KB4493509 Windows 10 1809 Patch Tuesday Update Details
- The release of KB44939509 deals with an issue that occurs when you enable per font end-user-defined characters (EUDC). The system will stop working and a blue screen will appear at startup. However, this is not a common setting in non-Asian regions.
- Microsoft and the team focus on another problem that may lead apps that use MSXML6 to stop responding if an exception was thrown during node operations.
- The list of issue that the team addresses continues with the Group Policy Editor as well. The Group Policy editor fails to respond while you make an attempt to edit a Group Policy Object (in short GPO) that contains Group Policy Preferences (viz. GPP) for Internet Explorer 10 Internet settings.
- KB4493509 Windows 10 1809 also addresses an issue that may cause authentication issues. It happens for Internet Explorer 11 and other applications as well that use WININET.DLL. Basically, this occurs when two or more people use the same user account. It happens when they use the same account for multiple, concurrent login sessions on the same Windows Server machine, including “Remote Desktop Protocol” (aka RDP) and “Terminal Server” logons.
- Furthermore, KB4493509 carries wide range of security updates to Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Server, the Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows Kernel, Windows Input and Composition, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows Virtualization, Windows MSXML, Windows SQL components, and Microsoft Edge.

Post-installation there may be issues using the Preboot Execution Environment (viz. PXE) to start a device from a Windows Deployment Services (or WDS) server configured to use Variable Window Extension. This may eventually cause the connection to the WDS server to discontinue prematurely while making an attempt to download the image. However, this problem will not affect clients or devices that are not using the “Variable Window Extension”.
To reduce the problem, you need to disable the “Variable Window Extension” on WDS server through one of the following options:
Open an elevated Command Prompt and provide the below syntax –
Wdsutil /Set-TransportServer /EnableTftpVariableWindowExtension:No
Use the “Windows Deployment Services” UI.
- Get access to Windows Deployment Services from Windows Administrative Tools.
- Expand Servers and execute a right-click on WDS server.
- Launch its properties and on the TFTP tab, clear the box namely “Enable Variable Window Extension”.
Set the below-given registry value to 0.
After successfully disabling the Variable Window Extension, you should reboot the WDSServer service.
In an upcoming release, Microsoft will come up with a resolution.
