Win10 patch 17763.404

IF you find, after installation, your sound in games is gone but desktop sound is still good...

...check the Sound properties in CP and make sure Speakers are still default (output) device - for some reason this patch alters the speakers into default *comm* device output (or similar). Once fixed sound in games is back.

Re: Win10 patch 17763.404

although the KB4490481 (build 17763.404) update fixes the sound problem, it seems to cause a new problem; a BSOD "system service exception" error on some systems running Win10 v1809

Re: Win10 patch 17763.404

Today it happened again - games no sound due to wrong default speaker setting
