Upgraded via WSUS and MCT removes background. And its a pain the neck if you cut the ISO to USB and try to update over USB.

  5. JohnIL said on May 22, 2019 at 4:13 pm

    I just found it really sluggish at times, even after all the updates and driver installs. Edge has some memory issues as well but I don’t intend to use it so it won’t be a issue. Honestly I am surprised with the issues still to be resolved Microsoft still is pushing it out to devices that seek it.

    Oddly enough, Microsoft has been more responsible for reporting and offering advice for any “issues” that are now known to exist as reported on the “official” MS site:

    One repeating paragraph beneath each well-explained “issue” is the recommendation to not perform the upgrade, either automatically, manaully, or through the Media Creation Tool:

    “Note We recommend that you do not attempt to manually update using the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue has been resolved.

    Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.”

    Even approximate times are given for when the “issue” will be resolved. It’s quite the change from previous builds.

    Bascially, MS is saying, “Don’t upgrade on a production machine.”

    Easy enough to understand, but I already sense multitudinous users upgrading because they are still in the XP mind set that regarded all upgrades and patches essential to security and stability.

    Of course, rather than read what MS has already told them, they will go ahead and install the 1903 upgrade [so they can complain?].

        Not every commenter here is a native English speaker who got straight As in English composition; some may be posting from smartphones; and some may be less-than-perfect typists with less-than-perfect eyesight. I understood what sdikas was saying and that’s what counts.

    I was wondering why my computer was not prompting me to upgrade. Now I know: “Duplicate folders and documents showing in user profile directory”.

  17. Conan The Barber said on May 23, 2019 at 9:58 am

    Let’s look at the bright side: Your computer won’t be “upgraded” if you slap anything in a usb port or a SD slot =) It’s 2019, and the OS with almost monopoly can’t get anything right. They’re not even trying anymore. You gotta laugh.. or cry.. Can’t wait for this autumn when the next upgrade comes along, with exciting features like: The volume goes to 11 & Virtual piece of tape for your webcam, only if you sign up for a Microsoft account. Gonna order my “Windows 10 Upgrade Blocker” usb dongles from China now, buy one get a thousand for free. Made by Huawei.

      @Conan The Barber:

      Here I am in the midst of switching to Linux, but … the volume’s going to go to *11*, you say? ;-)

      1. Conan The Barber said on May 24, 2019 at 10:37 am


        Go ahead, make the jump. Many linux distros already allow volume levels to 11, and beyond! No virtual tape though.. yet. But I think it might be way harder to get infected by RAT on a linux machine than it is on a Windows malwaremagnet. Still, it’s good practice to always do nude yoga or look for pimples between buttcheeks far away from computers.

    Also, going to add and remove applications the gui closes. From the settings menu, the gui also closes when clicking on “Apps”

        Microshit; I like that. lol

        Yes, the gui closes when clicking on “Apps”. I thought it was just me. LOL
        I noticed that if I want about 5 minutes after I restart the computer, then the Apps button will work.

  19. WinboisCorner said on May 23, 2019 at 2:44 pm

    Just because Microsoft confirms those issues, it doesn’t mean there are no more issues. Just look at all those errors logged in the event viewer, right?

  20. Peterc said on May 23, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    On an extremely tangentially related note, the Antergos Linux distribution has just been officially discontinued. Its developers will be releasing a de-Antergosification update in the near future to turn existing Antergos installs into ordinary Arch installs. Users who still want a user-friendly-ish Arch distro are encouraged to switch to Manjaro.

    If you using NIC teaming on Intel NICS there is an issue with it not working after updating, it’s a known issue Intel have acknowledged with a fix on the way. I think the solution is to uninstall and reinstall the driver, but that did not work for me if broke all the networking and killed the WiFi devices too. Just rolled back to the previous update and all is well again.

  22. Phil said on May 24, 2019 at 3:20 am

    I can’t even install it.. it stops at 60% progress with this..
    no error codes.. troubleshooting finds no problems.. and I can’t find any solution

  25. Matias said on May 25, 2019 at 4:28 am

    With the F200 realsense camera is the same problem. Camera app not working and Windows Hello not working.

  26. Bruce F. Bading said on May 25, 2019 at 4:53 am

    Add broken menu button to the list. 4 out of 4 customers experienced this in their sandbox and have withheld the 1903 rollout. The issue is partially correctable, but came back on 2 of the 4 after some fixes were made. All 4 continued to show Cortana and ShellExperienceHost application issues. All 4 customers re-imaged their sandboxes back to 1809 and will wait to see what Microsoft does about this fairly major bug.

  27. Michael F Fousse said on May 26, 2019 at 7:14 pm

    Stardock 10 barely works. Favorites (bookmarks) causes screen to go black and then nothing. Only browser that is not failing is Internet Explorer; attempting to use Chrome cause screen to go black and all icons then refresh. Control panel works sometimes. This is sad that MS released this… had had NO problems with 1809. Hmmm?

