 Highlights

  • Updates an issue that prevents certain screen reader apps from running.

  • Updates an issue that might cause a VPN to fail. 

Improvements and fixes

This non-security update includes quality improvements. Key changes include:

  • Addresses an issue that prevents sorting from working properly when using multiple versions of National Language Support (NLS) sorting.

  • Addresses a performance issue in the MultiByteToWideChar() function that occurs when it is used in a non-English locale.

  • Addresses an issue that fails to properly manage touch input related memory before a user session ends.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Windows to stop working when it uses AppLocker to validate a file that has multiple signatures. The error is 0x3B.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause BitLocker to go into recovery mode after updating the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) firmware. This occurs when the "Interactive logon: Machine account lockout Threshold" policy is set and there were incorrect password attempts.

  • Addresses an issue that prevents certain screen reader apps from running when Hypervisor-protected code integrity (HVCI) is enabled.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Windows to generate many AppLocker or SmartLocker success events in the AppLocker EXE and DLL event channel.

  • Improves the accuracy and efficiency of sensitive data analysis in the Microsoft 365 Endpoint data loss prevention (DLP) Classification Engine.

  • Addresses an access violation issue in HTTP.sys that causes a stop error. This issue only occurs when you enable HTTP tracing or logging.

  • Addresses an issue with the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) VPN service on remote access server (RAS) servers. Periodically, users cannot connect a VPN to the server over the IKE protocol. This issue might start several hours or days after restarting the server or restarting the IKEEXT service. Some users can connect while many others cannot connect because the service is in DoS Protection mode, which limits incoming connection attempts.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause a VPN to fail after renewing a user auto-enrolled certificate. The error message is "There are no more files".

  • Addresses a metadata encoding issue that causes Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) music files to become unplayable if you change their title, artist, or other metadata. For more information, see FLAC encoded music file is corrupted when metadata is edited in Windows Explorer.

  • Addresses an issue that causes Remote Desktop sessions to stop responding while the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is enabled.

  • Addresses an issue with an infinite loop in svchost.exe (TermService) that might cause high CPU usage.

  • Addresses an issue in Adamsync.exe that affects the syncing of large Active Directory subtrees.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause endless replication when you promote a new domain controller and the Active Directory Recycle Bin feature is enabled.

  • Addresses an error that occurs when the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) bind cache is full, and the LDAP client library receives a referral.

  • Addresses an issue that might cause a stop error when you run SmbConnectStress for a prolonged duration.

  • Addresses a redirector stop error that is caused by a race condition that occurs when the system deletes binding objects when connections close.

  • Addresses an issue that might damage the file system of some devices and prevent them from starting up after running chkdsk /f.

  • Addresses an issue that causes the images and text that first appear when you open a RemoteApp to remain on the screen indefinitely.

If you installed earlier updates, only the new fixes contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.

Windows Update Improvements

Microsoft has released an update directly to the Windows Update client to improve reliability. Any device running Windows 10 configured to receive updates automatically from Windows Update, including Enterprise and Pro editions, will be offered the latest Windows 10 feature update based on device compatibility and Windows Update for Business deferral policy. This doesn't apply to long-term servicing editions.

Known issues in this update

Symptom

Workaround

After installing KB4493509, devices with some Asian language packs installed may receive the error, "0x800f0982 - PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND."

  1. Uninstall and reinstall any recently added language packs. For instructions, see Manage the input and display language settings in Windows 10.

  2. Select Check for Updates and install the April 2019 Cumulative Update. For instructions, see Update Windows 10.

Note If reinstalling the language pack does not mitigate the issue, reset your PC as follows:

  1. Go to the Settings app > Recovery.

  2. Select Get Started under the Reset this PC recovery option.

  3. Select Keep my Files.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing KB5001342 or later, the Cluster Service might fail to start because a Cluster Network Driver is not found.

This issue occurs because of an update to the PnP class drivers used by this service.  After about 20 minutes, you should be able to restart your device and not encounter this issue.
For more information about the specific errors, cause, and workaround for this issue, please see KB5003571.
