Note: If you encounter DHCP / network connectivity issues or error “WiFi doesn’t have a valid IP configuration” when connecting to a Wi-Fi network after installing the Cumulative Update KB3201845 (Build 14393.479), simply “Restart” Windows (instead of Shutting down and starting manually) so that the next reboot doesn’t use the “Fast Startup” mode. If that doesn’t help, do a Network Reset which fixes most connectivity issues in the system.

  1. Dear Winhelp

    I tried to download Build 14986 and ESD decrypter.
    But I only got this message: 0x80004005.
    When will Build 14986 Iso come ?

    Please use e-mail.

  2. After the update, all Microsoft windows including the start menu scroll automatically on mouseover. It is not a virus or mouse driver issue as I have 3 mice and all do the same. It’s a joke! Everything was fine until the auto update, now I have to navigate all Microsoft windows (and only Microsoft ones) like file explorer with the keyboard. Thanks morons!
