Windows 10 October 2018 Update released… with some issues still

So Windows 10 October 2018 Update [a.k.a. Redstone 5, a.k.a. v1809] was finally re-released on Tuesday after about 6 weeks when the original version was released before being pulled.

But not surprising, there are some outstanding issues:

  • When on a network, your mapped drives can’t reconnect at login. See KB4471218 for workaround scripts. An update for this won’t be available until 2019.
  • Some users cannot set Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with… command or Settings > Apps > Default apps. [Interesting, as I have something like this in v1709.]
  • Upgrading to v1809 is blocked if you have a AMD Radeon HD2000 and HD4000 series graphics processors. Note that these are unsupported by AMD. Will experience an error in a DLL and performance issues. Microsoft is investigating.
  • When trying to upgrade to v1809 with Trend Micro’s OfficeScan and Worry-Free Business Security software installed, the upgrade is blocked. Trend Micro is to supply a patch.
