It turns out that there is one more problem packed in the Windows 10 cumulative update series released this month. Update KB4284835 was launched with just one known issue. Microsoft noted in the official announcement that some of the users who will be running Windows 10 version 1803 might be faced with the error that says “An invalid argument was supplied” when they try to access files or run programs from a shared folder using the SMBv1 protocol.

Microsoft adds a new issues on the official KB page

The tech giant updated the page with a brand new found issue, and the info says that Microsoft Edge browser could face some errors after users install the June 2018 patches. It seems that the browser might stop working correctly when it starts the download of a font from a problematic URL.

Microsoft Edge may stop working when it initializes the download of a font from a malformed (not RFC compliant) URL.

The company also said that a fix is already in the works at the moment and users should not panic as Microsoft promised not to wait until the next Patch Tuesday in July to roll out the patch. They will release it to the public when it’s ready, and this will take place by the end of June.

KB4284835 install problems

Microsoft listed only two issues affecting this cumulative update, but unfortunately, users keep finding more installation-related bugs. For instance, many Windows 10 April Update systems are getting the same update all over again even if users have installed it already. On the other hand, many users are still struggling to install the patch.

A fix is in the works and Microsoft will roll it out later this month.
