This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Addresses an issue in Microsoft Edge with using the drag-and-drop feature to upload folders from the Windows desktop to a file hosting service website, such as Microsoft OneDrive. In some scenarios, files contained in the folders fail to upload, with possibly no error reported on the web page to the user.
  • Addresses an issue that degrades Internet Explorer performance when you use roaming profiles or you don't use the Microsoft Compatibility List.
  • Addresses updated time zone information for Fiji.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Moroccan daylight standard time.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Russian daylight standard time.
  • Addresses an issue that causes display settings to stop working when changing a multi-monitor configuration.
  • Addresses an issue that displays a black screen on some servers when waking a display from sleep.
  • Addresses an issue with long delays in taking a photo when using the Camera app in certain lighting conditions.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents live TV Hulu content from playing in Microsoft Edge; instead, a black screen appears.
  • Addresses an issue that stops Bluetooth® headsets from receiving audio input after several minutes of listening.
  • Addresses an issue that causes the Brightness slider preference to be reset to 50% when the device restarts.
  • Addresses an issue with the OEM manufacturing processes when running sysprep /generalize.
  • Addresses an issue with Microsoft Intune that causes devices to be incorrectly marked as not compliant because a firewall incorrectly returns a 'Poor' status. As a result, the affected devices will not receive conditional access compliance approval and may be blocked from access to corporate resources such as email.
  • Addresses a performance issue with vSwitch on network interface cards (NIC) that do not support Large Send Offload (LSO) and Checksum Offload (CSO).
  • Updates the Wi-Fi policy for service set identifier (SSID) filtering to avoid filtering out Wi-Fi Direct devices.
  • Addresses an issue that causes rasman.exe to stop responding.
  • Addresses an issue in which regedit.exe fails to add double null terminator to REG_MULTI_SZvalues in the Windows registry. The missing terminator may prevent services and applications from reading REG_MULTI_SZ values that regedit.exe adds after installing the operating system.
  • Addresses an issue with RemoteApp visibility that may cause the main window to disappear until the user clicks the screen.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents some users from setting Win32 program defaults for certain app and file type combinations using the Open with… command or Settings > Apps >Default apps.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause mapped drives to fail to reconnect after starting and logging onto a Windows device.

This update installed twice for me and now the win-update page behaves fishy at times


It shouldn't have installed twice since Windows Update checks to see what updates you have installed before installing any new updates. At best it would just install what is not installed from previous Updates.

If it installed twice, you may want to run Windows Update Troubleshooter to see if it see anything wrong with your Windows Update feature or shows accurately what you have installed.

On mine, it also shows twice. The first time as a "Failed" installation and the second time as a "Successful" Installation.


The Update troubleshooter did not find any problems..


Are the two updates exactly the same in nomenclature? If so, are you able to uninstall the earliest update that is the same?

If you are able to uninstall the earliest update with the same name. after uninstalling hit the "Check for Updates" again and see if it installs again.

Edit: just saw the image you posted. Are you on the Windows Preview service?  That might explain why you got to same two updates. Maybe one update was for the Preview version and the other update for the regular version of Windows. Just taking a stab here though.

Am not on the Preview Windows program so I not sure how that works as far as Windows Updates goes.


1) Nope no Preview service here

2) This update KB4469342 is not even mentioned on the uninstall page - see attachmentupdate1.jpg


Your right. I just checked my Control Panel installed Windows Updates and it doesn't show it either. Yet it does show up in Windows Settings under Windows Update:

You can always try to restore you computer before the update and try again and see what happens. Either way, billy72  mentioned it happened to him more than once but it is the first time, I myself, have heard of double entries for the same Update being installed.

I would run SFC /Scannow just to make sure your Windows OS is not noticeably corrupted.

EDIT: Just remembered, you do need to install a SERVICE STACK Update first before installing the Update I posted otherwise it wouldn't update correctly if at all. The link is at the bottom of the original post in Orange. But you probably did since the Update installed successfully.


Just yesterday I ran

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth check the situation - all fine!

The Service Stack has been auto installed here b4 that patch hence all should be well..

Now, Service Wednesday has just installed 2 new patches and let's see how's got it with those ones..
