The place we stand with messy September Home windows and .NET patches


This month’s Home windows and .Web patches maintain all types of nasty surprises — some acknowledged, some not, some simple to skirt, some ready to swallow the unwary complete. Right here’s a fast overview of what’s happening with this month’s missives.

Most necessary: If you happen to can’t preserve your self (or your purchasers) from clicking “Allow Enhancing” in Phrase, you could set up a broad vary of .NET patches (if you happen to’re working Home windows 7 or eight.1) or cumulative updates (if you happen to’re working Home windows 10), like, NOW.

Home windows 10 Creators Replace model 1703

Cumulative Replace KB 4038788, which brings the construct quantity as much as 15063.608, has two acknowledged (however not mounted) bugs:

  • Putting in KB4034674 might change Czech and Arabic languages to English for Microsoft Edge and different functions.
  • After putting in this replace, some customers might observe efficiency or unresponsiveness points on the primary launch of the Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft advises: Closing and restarting Microsoft Edge will alleviate this situation.  This situation might seem periodically. Microsoft is engaged on a decision and can present an replace in an upcoming launch.

I’m listening to studies that 4038788 brings out all types of issues with Edge — it’s not simply on first launch, and re-starting Edge doesn’t clear up the issues.
