  • Addresses issue that causes delays when switching keyboard languages using Alt+Shift.
  • Addresses issue where surround sound audio endpoints reverted to stereo after restarting.
  • Improves and reduces conditions where certain Bluetooth keyboards drop keys during reconnection scenarios.
  • Corrects mouse delays for devices that incorrectly report the battery level status.
  • Addresses issue where MMC application snap-ins—such as Services, Local Policy Admin, and Printer Management—fail to run when Windows Defender Application Control (Device Guard) is turned on. The error is “Object doesn’t support this property or method”.
  • Prevents use of the Pre-production Onesettings endpoint for Windows Setup when test signing is enabled.
  • Addresses issue where installations of Windows Server, version 1709 are not automatically activated using the Automated Virtual Machine Activation (AVMA) feature on Hyper-V hosts that have been activated.
  • Addresses issue with the Auto-register Inbox templates feature for UEV where the Scheduled Task didn’t have the proper trigger.
  • Addresses issue where the App-V client didn’t read the policy for SyncOnBatteriesEnabled when the policy was set using a Group Policy Object (GPO).
  • Addresses issue where the Supported On field for the Enable App-V Client policy is blank in the Group Policy editor.
  • Addresses issue where the user’s hive data in the registry is not maintained correctly when some App-V packages belong to the connection group.
  • Provides additional logging for administrators to take action, such as picking a proper configuration for their App-V package, when there are multiple configuration files for a single package.
  • Addresses issue with App-V packages that aren’t compatible with registry virtualization using kernel containers.

  • Hi Kapil,
    Have been trying to install KB4013429 in windows 10 Pro , OS version 1607 for the last three days and after eight unsuccessful tries, I have given up. Very irritating, it reaches 99% installing and would”nt complete the updates undoing changes and of course reverting to roll back the install of KB4013429.
    I have tried various troubleshooters including window 10 troubleshooter to no avail, so I decided to turn OFF
    windows update. No viruses or malware on the system.

    Any help to fix this problem would be much appreciated. Thanks. Nlthcn.
