This is an issue on older versions of Windows 10 and should be fixed in Windows 10 April Update.

Should we then advance the minimum required version accordingly?

I would like to have a confirmation from Ross that this is indeed working now. And that it is fixed in April Update, and not Fall Creators Update, as I may be wrong which exactly update fixed the issue.

Sounds good, but we shouldn't close the issue yet. Either way a change is required, even if that change is just to update the minimum required version.
