Microsoft releases Windows 10 builds 18363.592, 17763.973 – here’s what’s new

Today is the second Tuesday of the month, making it Patch Tuesday. That means that Microsoft is releasing new updates for all supported versions of Windows. For Windows 10, that includes all versions except for version 1511.

If you're on the latest versions of Windows 10, versions 1909 or 1903, you'll get KB4528760, bringing the build number to 18363.592 or 18362.592, respectively. You can manually download it here, and these are the highlights:

  • Updates to improve security when storing and managing files.
  • Updates to improve security when using input devices such as a mouse, keyboard, or stylus.

Here's the full list of fixes:

  • Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Management, Windows Cryptography, Windows Storage and Filesystems, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, and Windows Server.

Those on Windows 10 version 1809 will get KB4534273, bringing the build number to 17763.973. You can manually download it here, and it has the same highlights and fixes as the update for version 1909, although there are a few known issues:

Symptom Workaround
Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

Do one of the following:

  • Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.
  • Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

After installing KB4493509, devices with some Asian language packs installed may receive the error, "0x800f0982 – PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND."
  1. Uninstall and reinstall any recently added language packs. For instructions, see Manage the input and display language settings in Windows 10.
  2. Select Check for Updates and install the April 2019 Cumulative Update. For instructions, see Update Windows 10.

Note If reinstalling the language pack does not mitigate the issue, reset your PC as follows:

  1. Go to the Settings app > Recovery.
  2. Select Get Started under the Reset this PC recovery option.
  3. Select Keep my Files.

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.

To mitigate this issue, set the keyboard language to English during user creation or use a Microsoft Account to complete OOBE. You can set the keyboard language back to your preferred language after user creation. Once the OOBE is done and you are at the desktop, you can rename the current user using these instructions. If you prefer to create a new local user, see KB4026923.
