  • New bug reported with all of this month’s Windows patches

    Posted on March 13th, 2019 at 21:22 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    In the past hour or so, Microsoft has acknowledged a new bug in the latest cumulative update of every version of Windows 10, and in the Monthly Rollups for Win7 and 8.1. (Security-only patches for Win7 and 8.1 appear to be unaffected.

    Symptom:

    After installing this security update, Custom URI Schemes for Application Protocol handlers may not start the corresponding application for local intranet and trusted sites on Internet Explorer.

    Workaround:

    Right-click the URL link to open it in a new window or tab.

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

    I don’t have any details as yet, but it sounds like avoiding IE is your best bet.

    Thx, Patch Lady!
