Cumulative Update KB3074674 For Windows 10 Build 10240 Includes These Bug Fixes


Last week, Microsoft released Cumulative Security Update for Windows 10 KB3074674 . This security update resolves a vulnerability in Windows that could allow elevation of privilege if the Windows Installer service incorrectly runs custom action scripts. Additionally, this update includes non-security-related changes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 through new features and improvements. Some people were interested in knowing the non-security-related changes. You can read it below.

TFS work item number Area Description
3513346 App deployment We made changes to the licensing process for preinstalled apps to ensure that those apps can continue to be run after a user updates those apps and then refreshes or resets a Windows 10 device.
3485881 Battery We implemented a change in the audio player’s handling of timers to ensure the proper amount of battery usage after a user puts a device into standby or hibernation mode.
3592057 Connectivity We separated the component ID for the Wi-Fi Network Manager from the Windows Connection Manager (WCM) component ID during always on, always connected (AOAC) reference attributions to make the debugging and fixing of power-related issues easier.
3428049 Media We made reliability improvements to ensure that the Movies & TV app can resume the video playback of protected content successfully if the app had been previously suspended while the protected content was playing.
3227030 Media We implemented changes to ensure that the casting of online content (for example, casting to a Miracast receiver) works successfully while the network is busy with device lookup.
3415269 Miracast We made changes to ensure that video playback remains smooth if a user is playing hardware digital rights management (DRM) protected content on a popular streaming player web site in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, and then the user makes a Miracast connection to play the protected content on another device without stopping the playback.
3256299 Miracast We made changes to devices that use a Miracast companion driver to ensure that Miracast connections occur quickly and without any dropped frames.
3458899 Push-button reset We made changes to ensure that a push-button reset has enough memory to succeed on a device that has multiple languages installed.
3406833 Text input We implemented changes on tablet-style devices to ensure that the onscreen keyboard is available whenever necessary (for example, to create a PIN) after a user joins a cloud domain (for example, to log on to a work or school account) and then completes an out-of-box experience (OOBE).
