Microsoft has recently released two new cumulative updates for the Windows 10 Creators Update OS. These updates are not available for the general public yet. Only the Insiders running the RTM build of the Creators Update will be able to download these two updates through Windows Update.

Windows 10 KB4016251 and KB4016252

More specifically, Windows 10 Creators Update KB4016251 takes the build number to version 15063.13. The update is available for Windows Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview rings. This Cumulative Update includes all the fixes brought by cumulative update 15063.11, as well as two additional fixes.

Microsoft fixed the issue where printer connections from clients running older versions of Windows (V3-XPS-based-drivers) failed to connect to clients running the Windows 10 Creators Update.

The second fix solves the issue where on some devices, the Windows audio device graph isolation would max out CPU utilization. This bug was caused by defective Realtek APOs. This is an excellent piece of news for all Surface Pro 3 owners, as this issue seemed to be prevalent for this Surface model.

Windows 10 Creators Update KB4016252  takes the build number to version 15063.14. The update is available only for Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

Update KB4016252 includes the same fixes from cumulative updates 15063.11 and 15063.13, as well as an additional fix. Microsoft fixed the issue where non-suspendable processes would suspend after waking a device.

Unfortunately, not all Insiders have been able to install KB4016251 on their computers. Some users report that the update process gets stuck at 23%. If you’re experiencing this issue, check out our dedicated article on how to fix update issues on the Surface Pro 3.

I’ve been trying to install the update (I’m in the RP ring) and I keep freezing at 23% while rebooting without fail. No idea how to fix this.

As a quick reminder, Windows 10 users can upgrade to the Creators Update starting on April 5. All you need to do is download Microsoft’s Update Assistant and follow the on-screen instructions. Microsoft will roll out the Creators Update OS to the general public starting on April 11. The pack will include all the updates released prior to this date.
