August Patch Tuesday Updates For Windows 10 Now Live

Microsoft has begun the process of rolling out the August Patch Tuesday updates for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile devices, with these patches now flying off the servers for both operating systems.

While Windows 10 Mobile users will see this listed as the 2017-08 Update for Windows 10 version 1703 for arm-based Phone Devices.

The software titan also has a changelog available here, which shows the full spectrum of fixes that are part of this latest cumulative update:

  • Addressed issue where the policies provisioned using Mobile Device Management (MDM) should take precedence over policies set by provisioning packages.
  • Addressed issue where the Site to Zone Assignment List group policy (GPO) was not set on machines when it was enabled.
  • Addressed issue where the AppLocker rules wizard crashes when selecting accounts.
  • Addressed issue where the primary computer relationship is not determined when you have a disjoint NetBIOS domain name for your DNS Name. This prevents folder redirection and roaming profiles from successfully blocking your profile or redirects folders to a non-primary computer.
  • Addressed issue where an access violation in the Mobile Device Manager Enterprise feature causes stop errors.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows PDF Library, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Server, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Windows Subsystem for Linux, Windows shell, Common Log File System Driver, Internet Explorer, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

The company is nevertheless aware of one issue that it says causes Czech and Arabic languages to switch to English for certain apps, including Edge.

It is currently working on a fix.
