Windows 10 KB4056254

If you’re wondering that KB4056254 is, this article will shed some light on this recent Windows 10 update. Microsoft has been rolling out quite a large number of updates lately, so there’s no surprise that another one is pending on the Windows Update list.

Windows 10 KB4056254 is actually an update that improves the operating system’s update install process so that users can seamlessly install the latest patches.

Here’s Microsoft official update description as it is available on KB4056254’s Support Page.

This update includes a background service for update facilitation in Windows 10 Version 1507 and later versions (build 10240 and later builds).
This update includes files and resources that make sure that operating system updates are installed seamlessly and that improve the reliability and security of Windows 10.

Keep in mind that Microsoft deploys this update only to certain builds of Windows 10. Computers that are running the OS versions targeted by KB4056254 will automatically get this update downloaded and installed.

If the update is not available on your list of pending updates, this simply means that is it not required by your OS version.

Microsoft is not aware of any issues affecting KB4056254, so the whole install process should go smoothly. Windows 10 users haven’t reported any bugs either.

  • I’m getting the following error when I look under the Windows Updates section of Settings:

    Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB4056254)
    Download error – 0x8024a206

    How can this be resolved?

  • This update gives the Windows Update service the right to Install updates and force reboots in the middle of the day. It has caused two of my clients so far to lose their ability to work at 3 PM on a weekday because it put up a message on their screen saying “Your computer will reboot in 15 minutes. Please save your work.”

    The only way to stop it is to run a command prompt and use the command shutdown.exe -a, which most regular users do not know to do.
