Windows 10: Update KB3199209 for Windows 10 version 1607
@Alphamale ... If I'm reading your post correctly, you're expecting to see this KB update on your Insider Preview. It only applies to the non-insider, regular 14393.xxx build....NOT Insider.
I was reading the 1607. No other info.
Thank you for that f14tomcat
Most welcome. Now you can sleep!

Servicing stack update for Windows 10 Version 1607: October 18, 2016
Maybe for those poor users that have problems updating(CU's) it is exciting.... if it even helps
We should only really ever have to re-boot for mega release changes / kernel patches.
While I know W10 isn't designed as a fully blown server - a lot of people DO run things like Virtual Machines on them and especially all sorts of media servers such as PLEX.
Running these things makes re-starting quite a nuisance --even if Windows now has "Outside Hours" option. Re-starting VM's can be a bit of a pain also --remember people can logon to your VM's even if they don't have an account on the HOST PC so you could for example have a multi-user SERVER Linux VM on your windows Host.
If you set up a VPN (such as OpenVPN server) restart can be a nuisance too.
A lot more people keep (or want to keep) computers running almost indefinitely. I'd like it so the only time I need to re-boot would be either for a complete OS / kernel upgrade or changing some hardware which means powering off the machine. A lot of HDD's / SSD's BTW can be "Hot swapped" so changing HDD's doesn't always mean powering off either.
Link says this, but not true:

You have to restart the computer after you apply this update.

Yours is the first report of a restart required. Maybe you also received other updates that would require a restart. Check your update history to see what else, if anything, was installed at the same time. Just a thought.
I wasn't prompted for a restart of the 4 computers I did the update on.
This just downloaded and installed. Anyone know what it is? Tried to search MS but didn't come up with anything. Very small update.
