Critical: Win10-IoT UWF Hotfix

VXL urgently recommends that you download and install the hotfix below for all Win10-IoT thin clients.

This hotfix has been issued in order to improve the operational reliability of our Win10-IoT thin clients.

The hotfixes address the following issues:

  1.  The UWF Cache Handler fix corrects the issues that stops the Microsoft scheduled maintenance task and automatically creates scheduled tasks for Defender to scan and update the system. This results in memory errors.
  2. The UWF Cache fills up and does not release its contents on a FIFO manner resulting in memory utilization errors.

Supported Platforms

All VXL Win10-IoT Thin Clients

Applicable Operating System Builds

All Win10-IoT builds
