We thought that Microsoft is finished with the Threshold 2 Update, and that the company changed its focus to the next major update for Windows 10, Redstone. But, it appears that Microsoft isn’t done when with the November Update yet, as the new Cumulative update was delivered today.
The update goes by the code of KB3124200, and it pushes Windows 10’s version number to 10586.36, the same one as on Windows 10 Mobile. This update is part of Microsoft’s plan to deliver the same Windows 10 version number on all devices.
If you’re into Windows 10, you probably know that Microsoft doesn’t provide release notes for cumulative updates, which is also the case with today’s KB3124200. The company does mention that the update brings improvements to the operating system, but that’s a standard procedure.
Cumulative Update KB3124200 Delivered Only to PCs Running Windows 10 November Update
As we told you, this update is related to Windows 10 November Update, so unless you installed it on your computer, you won’t receive KB3214200 update, either.
“This update offers improved functionality for Windows 10 Version 1511. Windows 10 Version 1511 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see 3116900). If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer,” Microsoft explains on the KB page.
Cumulative updates are part of Microsoft’s plan to deliver Windows as a Service, and are released mainly to bring some improvements to the system.
The only problem with this kind of updates is that we have a very little info about them. We know they bring certain changes and improvements, but we don’t know what exactly are these improvements, as Microsoft doesn’t provide any details.
A lot of users don’t like this Microsoft’s approach, as they request from Microsoft to change the current policy, but the company doesn’t seem to pay attention to complaints.
Install issues with KB3124200
The most recent cumulative update KB3124200 is fresh but there are already users who complain that it will not install on their Windows 10 devices. So far, it seems that there are only install issues being reported for this specific update, as no other problems have been appearing so far.
