Microsoft just updated Windows 10 to fix the file association error we reported and some other issues. For some bizarre reasons, these fixes are not available if you have installed the October 2018 update on your computer.
On November 27, Microsoft released a "cumulative update" for Windows 10 that fixes a variety of errors. As Bleeping Computer Notes, Microsoft says that the problem that prevents some Windows users from setting their default programs is fixed. Unfortunately, the Windows Media Player error is still not fixed.
This update is only available for old versions of Windows 10. Specifically, it is available for Windows 10's April 2018 update, Fall Creators updates, Creators Update, and Anniversary Update. The respective cumulative updates are KB4467682, KB4467681, KB4467699 and KB4467684. Windows will install the correct update automatically, and you can download it directly by clicking "Search for Updates" in Windows Update.
Microsoft did not release a cumulative update package for the latest version of Windows 10, the bugged October 2018 update. It's quite crazy because the update in October 2018 requires most bug fixes by all.
Why did Microsoft not release a cumulative update for the October 2018 update? Is it time for a bugfix update, or is it delayed in a few weeks? We do not know, because Microsoft does not say anything.
