Microsoft releases KB4497935 for Windows 10 version 1903 (major fixes)

Microsoft released KB4497935 to the Release Preview Ring and the Slow Ring on May 24, 2019. The cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1903 fixes several known issues in the operating system including some that prevented systems from being upgraded to that version of Windows 10.

Update: Microsoft released the update to the Stable channel.

A new Servicing Stack Update, KB4502374, has been released as well. Administrators who install the updates manually need to make sure that they install the Servicing Stack Update before they install the new cumulative update.

The update has not been released yet for Stable clients but downloads are available on third-party sites such as Deskmodder. We recommend that you wait with the installation unless it is really critical to get the update as early as possible.

The stable release is unknown at this point in time. Microsoft could push it out before the June Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 version 1903, or as part of that update.

    Oh MY!!!

    Well glad they fixed some of these issues especially considering they probably want to start pushing out the upgrade to everyone soon. I just find 1903 a pretty big “meh” in terms of how it looks. The light theme sort of brings out the flat uninspiring look of the icon’s. Reminds me of a cheap Chrome OS look in some ways. I started noticing that some Linux desktop’s looked better now then Windows 10. Such a shame volunteers can do a better UI then Microsoft developers in terms of design flare.

    Nice they fixed a lot of these issues so now I guess they can push out the upgrade. Runs OK on a older notebook I have. Don’t like the light theme because it brings out those cheap looking Chrome OS icon’s in task bar. Flat design just not my favorite and I have to say some of the Linux desktop interfaces look better these days.

    it also apparently fixes the issue of the immersive settings app crashing when users select apps & features within the first 10+ minutes of windows startup.

    This morning I came back to 1809 : too many regressions. There always pb with semestrial upgrades.
    I hate Windows 10
    My wife’s computer will remain in Windows 7. Yep.

    At the end of March I bought a new desktop with Windows 10, 1803, Home edition. One day later it was upgraded to version 1809. This week I installed version 1903, which was entirely my fault. The promised blessings were much more important for me as using a bit of common sense.

    So three editions of Windows 10 in about seven weeks. This is an exciting experience after Windows 7. Living on the fast lane instead of that boring and outdated Windows 7.

    As a extra bonus I do have various problems with 1903, and it auto magically made a new D partition which consists of a brand new installed CD Rom station, containing a fully armored rescue image.

    So yes, Windows 10 is big improvement over Windows 7 for me. Much more exciting. And it even changes my hardware for free.

    In fact it is so exciting that I am tempted to restart my computer multiple times a day to experience old problems solved and new problems arriving.

    The only pity is that One Drive was not installed on my OEM version and even now it is nowhere on my desktop, only a empty One Drive folder.

    Which is a shame because I really love One Drive slowing down my computer and having all of my files on MS servers.

    What I will do…
    I will wait to June 11th and then I will download 1903 image from MS. I´d like to see (and I hope) that then all bugs should been fixed. If so, I´ll download the image and will install it then. Be patience, guys.

    2019-5 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1903 for X64- based Systems (KB4497935) (3) Error: When installing this 19-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1903 for x64-based Systems (KB4497935), the system hangs with a never ending circle of dots on restarting.

    1. Francois said on May 26, 2019 at 11:31 pm

      Got the same issue of never ending circle on 2 machines. have to do system restore to enable proper boot again. Uninstalled KB4497935 and set restart at 7 days in future to give me time to research a solution.

      1. Brian said on May 29, 2019 at 9:48 pm

        Agreed – I have been having the same problem as well with this most recent update.

    Still on the “no known issues” mantra, modern Microsoft.

    Two major ISO upgrades are the hell themselves! I really hate these both upgrades! :(

    Il KB4497935 non ha risolto affatto il problema della luce notturna, io ho 3 notebook: un Asus, un HP OMEN e un Samsung Ativ book, Bene su tutti e tre i notebook nonostante ho aggiornato con il KB4497935, la luce notturna all’accensione del pc non funziona come prima e come prima per farla funzionare devo riavviare il notebook. NON HANNO RISOLTO UN BEL NULLA!!!

    Article says “The stable release is unknown at this point in time. Microsoft could push it out before the June Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 version 1903, or as part of that update.”

    For Windows 10 1903 x64 Home, at 20:30 today I used WU to install SSU KB4498523 and Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18362.145] KB4497935. I had to manually check for and install KB4497935 after its expected restarts which in a second or two said PC was up to date and now the history is correct.
