Microsoft Windows 10 update affected by Media Player bug
Windows users have been reporting new problems with the latest updates from Microsoft. The November 13, 2018 release patch has come with some inherent bugs that have affected Windows Media Player. The Redmond-based company has been made aware of the problem and has published the symptom and workaround on its support pages:
After installing this update, users may not be able to use the Seek Bar in Windows Media Player when playing specific files.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
The KB4467708 (OS Build 17763.134) patch applies to the October 2018 Update (version 1809) that saw its rollout halted due to a serious file deletion bug. A further issue with version 1809 involved a bug that had problems with ZIP files. Now Windows 10 users who choose to use Windows Media Player may have to look to alternative sources for their media consumption.
The seek bar issue is apparently not the only problem with the new update. Some users may struggle to set default applications, such as Microsoft Notepad, for use with specific files. Microsoft has stated that it expects a solution for this issue to be ready by late November.
