Microsoft is blocking Windows 10 October Update




due to problems with Intel drivers
Microsoft has resumed the distribution of Windows 10 October Update for some users. The reason is that Intel has released versions of its Intel audio display drivers, which lead to audio problems.

Microsoft reports the new block on its status page for the 1809-based versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server and Windows Server 2019. After updating to those versions, users may experience problems relating to audio playback, from a display that can be accessed via HDMI, usb-c or displayport is connected to a PC, according to Microsoft.

The cause lies with Intel audio display drivers with version numbers and, which Intel has accidentally released to PC manufacturers. The drivers activate functionality that Windows does not support, according to Microsoft. The Redmond company works with Intel and OEMs to run the drivers.

The Windows 10 October Update is going to be dramatic for Microsoft. In early October, the company had to stop spreading after people complained that some of their files had disappeared. Halfway through November the company resumed distribution, but after that there were still problems, including network drives and iCloud .
