Global tech giant Microsoft has warned Windows users from installing its latest update. Microsoft had announced the new Windows 10 Creators update on March 31 and started to be rolled out in April. Microsoft is warning users against installing the Windows 10 Creators update on their own and is blocking the update to devices. As a matter of fact, the update was not really as flawless as it was meant to be. Microsoft, for its part, went with a block in a bid to minimise the effect and ensure that all users do not get affected.

The tech major has been informing its users to wait till their PCs, phones or any other device offers them Windows 10 Creators update automatically. Microsoft has warned its users from manually installing the update on their devices. Microsoft in its blog said that the first phase of their rollout was aimed at the newer devices. According to the company, these have the best chance to offer users, the best update experience for the Creators Update. The reason is that Microsoft had been testing the (Original Equipment Manufacturer) OEM hardware along with their Independent Software Vendors (ISV) app partners too.


Once the update was rolled out, customers had started to point out issues. These consumers post their issues on the company’s Feedback Hub and after documenting the problems, it posts a fix on the forum. It may also think about issuing a Windows update or a driver compatibility update. Another option for the company is to go for a complete block of the update so that it can make sure more users are not affected. This is what has been happening and this is exactly the problem with Microsoft’s Creators Update.

Microsoft has said that it will be “blocking the availability of the update to devices we know will experience issues.” As of now, it appears to be a part of a “controlled rollout approach” so that a better experience can be ensured for all users. Microsoft says this blocking is done based on what they think will impact users.

Microsoft classifies a blocked update as a high priority update because it needs a quick fix. The company, therefore, tries minimise the impact of any issues. But as of now, Microsoft has only warned against downloading of the Microsoft Windows 10 Creators update.
