Just 2 weeks ago Microsoft released an update build 19042.782 for the Beta and Release Preview channels for Windows 10 v20H2, which went through the same update name KB4598291. They have released yet another build to the same 2 insider channels with the same name, build 19042.789. However, this new release does not bring any new features to the table, but rather just a few fixes.
We predict that since Microsoft has been testing their channels with follow-up updates, this is another one of those releases. Installing the update KB4598291 would now change your OS build to 19042.789.
What’s new in 19042.789 – KB4598291
Since Microsoft didn’t introduce any new features but they have fixed a few issues that were seen in the last build 19042.782. Let us dive into what fixes and improvements this new build has to offer:
- An issue with the Microsoft Exchange Accounts which resulted in the error prompt “Something went wrong” and the error code 0x80131500 after updating to Windows 10 v20H2 has been fixed.
- A problem with Windows Update scans occurring when authenticated proxy is used as a fallback for the sync service after the initial one fails has been catered to.
- A problem with the Windows update continuously displaying “Getting ready…” when updating from Windows 10 v1703 to Windows 10 v20H2 and not being updated has been resolved.
