Microsoft has re-launched a new version of the KB3150513 patch which offers Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) to systems running Windows 10, preceding the April release or other older Windows versions.
The KB3150513 patch is an update that has been released and re-released several times. Microsoft has been constantly improving it in order to make the Creators Update available for more systems and the update is now at revision 33.
Windows 10 Creators Update`s availability hinges on several factors like compatibility problems that some users reported. This means that Microsoft can suspend the release for specific systems anytime.
KB3150513`s main purpose is to prepare the systems for the Windows 10 Creators Update, meaning that its re-launch most likely indicates that Redmond is ready to initiate another stage of the rollout after successfully finishing bug fixing.
“This update provides the latest set of definitions for compatibility diagnostics that are performed on the system. The updated definitions help enable Microsoft and its partners to ensure compatibility for all customers who want to install the latest Windows operating system. Installing the new update also makes sure that the latest Windows operating system version is correctly offered through Windows Update, based on compatibility results.” – explains Microsoft in the description of the patch.
The KB3150513 update is for systems running Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 prior to the April release (version 1703). However, it is important to know that some prerequisite updates are also necessary.
Nevertheless, if you don’t want to install the Windows 10 Creators Update for some reason for some reason, the patch needs to be blocked manually. However, you should really think about that as this new version features some new security improvements, hence, the expert recommend that users install it as soon as possible.
