Microsoft told us three weeks ago that Win10 Fall Creators Update, chronicle 1709, was prepared for craving deployment. Since then, we’ve seen a early Jan patch yanked since it tight AMD machines. Then, after a initial patch was reinstated, we got dual some-more accumulative updates. In a past 3 weeks.
I theory that’s what Microsoft now means by “Current Branch for Business” and/or “Semi-Annual Channel.”
The latest storm in a story arrived currently with KB 4058258, that brings Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, chronicle 1709, to build 16299.214. It’s headed out a Windows Automatic Update trench right now.
Fixes and resets update-related tools to their “supported” configuration. It restores registry settings, services statuses, report tasks, it clears out hoop space, and launches UpdateAssistant.exe if installed. Mainly it’s meant to pave a approach to accept a latest updates, either peculiarity updates, or underline refurbish to latest Windows 10 version
It’s an MSI package not a unchanging update, doesn’t need a reboot. It has some-more than 12 releases so far.
He goes on to say:
Servicing Stack updates are bundled with accumulative updates in chronicle 1709. You might notice that a 1709 SSU has a renowned chronicle (i.e. 162126.96.36.199), not a general chronicle like other updates before (i.e. 10.0.1.2).
Servicing Stack updates won’t be listed in Windows Update history, though we can find it in Installed Updates
