  • Patch Watch: February Patch Tuesday and yet more problems with the new Japanese calendar

    Posted on February 18th, 2019 at 05:28 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Patching insight from Patch Lady Susan Bradley, including an overview of this month’s voluminous Windows, Office, .NET, and other patches.

    If you’ve been following along, you know that Microsoft has had a wretched time fixing Windows and Office so they’ll work with the new Japanese date system. Here’s what’s going on — and why there’s so much energy being devoted to fixing the furshlugginer thing.

    In the new AskWoody Plus Newsletter issue 16.6.0 – out this morning. Now available – yes, for free — on AskWoody.

      I cannot link any of your headlines, such as the one above, to the actual article. What am I missing? Windows 7-64 bit using Chrome.

      Susan, your notes about Office updates talk about 2016 and earlier versions, but my organization is now just pushing out Office 2019. Since I’m sure that 2019 has been out for at least a few months, are there downloadable updates for that version, or how will its updating work? Thanks.

        Office 2019 is Click-to-run. The MS pages say this about Office 2019

        Office 2019 also includes new IT value for enhanced security and streamlined administration. We introduced Click-to-Run (C2R), a modern deployment technology, in Office 2013, and it’s now used to deploy and update Office across hundreds of millions of devices worldwide. With Office 2019, we’re moving the on-premises versions of Office to C2R to reduce costs and improve security. The advantages of C2R include predictable monthly security updates, up-to-date apps on installation, reduced network consumption through Windows 10 download optimization technology, and an easy upgrade path to Office 365 ProPlus. C2R offers the same enterprise-focused management capabilities as Microsoft Installer (MSI) based products and will also support an in-place upgrade when you move to Office 2019 from older MSI-based products. To learn more, refer to the Office 2019 Click-to-Run FAQ.

          As PK says, click to run is a different beast.  You don’t see individual updates, it’s all or nothing.  So if February’s office “clump” doesn’t play nice you have to roll back to January’s “clump”.

          (Note to self do article on Office 2019 click to run and how you can kinda push off updates on that and how you want to be on the slow channel for that too)

      Patch Lady: “It turns out that the Apple iTunes/iCloud app I installed some months back caused a block that will not be removed until mid-February,..”

      Apple updated iTunes/iCloud apps.. and according to Microsoft the update block has been resolved on Nov, 27

        You can check Susan Bradley’s Master Patch List for information/status on those patches. For future reference, the link is in the “Master Patch List” button in the Menubar at the top of the blog.

        Otherwise, those of us who follow the DEFCON system are waiting to patch until Woody says it’s safe (raises the DEFCON number to 3 or above) and publishes the instructions on ComputerWorls.
