I got all excited a moment ago and wrote that I had was finishing the ‘final’ article in a series of quick cumulative update articles. Unfortunately, I spoke too soon. However, I think cumulative update KB4467682 will be the last one of today’s articles reflecting Microsoft’s cumulative update.
Please note that cumulative update KB4467682 applies to Windows 10 version 1803. There have been four updates released today for different versions of Windows 10. When updating, Microsoft recommends updating through the Settings app. With so many version updates around, this is a good piece of advice.
Windows 10 KB4467682 brings a plethora of fixes
- Addresses an issue that prevents the deletion of word spellings from the Microsoft Office dictionary using settings.
- Addresses time zone changes for Russian and Moroccan daylight standard time.

- Addresses an issue that prevents some users from connecting to some older devices, such as printers, over Wi-Fi because of the introduction of multicast DNS (mDNS).
As per usual, if you or your machine has installed any of the fixes above at an earlier date, they will be ignored when installing cumulative update KB4467682.
Known issues in this update
After you install the update, instantiation of SqlConnection can throw an exception.
Also, some users may not be able to use the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player when playing specific files.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
How to download KB4467682
As I said above, with so many version updates being released, knowing which one to download is tricky. Microsoft recommends downloading all updates through the settings app, and if you are not an advanced user, I would definitely follow this advice. To download and install this update, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and select Check for updates.
However, for those of you who like going down the stand-alone route, the package for cumulative update KB4467682 is available from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Please check out this support page as well.
