  • Microsoft yanks buggy Office 2016 non-security patch KB 4462238

    It’s only been out for 24 hours or so. Why, you may ask, did they pull it? The KB article gives the answer:


    After this update is installed, clicking a hyperlink in an Office application, such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or Outlook, may cause the application to stop working. If you experience this issue, you can uninstall the update by following the instructions in the “More information” section.

    That’s kind of a tiny, inconsequential bug that would never show up in testing, right?

    Thx @gborn
