Microsoft finally removes Windows 10 2004 GameInput update block


Microsoft removes GameInput block from Windows 10 2004 update

Microsoft launched its major Windows 10 Update 2004 with May 2020 patch, which was almost after a half a year from the last major update in November 2019. The users, however, faced a major bug with the update that forced systems to restart automatically. The company after a month of launching the update fixed the issue and released it over June 2020 patch on June 9. As we saw earlier, the update fixed the May 2020 bug but had a new bug that breaks USB printer port after disconnecting printer while shutting down Windows 10.

Microsoft added a Windows 10 2004 compatibility hold to prevent customers from losing mouse input in some games and apps using GameInput Redistributable after applying the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. GameInput Redistributable is usually silently installed during the installation of games and apps which require support for gaming input devices.

However, Microsoft removed the compatibility hold applied on Windows 10 devices on May 27 after discovering that this issue did not affect GameInput Redistributable versions currently in use. Microsoft says that it can take up to 48 hours before the Windows 10 May 2020 Update is offered to previously blocked devices.

The company also confirmed the last week’s bug that broke printer port. After installing this update, certain printers might fail to print. The print spooler might throw an error or close unexpectedly when attempting to print, and no output will come from the affected printer. You might also encounter issues with the apps you are attempting to print from. You might receive an error from the app or the app might close unexpectedly, said Microsoft.

Microsoft has faced multiple problems that the users are complaining after the update of the Windows 10 May 2020 version. The company has also fixed the bugs as early as possible, but the users affected by the bugs get angry and why not.
