Windows 10 May Update is facing some problems, but yet it’s not the first time Windows have some issues. The May update of Windows 10 with the latest cumulative update (KB4517389) introducing a new batch of issues.
Microsoft’s Edge browser now appears to be broken for some, and there are reports of installation failures.
The main issue with the new update is in the Start menu, which failed to work due to a ‘critical error’ as we reported late last week (although that bug doesn’t affect many people, Microsoft claims).
The new issue with Edge has been reported online and via Microsoft’s Answers.com forum as follows:
“After installing KB4517389 today can’t open Edge. Tried rebooting. Tried uninstalling update it worked then. Reinstalled update and Edge won’t open. Tried reset and still won’t work. All other browsers work including Internet Explorer.”
One poster notes that this update “was delivered and Edge will not start among other symptoms,” adding that: “The Edge start menu icon is grayed out with a white line across the bottom of the tile. Edge Dev and other browsers work fine.”
Despite the various issues, Microsoft’s official document for the KB4517389 update still states that there are no known issues. The firm has said elsewhere that it’s aware of problems though, at least in the case of the Start menu, and that this should be resolved later in October.
Some lucky users of Windows have got the generic error message regarding the Windows Latest update also noted that some users are saying that this latest cumulative update fails to install with some kind of generic error message.
All these kinds of errors and loopholes are just polluting the reputation of Microsoft’s Windows.
