Earlier this month, Microsoft released cumulative update KB4598291 for the Windows 10 software platform, which fixes many bugs known since the launch of Windows 10 20H2 last fall. However, after installing this package, some users drew attention to the emergence of new problems that are associated with the installation of the update and the launch of online games.
This is evidenced by user reports that come to Microsoft support through the “Feedback Hub” in Windows 10. According to the available data, in some cases, users simply cannot install KB4598291. The installation process freezes for a long time, after which a message appears stating that the update cannot be installed, and the OS rolls back the changes.
In other cases, users reported that after installing KB4598291, some online games, including World of Warcraft, stopped launching. It is noteworthy that after the removal of the mentioned package, the performance of the games is restored.
It’s worth noting that KB4598291 is an optional update that users can install themselves. This means that at this stage it will not be difficult to solve the problem with the launch of online games, if it occurs after installing the cumulative update. However, KB4598291 will soon be part of an update rollup due to be released this week as part of the Patch Tuesday program.
