Windows 10 KB5014699 is now available for users in the
production channel. The cumulative update apparently doesn’t
come with major changes or improvements, but there are several
fixes. Direct download links for Windows 10 KB5014699 offline
installers are also available on Microsoft Update Catalog.
KB5014699 is a security cumulative update and it is available
as part of the June 2022 Patch Tuesday cycle. Since Windows 10
is no longer the primary operating system or priority for
Microsoft, you won’t find any big changes in the latest update
or forthcoming cumulative releases.
Of course, Microsoft has fixed several bugs, including an issue
where certain apps like Outlook or Excel won’t launch. That’s
because Microsoft remains committed to servicing the old
operating system while it continues to work on the next
generation Windows 11 i.e version 22H2.
As we pointed out recently, Windows 10 users have reported a
bug that causes apps to crash with unhelpful messages. As a
result, some folks have paused their Windows Updates in a bid
to minimize app crashes. The bug happens when the users open
their favourite app with .NET Framework and it only affects
folks who have the latest updates.
Microsoft has been trying to resolve the app crashes for a
while now, but Windows 10 recently run into another bug that
crashes GPU dependent apps. Thankfully, it looks like
Windows 10 Build 19044.1766 has finally delivered fixes for the
remaining app issues and most apps should run smoothly now.
