Microsoft’s employees will have a few days to relax after the hard work they’ve done lately, but all these efforts are worthwhile, because customers are happy and Windows gets improvements.
So, the latest Windows 10 Insider Build has received cumulative update KB3206309, while KB3213522 was brought to the current stable Anniversary Update version of Windows 10.
Microsoft hasn’t published the support page for KB3206309, but the description of the installed update says that “A security issue has been identified in a Microsoft software product that could affect your system. You can help protect your system by installing this update from Microsoft. For a complete listing of the issues that are included in this update, see the associated Microsoft Knowledge Base article. After you install this update, you may have to restart your system.”
When it comes to KB3213522, the Knowledge Base support article reveals that “This update fixes an issue that was introduced in the December 13, 2016 release (KB3206632) in which the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) installation takes more time than expected, and the installation may fail on the initial attempt.” This update replaces KB3206632, which was released nine days ago, and which was listed on the Windows 10 version 1607 update history page. It seems that KB3213522 hasn’t been listed on this page yet and it’s not available through Windows Update, either.
However, it can be found on the Microsoft Update Catalog website, where you will be able to download the 32-bit version (946Mb) or the 64-bit version (508Mb).
In parallel, the Creators Update testers have just received the ISO download of the final Windows 10 Redstone 2 testing build, so Insiders are able to grab Build 14986 that was released on December 7 to Fast Ring testers and December 14 to Slow Ring Insiders.
Creators Update will arrive in early 2017 with new features such as 3D content in Paint and PowerPoint, built-in broadcasting, enhanced security across devices and many more.
