Windows 10’s latest Redstone 4 update build faces another serious bug

Microsoft’s Redstone 4/Spring Creators Update for Windows 10 was originally set to release on April 10th, with the discovery of a significant bug delaying the release of the next major iteration of Windows 10.  

Since then Microsoft has released Build 17134 to Windows 10 Insiders for testing, fixing the issues that were found in Build 17133, though now it looks like Windows 10’s Redstone 4 update will need to be delayed once again. 

Several news outlets have reported that Windows 10 Insiders are facing issues when changing Windows 10’s default applications, with changes causing the Windows Settings app to crash. This issue prevents Windows 10 users from changing Microsoft’s default app selection, which is a problem if you dislike applications like Microsoft’s Edge browser of Window’s 10’s default movie player. 

While this issue is not as severe as the blue screen issues caused by the bugs within Windows 10 build 17133, this issue will likely delay the release of Windows 10’s Spring Creators/Redstone 4 update further. Microsoft wouldn’t want to postpone the launch of Redstone 4 to release the OS with such a serious bug.

Windows 10’s Spring Creators update was expected to release on April 24th, two weeks after the update was originally planned, though this could be delayed further if Microsoft is unable to address this issue in time. Thankfully this bug seems fixable with a cumulative update, which shouldn’t require Microsoft to release a new build of Windows 10 to insiders.
