March 'Patch Tuesday' updates now rolling out to Windows 10

Right on time, Microsoft is shipping its latest batch of "Patch Tuesday" updates for supported versions of Windows 10. The cumulative updates, which deliver security improvements and bug fixes, are now rolling out for Windows 10 PCs on the October 2018 Update and older.

Here's what's fixed for PCs on the October 2018 Update with KB4489899 (build 17763.379):

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft HoloLens with tracking and device calibration that has affected some users. You may notice improvement 10-15 minutes after installing this update, but we recommend resetting the holograms for best results.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause users to receive "Error 1309" while installing or uninstalling certain types of MSI and MSP files.
  • Addresses an issue that may degrade graphics and mouse performance with desktop gaming when playing certain games, such as Destiny 2, after installing KB4482887.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Shell, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers, Windows Server, Windows Linux, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows, and Windows Fundamentals.

If your PC is still on the April 2018 Update, you'll snag KB4489868 (build 17134.648) with the following two fixes:

  • Addresses an issue that may cause users to receive "Error 1309" while installing or uninstalling certain types of MSI and MSP files.
  • Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Shell, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Hyper-V, Windows Server, Windows Linux, Window Kernel, Windows MSXML, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

The updates rolling out for the Fall Creators Update and Creators Update contains a similar set of fixes as the April 2018 Update, but you can check out the full rundown at Microsoft's support site.
