Windows 10 Update

It’s Tuesday and Windows 10 is back with a brand new update. Windows 10 Preview Build 18361 is now available for Windows Insiders on the Fast Ring. 

It seems like Microsoft is all set to officially launch the operating system to the general public next month. The update is named as ‘April 2019 Update’.

This update comes with the two fixes as it fixed the bugs with the VM installation and Unexpected BitLocker prompts.

Windows 10 19H1 build 18361 improvements and fixes

Windows 10 19H1 build 18361 has been released to fix two major issues introduced in the previous versions.

1. VM installation bug fix

Previously, the users were experiencing an issue that was restricting them to update or install the Virtual Machines on Windows Insider Preview builds. The users had to see the Windows logo stuck on a black screen. This issue has been fixed in the latest release.

2. Unexpected BitLocker prompts bug fix

Few insiders reported that they were not able to encrypt certain drives and they had to face the unexpected BitLocker prompts. Microsoft has fixed this bug in the Windows 10 19H1 build 18361.

Windows 10 build 18361 Known Issues

Microsoft has acknowledged a bunch of known issues in the recent update.

1. Build 18356 App update bug

The systems that are running Windows 10 build 18356+ are experiencing problems during the automatic installation of the Microsoft Store app.

Microsoft suggests a temporary workaround to the problem suggesting the users that they can use the Microsoft Storeapp to manually check and install the updates. They just need to open the app and navigate to “…” >> Downloads and updates>> Get updates. 

2. Game launch issues

This update fails to resolve the game launch bug that has been reported for the past few months. The users experienced the bugcheck (GSOD) as soon as the users tried to launch their favourite games with the help of the anti-cheat software.

3. Realtek SD card readers fail to work

Microsoft is still investigating the issue that is affecting the functionality of a few Realtek SD card readers.

4. Creative X-Fi sound cards fail to work

The tech giant plans to partner with Creative to fix the functionality issues related to the Creative X-Fi sound cards.

Windows 10 19H1 build 18361 is expected to be rolled out to the users in the next month. At the time of writing this article, the Slow Ring Windows Insiders can also install the update Windows 10 19H1 build 18356.16.

However, the installation will not bring any new features because the various OS components have not been updated in this build.
