Windows 10 Build 17134.83 Cumulative Update released and here’s what’s new in it
You may have gotten the KB4338548 Windows Update on your computer. This update bumps the version number of the operating system from Build 17134.81 to Windows 10 Build 17134.83.
So, what’s new in the Windows 10 Build 17134.83 Cumulative Update? As you may have guessed from the very slight change in the build number which indicates there are not many fixes, this is not a very important update, at least for most users. In fact the new update contains a single fix, which targets a very specific audience. The only thing that this Windows Update addresses, is an issue which is related to the Intuit QuickBooks Desktop application.
What’s new in the update?
According to the official summary posted for the KB4338548 Windows Update, QuickBooks did not run in multi-user mode on Windows 10 version 1803. That is the Windows 10 April Update, of course. The issue not only affected Intuit QuickBooks Desktop 2018 users, but also users running the 2017 version of the program.
The error message displayed for affected users was “Windows could not start the QuickBooksDBXX service on Local Computer.” The error code was 193:0xc1.
To manually check for the update on your computer, you need to open the Settings app, either from the Start Menu or press the Windows + I key combo, and then navigate to Update and Security > Check for updates.
If you use the Intuit application, but don’t find the update available, you can still manually download the KB4338548 Windows Update from the Microsoft Update Catalog webpage and install it on your computer right now. Despite containing just a single fix, it is a rather large update ranging from 214MB to 479MB for Windows 10 x86, X64 and ARM 64 PCs, and at 432MB for Windows Server 2016.
The update may not be available, if it has already been installed on your computer. You can verify that by using our guide to know how to find the Windows 10 version and build number on your PC. If the number is Windows 10 Build 17134.83, you don’t have anything to worry about. Microsoft says that it is not aware of any issues with the update, but you should know better by now.
The monthly security update for Windows 10, will arrive next week on Patch Tuesday (June 12th, 2018), and we expect a lot more fixes in it, including security patches. It is likely that Microsoft decided to roll out the fix for Intuit Quickbooks a week earlier, to check for any possible issues, that can be fixed in next week’s update.
