July 24, 2018—KB4338827 (OS Build 15063.1235)

Applies to: Windows 10, version 1703

Improvements and fixes


This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Addresses additional issues with updated time zone information. 
  • Changes the music metadata service provider used by Windows Media Player. 
  • Addresses an issue in which some characters were not rendered correctly using the Meiryo font in vertical writing mode. 
  • Addresses an issue that may cause the operating system to stop responding when transitioning from Sleep to Hibernation. 
  • Addresses an issue in which the memory usage of LSASS continues to grow until it is necessary to restart the system. 
  • Addresses an issue that may cause dual-signed files to report a failure when they should report success. This occurs when running Windows Defender Application Control in audit mode. 
  • Addresses an issue that causes SQL Server memory usage to grow over time when encrypting data using a symmetric key that has a certificate. Then, you execute queries that open and close the symmetric key in a recursive loop. 
  • Addresses an issue that prevents printing on a 64-bit OS when 32-bit applications impersonate other users (typically by calling LogonUser). This issue occurs after installing monthly updates starting with KB4034681, released in August 2017. To resolve the issue for the affected applications, install this update, and then do one of the following:
    • Use Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit to globally enable the Splwow64Compat App Compat Shim.
    • Use the following registry setting, and then restart the 32-bit application: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print Setting: Splwow64Compat

Type: DWORD

Value1: 1     

  • Addresses an issue in which Wi-Fi credentials must be entered each time a device restarts and tries to reconnect to Wi-Fi using Group Policy-distributed Preferred Network Profiles.
  • Addresses an issue in which using an invalid password in a wireless PEAP environment that has SSO enabled causes the submission of two authentication requests with the invalid password. The excess authentication request may cause premature account lockouts in environments with low account lockout thresholds. To enable the changes, add the new registry key, “DisableAuthRetry” (Dword) on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RasMan\PPP\EAP\26 using regedit, and set it to 1.
  • Addresses an issue in which Wi-Fi credentials must be entered each time a device restarts and tries to reconnect to Wi-Fi using Group Policy-distributed Preferred Network Profiles.
  • Addresses an issue in which not all network printers are connected after a user logs on. The HKEY_USERS\User\Printers\Connections Key shows the correct network printers for the affected user. However, the list of network printers from this registry key is not populated in any app, including Microsoft Notepad or Devices and Printers. Printers may disappear or become non-functional.

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