Microsoft has released an optional Windows 10 update for version 2004 with a number of bug fixes and quality improvements earlier today. This release fixes two of the known issues that affected the Windows 10 May 2020 Update that prevented some users from upgrading their devices to the latest version.
Known issues with this Windows 10 May 2020 update are
- Variable refresh rate does not work as expected on devices with Intel iGPU
Intel and Microsoft have identified incompatibilities when using a Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) monitor connected to an Intel Integrated Graphics Processing Unit (iGPU) display adapter and Windows 10, version 2004 (the Windows 10 May 2020 Update). Enabling VRR on affected devices will not enable the VRR for games using Direct X 9.
- Difficult to connect to more than one Bluetooth device
Realtek and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of drivers for Realtek Bluetooth radios and Windows 10, version 2004 (the Windows 10 May 2020 update). Windows 10 devices with affected Realtek Bluetooth radio drivers may not be able to connect or pair with more than one Bluetooth device at a time after updating.
While both of the above issues have been resolved via KB4568831, the company is not removing the compatibility stop on the affected devices as this is an optional update and is not bundled with Windows 10 v2004 meaning some devices may still be open to issues. Microsoft said it expects to remove the associated security measures in mid-August when Patch Tuesday makes today’s fixes part of the non-optional security update bundle.
Microsoft also noted the following issue as “mitigated” with an expected fix for next month’s cumulative update:
Older Nvidia display adapter (GPU) drivers issue
Nvidia and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues with certain versions of the Nvidia display adapter drivers and Windows 10 version 2004 (Windows 10 May 2020 Update). Windows 10 devices with affected Nvidia display driver versions may experience a blue screen stop error or other issues during or after installing the update to Windows 10, version 2004. The affected drivers are any version lower than 358.00.
You can choose to manually install Windows 10 version 2004 through the ISO files and then install this latest cumulative update. However, the Windows creator continues to advise users of the affected devices to manually update to Windows 10 May 2020 Update using the Update Now button or the Media Creation Tool until the compatibility block is removed.
