Microsoft adds another option to its complex Windows 10 patching story

Microsoft adds another option to its complex Windows 10 patching story

With nearly two years of Windows 10 behind us, we can take a look at what's improved, what needs work, and where Microsoft can go from here. Now the company has offered some details about the update's rollout and said you shouldn't manually install the update via the Windows 10 Update Assistant.

With the new "Windows as a Service" model that came with Windows 10 in July 2015, more small updates seem like the proper method for servicing Windows, but Microsoft is definitely pulled between the consumer and business groups that they serve. For those where the device drivers are already up to date, uninstall the device and continue with the Windows update.

After administering careful and gradual adoption of the latest update to its desktop OS, Microsoft would be proud today that within the first month of the release of Windows 10 Creators Update, it is now running on more than 10 percent of Windows-powered machines around the world. If you are on one of these unsupported devices and in the Fast or Slow ring, you will need to switch to the Release Preview ring via Settings Update & security Windows Insider Program.

According to Neihaus, it is customer feedback that has driven this decision. (I've asked Microsoft just to be sure; no word back yet.) These combined security and non-security Cumulative Updates will be designated as "Security Updates" in Configuration Manager and WSUS. With these changes, we will routinely offer one (or sometimes more than one) additional update each month. This enables the organization to ensure that these new non-security fixes work well, prior to those same fixes being included in the next "Update Tuesday" cumulative update which will be deployed throughout the organization.

State Department promotion of Trump's Mar-a-Lago draws fire
Ron Wyden (D-OR) wrote on Twitter, as he said he would like to know more about why Mar-a-Lago is getting publicity from the U.S. Critics complained that resources were being used to tout the for-profit club, which Trump refers to as the Winter White House.


We decide what to block based on user impact, and blocking issues are a high priority for us to address as quickly as possible. As for mobile devices, it is important to, first of all, that 60 percent of Microsoft phones will be getting the Creators Update, and 40 percent will not.

Deploy them on a subset of devices, for instance for testing.

- Don't deploy them at all. This will contain all the non-security fixes released for a given version.
