Patch Management Solution for Windows


Starting from PM Import version 7.3.194 Patch Management solution supports new compact update packages introduced in Windows 10 1809.

Updates of this new type are significantly smaller in size, provide better installation performance and will replace both delta and cumulative updates for all Windows 10 versions starting from 1809.

Note that this change will not be back-ported to down-level supported versions of Windows 10 and they will still be serviced by delta and cumulative updates (until February 2019 when delta updates will be discontinued).
