  • More fixes for the VB/VBA/VBScript bugs in this month’s patches

    Posted on August 18th, 2019 at 07:10 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    On Friday evening, we got fixes for the VB “invalid procedure call” bugs in

    • Win10 1709
    • Win7
    • Win8.1
    • Server 2008
    • Server 2008 R2
    • Server 2012
    • Server 2012 R2

    On Saturday afternoon (US time), a few more appeared:

    • Win10 1809
    • Win10 1703
    • Win10 1607
    • Win10 1507
    • Server 2016
    • Server 2019

    Like the others, these are one-off patches that have to be installed manually or via a “Check for updates” click of death.

    We’re still waiting for fixes for Win10 1803 and 1903.

    There’s a reason why we’re on MS-DEFCON 2. Don’t install ANY of this month’s patches. Stay tuned.

    I still get a chuckle when people tell me that Win10 is the “last” version of Windows…

    UPDATE: Günter Born says, “But I received user feedback, that the issue isn’t completely fixed.” Oh boy.