  28. brad warren said on May 28, 2019 at 6:57 am

    Another BUG not listed . . . i found my webcam in use live streaming via microsoft GAME BAR even after turning everthing off it was still running . . . i was left with no choice but to roll back windows 10 pro X64 to 1809 and paused any updates untill july 2

    I have high latency spikes in latencymon, the sinner is:

    Did not have this problem in 1809 and it was optimized for audio

  31. Tom said on May 29, 2019 at 5:53 am

    Yes can confirm that 1903 has huge latency spices with ntoskrnl.exe. There is a thread about it here:

    Updated to May 2019 and now I have intermittent black screens while browsing on Chrome!

  33. Andy said on May 30, 2019 at 8:42 am

    Ever since I upgraded to 1903, Windows doesn’t read my XMP profile correctly, and sets my memory clocks back to 1600 Mhz. My memory sticks should be running at 3200 Mhz. This is not a BIOS / UEFI issue.

  34. Laurence said on May 30, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    My 2 cents: Minimize/maximize buttons not working. My desktop shortcut icons disappeared, as well as all my document file folders. Forcing me to go into file explorer to find my stuff. In the midst of this, the “old” normal desktop re-appeared briefly with a new color theme, then disappeared on restart. I system restored to a point prior to 1903 update. Now everything’s back to normal.

    Windows is making itself a full-time unpaid job.

  35. Ras said on May 31, 2019 at 9:41 am

    Windows crashes and reboots when i click on a hyperlink in an e-mail (Outlook 2016). Haven’t solved this issue yet.

    Also, Comodo firewall stopped working (Comodo Agent kept crashing). Had to do a reinstall of the firewall, works fine now.

        Are you referring to the Outlook problem? My pc is clean as a whistle. But in case you’re not joking.

        I have done a full scan with Avast!
        A boot scan with Avast!
        A scan with Hitman Pro.
        A full scan with Emsisoft Emergency Kit.
        A full scan with Super Anti Spyware.
        A full scan with Malwarebytes Anti Malware.
        A scan with AdwCleaner.

        My girlfriend has the same rebooting problem with her Outlook 2016. She gets the crash even upon starting Outlook. But also when she wants to open a PDF. She has a different laptop and a different Outlook setup.

        So, no malware problem but a Windows 1903 Beta problem where the masses are abviously the testers.

    Ram usage jumps to nearly 100% when playing games causing major latency issues. Fps are not affected really but frame times are through the roof, hitting nearly 60 ms. Anyone else having these issues?

    1. Debbie said on June 3, 2019 at 6:47 pm

      Yes, I’ve noticed major lagging, not just gaming, though I do a lot of that, but also in LR and PS. The mouse and keyboard are all over the place, laggy then suddenly responsive. It’s getting to be utter s****

    1. Ras said on June 5, 2019 at 3:17 pm

      Hi Jose, that is the exact same stopcode i get when i click on a hyperlink in Outlook 2016 on my Dell laptop. Too bad there isn’t more information because this stopcode is too general to pinpoint the root cause.

      This is also the same stopcode my girlfriends gets on her Lenovo laptop when she starts Outlook 2016 or when she tries to open a PDF-document for instance.

      So Windows version 1903 broke Office. I performed a repair of my Office, but that did not help.

      I don’t feel like reinstalling Office all over again, but that might help. I don’t know. I’m waiting (and expecting) a fix from Microsoft for this big mess.

      This is also (not yet) a official reported problem of release 1903, i almost can’t believe it. This must affect a lot of people.

      1. Quinn said on July 24, 2019 at 9:09 pm

        We have a similar Outlook issue, especially with loading external documents into or out of Outlook. Still looking for a fix.

    مثلاً وقتی اتوکد 2020 یا 2019 را نصب می کنم بخوبی نصب می شود اما بعد از راه اندازی مجدد یا خاموش کردن رایانه ویندوز بالا نمیاد.

    ممنون می شوم اگر کسی مشکل من را حل کند.
    i will thank from person that solve my issue

    recently updated to 1903 with following issues
    Loss of MS Windows store
    Mail function not working and Mail app disappeared
    Other apps shown as tiles fail to open (try then fail)

    MS Support so far have had three long calls with far eastern help desk – reinstalled Update second time – made no difference
    Currently waiting another call back but have little expectations.

    At current rate i now have laptop with no working operating system due to this CRAP update.

    Ever since the 1903 upgrade all my downloads are capped at 10mb/s and I’ve changed absolutely nothing, so something in this version is throttling the speed limits because I was always up around 32mb/sec on anything I downloaded from the Internet. Anyone else have this issue?

    1. Raziel said on July 15, 2019 at 1:51 pm

      Yup, also had this problem. Same machine running Linux, got speed up to 800mbps. While in 1903, limited to 300+. WTF M$!

    AMD Radeon settings program broken by Windows 1903 update

    AMD Radeon Settings Console window hangs, eventually throwing the error:

    “Unsupported 64 bit Application… radeon-software-adrenalin-2019-19.6.2-minimalsetup-190617_64bit.exe” cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor…”. The program ran flawlessly for the past year, before the 1903 update!

