Any device running Windows 10 configured to receive updates automatically from Windows Update, including Enterprise and Pro editions, will be offered the latest Windows 10 feature update based on device compatibility and Windows Update for Business deferral policy. This doesn't apply to long-term servicing editions. ### Windows 10 servicing stack update - 19041.1161, 19042.1161, and 19043.1161 * This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) ensure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates. ## Known issues in this update ### __ Click or tap to view the known issues **Symptom**| **Workaround** ---|--- When using the Microsoft Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) to enter Kanji characters in an app that automatically allows the input of Furigana characters, you might not get the correct Furigana characters. You might need to enter the Furigana characters manually.**Note **The affected apps are using the **ImmGetCompositionString()** function.| This issue is resolved in KB5005101. Devices with Windows installations created from custom offline media or custom ISO image might have [Microsoft Edge Legacy](<https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/what-is-microsoft-edge-legacy-3e779e55-4c55-08e6-ecc8-2333768c0fb0>) removed by this update, but not automatically replaced by the new Microsoft Edge. This issue is only encountered when custom offline media or ISO images are created by slipstreaming this update into the image without having first installed the standalone servicing stack update (SSU) released March 29, 2021 or later.**Note **Devices that connect directly to Windows Update to receive updates are not affected. This includes devices using Windows Update for Business. Any device connecting to Windows Update should always receive the latest versions of the SSU and latest cumulative update (LCU) without any extra steps. | To avoid this issue, be sure to first slipstream the SSU released March 29, 2021 or later into the custom offline media or ISO image before slipstreaming the LCU. To do this with the combined SSU and LCU packages now used for Windows 10, version 20H2 and Windows 10, version 2004, you will need to extract the SSU from the combined package. Use the following steps to extract the SSU: 1. Extract the cab from the msu via this command line (using the package for KB5000842 as an example): **expand Windows10.0-KB5000842-x64.msu /f:Windows10.0-KB5000842-x64.cab <destination path>** 2. Extract the SSU from the previously extracted cab via this command line: **expand Windows10.0-KB5000842-x64.cab /f:* <destination path>** 3. You will then have the SSU cab, in this example named **SSU-19041.903-x64.cab**. Slipstream this file into your offline image first, then the LCU. If you have already encountered this issue by installing the OS using affected custom media, you can mitigate it by directly installing the [new Microsoft Edge](<https://www.microsoft.com/edge>). If you need to broadly deploy the new Microsoft Edge for business, see [Download and deploy Microsoft Edge for business](<https://www.microsoft.com/edge/business/download>). After installing the June 21, 2021 (KB5003690) update, some devices cannot install new updates, such as the July 6, 2021 (KB5004945) or later updates. You will receive the error message, "PSFX_E_MATCHING_BINARY_MISSING".| For more information and a workaround, see KB5005322. After installing this update, the Encrypted File System (EFS) API [OpenEncryptedFileRaw(A/W)](<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/api/winbase/nf-winbase-openencryptedfilerawa>), often used in backup software, will not work when you back up to or from a Windows Server 2008 SP2 device. OpenEncryptedFileRaw will continue to work on all other versions of Windows (local and remote).| This behavior is expected because we addressed the issue in CVE-2021-36942.**Note** If you cannot use backup software on Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 or later after installing this update, contact the manufacturer of your backup software for updates and support. ## How to get this update **Before installing this update**Microsoft now combines the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system with the latest cumulative update (LCU).
