Is there no end to this?! Microsoft has blocked yet another upgrade path to Windows 10 version 1809, more popularly known as the October 2018 Update, as another blocking issue has been discovered.
This newest iteration of the OS has been under siege ever since it was released.
And by the looks of things, the Redmond based technology firm can’t call it a day just yet, as far as issues and problems with this version are concerned.
The company has added yet another issue to the list of known problems, this time with an antimalware solution that is not playing nicely with Windows 10 version 1809. As noted on the update history page, the solution in question is Morphisec.
In fact, it’s not just Morphisec that is causing the OS to bug out like this, but also other products built on that SDK:
“Microsoft and Morphisec have identified an issue on devices that have installed Morphisec Protector or another application that uses the Morphisec Software Development Kit (SDK) including: Cisco AMP for Endpoints. These applications may impact customers’ ability to save Microsoft Office documents.”
No word yet from Morphisec on this, but Microsoft has confirmed that it is working with both Morphisec and Cisco to get the issue resolved.
Technically, Microsoft is not the reason behind this newest problem, but it is nevertheless good to see the company working with the developers to solve the issue.
And as has been the case with other similar bugs like this, the only known workaround for now is uninstalling the affected programs until an updated version is released. Shouldn’t be too long this, and you can expect a resolution soon.
That said, Microsoft has blocked a total of five upgrade paths for Windows 10 version 1809.
Fingers firmly crossed, it stays that way.