    Just updated my OS from 1809 to 1903. It is my main music computer (DAW)

    It upgraded fine but when I tried to run either BandLab’s Cakewalk Sonar or Reason 10 I got this error:

    Throw RegOpenKeyEx(candidateKey) in copy Estimated Size

    Both programs failed to run and I had to go to the TaskManager to shut them down. One DAW, Reason, (latest release) ran just fine.

    I ended up going back to version 1809 and everything works fine again.

    If anyone has any ideas on why this is happening, I’d appreciate it. I can find nothing about it on the Web.

    new issue for 1903 reported recently on, Martin

    some windows update “deferral” settings may “disappear” after changing certain settings:

    I am finding that since this update, whenever I am streaming content from BBC Sounds, after a certain length of time, the whole screen goes blank and shuts down! If I happen to be recording anything on Audacity, the whole thing is lost!

    Version 2019 was a disaster for me. On my first logon after the upgrade, my personal profile failed to load. A reboot solved that issue. Then I noticed all by task bar icons had disappeared as had half my desktop shortcuts. When I opened my browser, all bookmarks had been deleted. I tried to go back to a previous restore point but they had all been deleted. The good news is that I was able to back out to the previous version (1809). I sure hope MS do better next time!

    hp 1040d ATA (DVD Writer) eject does not function after updating to 1903. Cannot replace cdrom.inf which is win10 system file with another. I can manually eject but it won’t eject with system commands.

  53. Wellington said on June 28, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    The update 1903 is causing my browsers (all them) crash constantly, the black screen appears, and when this occurs I have a high CPU consumption. After that my only solution (momentarily) is restart the system.

    I have the same high latency spikes in latencymon,ntoskrnl.exe seems to be the issue (really high spikes and droped audio). I work with audio and must roll back to a more stable version as 1709. Please Microsoft solve this, is impossible to work in this terrible conditions

    QUik Quistion., I lost my LTE Driver on my T480 When I Upgrated to the new version of windows 1903…. Any help with that! Thanks in advanced

    In 1903 my two file parsers fail to run at all, like Copernic and in Lookeen both showing an error message requiring .net framework v4.0 to be installed, even failing start up (copernic), or erroring every few seconds (Lookeen) until completely stopped. However, the v4.0 framework install aborts, saying it is already included in windows 1903, which contains even a later version 4.8

    Microsoft Office 2016 deactivates and says there is a hardware change after the 1903 Windows update. Then it will no longer activate. There has been no hardware change and the Office product license is valid and activated prior to the 1903 update. When the pre-1903 update image is restored the Office products are activated and work fine. Every time I try the 1903 update the Office products deactivate.

      Same problem here… fix it please, Microsoft!

    This is the worst Windows 10 version ever. Many times when I try to open a program or a browser, the system just hangs, because without me doing anything or having anything open, the system is using 100% of my resources. This isn’t just once in a while. It’s a majority of the time and it’s completely annoying. I think this is my last Windows operating system computer I will ever own. Microsoft is crap and always has been. Since updating to v1903, my sound goes out continuously all day long, I have USB problems I can’t fix, Windows Defender uses way too much of your resources and my system routinely uses 100% of them constantly. You wouldn’t buy a car that needed a tune up every week, so why do we have to put up with an operating system that needs fixing every Wednesday? This is unacceptable and never should be allowed. No business should be allowed to bind you with the contractual agreements that Microsoft has, charge you for a system that is never 100% and get away with it. The only reason Windows 10 was given away for free was because Microsoft owed the DOJ Billions of $$ from laws suits and made a system for them that allows them to spy on the public at will. Two countries have already sued Microsoft for just that reason.

    One of my PCs has the “your device isn’t quite ready for [1903]” message.

    It’s good that Microsoft has a link outlining the issues, but this doesn’t address what exactly is not compatible on my PC. Why should I have to take a guess at the problem? Probably Microsoft wants to handle the upgrade process transparently themselves once the OEMs have updated their drivers, but I’d still like to know.

    Adobe Reader DC no longer works after update to 1903. Have tried evrything and nothing fixes it.

    Wifi slowness issues are atrocious. Only fix we have found to work so far

    Start windows powershell as administrator

    Enter command get-netadapter to make sure you have the right spelling of the wifi adapter. Some are Wi Fi some are Wi-Fi

    Enter the disable-netadapterrsc –name Wi-Fi

    After August update, HD sound is now disable via HDMI. What idiots.

  66. Paul Smith said on August 16, 2019 at 5:03 pm

    Worst update ever. reste all my specific windows settings to default, all sound settings messed up, turned off System protection, activated superfetch and Prefetch, reset all my power settings, and loads loads more.

    been an absolute nightmare trying to remember everything I had previously set and going through them all and setting them back up

    Updated from 1803 to 1903. Result: AMD Radeon graphics HD4250 will no longer display videos. Same driver worked in 1803 though.

  68. Mike Swanson said on August 17, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    It removed my Chrome and Firefox… It totally uninstalled them. They are no longer in the Programs folder. I am checking now which other applications are uninstalled. I am very very upset.
