While Microsoft's Windows Phone has been on life support for several years now, the company this week formally acknowledged the death of the marginally-popular handset. Mainstream support for both the services ended on October 9, 2012.
Users should apply the Cumulative Updates only and not the Delta updates. "Windows 10 was designed as a service, whereby feature updates are required a couple times a year".
Microsoft said users of Windows 10 Home, Pro, Education, and Enterprise should check to see what version their devices are running. And during the recent Windows 10 Fall Creators Update development phase, it was similarly made clear that mobile is no longer a serious focus for the Redmond-based giant. This one, WorkingHardinIT.Work, steps through using DISM (the Deployment Image Servicing and Management command-line tool) to remove the updates.
"Patch diffing is a common technique of comparing two binary builds of the same code - a known-vulnerable one and one containing a security fix", Jurczyk said. Application restrictions can be configured by either the ApplicationManagement CSP or AppLocker CSP.
One reason that has come up so far is that the mandatory update often fails on systems with support for USB Type-C Connector System Software Interface (USCI).it is suggested to go into the system BIOS and disable UCSI before to applying the updates. Meanwhile, the company does not announce plans for future version of the operating system and future devices. For example, the widespread WannaCry ransomware attack earlier this year largely affected systems running older versions of Windows that are no longer supported with updates from Microsoft.
Microsoft promises that the SDK will make it easier for developers to build Windows apps that run on virtual and augmented reality headsets, that look and feel better to use, and that are easier for users download, install and update. "Paid money. wrote apps 4 them. but volume of users is too low for most companies to invest". After automatic installation of last night's security updates, the security patch, KB4041676, appears to be failing for quite a few people.
