Microsoft Removes Three Windows 10 1903 Upgrade Blocks

Microsoft removed three Windows 10 version 1903 upgrade blocks today after resolving the three critical issues impacting the Windows devices blocked from updating.

According to the Windows Release Health Dashboard the first issue fixed by Microsoft was triggering loss of functionality in the Dynabook Smartphone Link app after installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

“Loss of functionality may affect the display of phone numbers in the Call menu and the ability to answer phone calls on the Windows PC,” explains the issue’s description.

The second fixed known issue would lead to audio loss on computers with free Dolby Atmos for home theater extension or paid Dolby Atmos for headphones extension “acquired through the Microsoft Store due to a licensing configuration error.”

The problem occurred because users couldn’t enable Dolby Atmos extensions because of not being able to connect to the Dolby Access app.

An issue which would throw a ‘This PC can’t be upgraded to Windows 10’ error when trying to update Windows with internal hard drives, external USB devices, or memory cards attached was also resolved today by Redmond. This was caused by incorrect drive reassignment during the system installation process, 

The compatibility holds for all three resolved issues have been removed by Microsoft, but users should note that in some cases it may take up to 48 hours until they can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update on their devices.
