Windows 11 is all the rage right now, with Microsoft dropping features and improvements for this latest operating system outside of the annual update cadence. But, if you still haven’t upgraded to Windows 11 or can’t due to minimum system requirements or any other reason, Windows maker also continues to provide updates for Windows 10 .
Microsoft has released KB5010415 for new versions of Windows 10. Build 19042.1566 is available for 20H2, 19043.1566 for 21H1, and 19044.1566 for 21H2. Note that this is a non-security “Preview” release, which means that it is not a mandatory update and you do not have to install it before next month’s Patch Tuesday update.

Addresses an issue that occurs when Windows Server 2016 runs as a Terminal Server using certain cloud computing Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDIs).

- Fixes a memory leak in the wmipicmp.dll module that causes many false alarms in the System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) data center monitoring system.
- Addresses an issue that causes the Remote Desktop Service (RDS) server to become unstable when the number of connected users exceeds 100. This prevents you from accessing applications published using RDS on Windows Server 2019.
- Addresses an issue that returns an error message when searching for a domain or organizational unit (OU). This issue occurs due to improper memory reset.
- Addresses an issue that prevents the Group Policy Management Console from working after it closes. The system logs Application Error Event ID 1000 and error 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION); the faulty module is GPOAdmin.dll.

- Fixes an issue that prevents ShellWindows() to return the Internet Explorer object when iexplore.exe runs in the context of Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode.

- Addresses an issue that causes certificate enrollment to fail with the error message “0x800700a0 (ERROR _BAD_ARGUMENTS)”.

- Introduces support for Windows Hello for Business Cloud Trust. This is a new deployment model for Windows Hello for Business hybrid deployments. It uses the same technology and deployment steps that support on-premises single sign-on (SSO) for Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) security keys. Cloud Trust removes public key infrastructure (PKI) requirements for Windows deployment and simplifies the Windows Hello for Business deployment experience.
- Addresses an issue that could cause BitLocker to corrupt virtual machine (VM) system files if you expand the BitLocker partition while the VM is offline.
- Addresses a remaining issue that could cause the Get-TPM PowerShell command fails when trying to report Trusted Platform Module (TPM) information. The command fails with error “0x80090011 Microsoft.Tpm.Commands.TpmWmiException,Microsoft.Tpm.Commands.GetTpmCommand”.

- Addresses an issue that occurs when you attempt to write a Service Principal Name (SPN) alias (such as www/FOO) and HOST/FOO already exists on another object. If the RIGHT_DS_WRITE_PROPERTY is on the SPN attribute of the colliding object, you receive an “Access Denied” error.
- Addresses an issue that prevents administrators and content owners from opening expired Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) content.
- Addresses an issue that disconnects offline files on the network drive after restarting the operating system and logging in. This issue occurs if the Distributed File System (DFS) path is mapped to the network drive.

- Addresses an issue that prevents Work Folder sync from picking up error code 0x80c80003, “The server is currently busy” on the client. This problem occurs even when the HTTP request queue on the server does not indicate a load.
