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

Microsoft has received reports that audio in certain games is quieter or different than expected after installing this update. At the request of some of our audio partners, we implemented a compatibility change that enabled certain games to query support and render multi-channel audio. Due to customer feedback, we are reverting this change as some games and some devices are not rendering multi-channel audio as expected. This may result in games sounding different than customers are used to and may have missing channels.

This issue is resolved in KB4517211.

Some Input Method Editor (IME) may become unresponsive or may have high CPU usage. Affected IMEs include Chinese Simplified (ChsIME.EXE) and Chinese Traditional (ChtIME.EXE) with Changjie/Quick keyboard.

Due to security related changes in this update, this issue may occur when the Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service is not configured to its default startup type of Manual. To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the Start button and type “services”.

  2. Open the Services app and locate Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service.

  3. Double-click Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service and select Properties.

  4. Locate Startup type: and change it to Manual.

  5. Select OK.

The TabletInputService service is now in the default configuration and IME should work as expected.

When setting up a new Windows device during the Out of Box Experience (OOBE), you might be unable to create a local user when using Input Method Editor (IME). This issue might affect you if you are using the IME for Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages.

Note This issue does not affect using a Microsoft Account during OOBE.

This issue is resolved in KB4530684.
