  • Patch Lady – KB 4088875 issue acknowledged

    Posted on March 16th, 2018 at 23:57 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Microsoft has officially acknowledged the issue Woody pointed to yesterday.

    In the release notes of KB 4088875 this is now listed:

     

    A new Ethernet virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) that has default settings may replace the previously existing vNIC, causing network issues after you apply this update. Any custom settings on the previous vNIC persist in the registry but are unused. Apply the resolution documented in KB3125574 (Convenience Rollup) for Known issue 1:

    A new Ethernet virtual Network Interface Card (vNIC) that has default settings may replace the previously existing vNIC, causing network issues after you apply this update. Any custom settings on the previous vNIC persist in the registry but are unused.

    IP address settings are lost after you apply this update. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
  • What’s wrong with the Win10 1709 January Delta package?

    Just saw this from Bogdan Popa on Softpedia.

    KB 4088776 — for the Win10 1709 March Cumulative Update — has been modified to include this warning:

    Users with Windows 10 Version 1709 Enterprise that have installed the January 2018 Delta package may encounter failure issues when installing the February and March 2018 updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Specifically, the Windows 10, version 1709 February Delta Update may silently fail.

    Microsoft is aware of this issue and has expired the following Windows 10 version 1709 Delta Update KBs on the Microsoft Catalog on March 13, 2018:

    KB4056892 – January 2018

    KB4074588 – February 2018

    KB4088776 – March 2018

    Microsoft recommends that users uninstall the Windows 10 version 1709 January KB4056892 Delta Update package and install the March 2018 full latest cumulative update, KB4088776. Customers may resume using Delta Update packages with the April 2018 Windows 10 version 1709 monthly cumulative update.

    So… does anybody know what happened to the January Delta update?
