Any news on roll out of Autumn Update?

I have Windows 10 version1803 (OS Build 17134.441). I prefer to wait official roll outs rather than insider ones. I am minding a couple of other folks PC's while they are away for a while (Updating, backing up etc). I had hoped to get the new version installed - is it 1809? .

What is the latest on the roll out after it was pulled in October?

Does not seem well publicised.

It is out, but they are rolling it out gradually, I got it at the beginning of the month, if you do a search you can get it from Microsoft officially if you want it

Thanks; I’ll have a look.

It seems , if one uses iCloud, necessary to update to the latest version before installing 1809. Will try in next few days.

When you say you got it, was that through normal check for updates or did you go through here ?

The last I read about it, the phased rollout is tied to your hardware, particularly your CPU. Which CPU do you have?

Golden update with any software updates is to leave it a couple of months whilst bugs are ironed out.

Apart from qwbos' link I cannot see a way of updating without going into the development mode.

"leave it a couple of months"

Isn't that possible only with 'Pro' not 'Home' versions?

qwbos I did it through yiur link, took about 2 hours but nice and satable

Thanks for wise advice! Will wait for now

I read an article that explained where the "missing" files had moved to and that MS had provided a fix to relocate them to their original setting. From memory, files only moved if a fairly obscure setting had been changed.


Ok. It would be interesting to see if anybody has had a natural delivery.


I checked my Intel drivers a couple of nights ago thinking old drivers might have been a possible cause of delay in the update being delivered. I was given an updated version of the Intel Driver & Support Assistant which advised that there was no new driver available for me.

Looks like sitting back and waiting would be a good idea.
