Windows 10 May 2020 Update weird bug triggers ESENT warnings

Windows 10 version 2004 upgrade

Windows 10 May 2020 Update, also known as version 2004, has
resulted in Blue Screen of Screen, system failures, driver
compatibility issue, and a host of other problems for some
users and configurations.

In addition, we’re seeing a reappearance of the old ESENT
problems after upgrading to Windows 10 version 2004. The
feature upgrade appears to be causing ESENT warnings for a
number of users.

The Extensible Storage Engine (ESE), which includes the
ESENT.DLL, has been included in all release of Windows since
Windows 2000 and it’s used by a number of Windows components
including Windows Update.

ESENT (ESE Runtime) runs on Windows 10 after login and it also
helps in desktop searches and indexing of your media catalog in
the operating system, according to a Microsoft moderator.

The problem with ESENT has been widely reported by users on
Microsoft’s community forum (1,
2,
3) and
Reddit.
Users fear that the glitch could create trouble for their
machines system eventually, but that doesn’t appear to be the
case yet, at least for the majority of the audience.

According to user reports and our own tests, Windows 10 version
2004 ESENT 642 warnings are also recorded in Event Viewer.

“Video.UI (23680,D,2) {B8A5865B-DCFF-4019-AA40-BEE2E42C0672}:
The database format feature version 9080 (0x2378) could not be
used due to the current database format 1568.20.0, controlled
by the parameter 0x410022D8 (8920 |
JET_efvAllowHigherPersistedFormat),” the error message in Event
Viewer reads.

ESENT 642 error

The problem can be confirmed by checking logs in the Event
Viewer and root cause of this issue is not yet clear. On my
device, Event Viewer logged at least 3,100 ESENT 642 errors
since May 28 when I upgraded to Windows 10 version 2004.

The ‘ESENT 642’ warnings were first reported when the Windows
10 May 2020 Update was launched, but we have found that bug is
still unpatched in the most recent cumulative update.

A few users on Microsoft’s forums and Reddit noted that they
have also noticed stuttering in games after having experienced
the ESENT warnings.

“I was stuttering like crazy too when playing R6S, I went from
150fps to 40/50fps, it was causing the OS to stutter also,” one
user noted. “I got this error playing and my game start to
stutter for few seconds like crazy,” another user wrote.

Users have noted that rolling back to Windows 10 version 1909
or 1903 removes the mysterious warning message.

If you don’t notice any problem after ESENT warnings, you
are not supposed to roll back Windows 10 version 2004.
