Windows 10 May 2019 Update still has issues with anti-cheat software

In February we wrote about new Windows 10 builds having issues with anti-cheat technology. At the time, Microsoft said the issue was out of its hands as it's caused by third-party software. The latest news about this is that some video games may still cause problems with the upcoming Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

WCCF Tech writes users with games that use this anti-cheat software will be unable to upgrade their system to the latest version of Windows 10. These games need to be either removed or get patched to support Windows 10 May 2019 Update:
While some users are unable to upgrade to the latest version, others are also experiencing crashes once they have managed to install Windows 10 May 2019 Update. In a blog post today while announcing a new Preview Build from the Windows 10 version 2020, Microsoft acknowledged that the older versions of anti-cheat software used with games is what is causing the problems.

“We are working with partners on getting their software updated with a fix, and most games have released patches to prevent PCs from experiencing this issue,” Microsoft said. The Windows maker also recommended that in order “to minimize the chance of running into this issue, please make sure you are running the latest version of your games before attempting to update the operating system.”
The software giant says it's cooperating with video game makers and anti-cheat tech developers to ensure this issue doesn't reoccur with the introduction of Windows 10 20H1.
