      Another month and the .NET updates giving me that old headache feeling yet again. Does anyone know why they are re-released? Just metadata changes or what? The sizes are identical.

    • #2445638

      No issues to report on two Windows 8.1 Pro systems.

      After taking a Macrium image of the system, installed the Servicing Stack Update first (KB5014025) downloaded from the Microsoft Catalog. Then via Windows Update installed the Monthly Rollup (KB5014011) and Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2, 4.8 for Windows 8.1 for x64 (KB5013872).

      Windows 11

      • 2022-05 .NET 6.0.5 Security Update for x64 Client (KB5014330)
      • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 – v5.101 (KB890830)
      • 2022-05 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Windows 11 for x64 (KB5013628)
      • 2022-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5013943)

      All four updates were installed at the same time. When I rebooted, cleaned up, and then checked for updates, I had to reinstall Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 – v5.101 (KB890830).

      No errors, but updates seem more and more cumbersome.

      I am surprised that the SSU for Windows 8.1 didn’t appear in Windows Update.  I found out about it here and installed it from the Update Catalog.  GHacks didn’t mention it.  Thank you PKCano.

       

       

      • #2445672

        If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU should install automatically.  If I remember right, you won’t see it in MU/WU but if you look in windows update history after the fact you’ll see it installed?

        I don’t know if I have an 8.1 either in a vm or on a machine to test but most of the SSU’s are moving to be pretty automatic these days.

        Susan Bradley Patch Lady

        • #2445715

          In Win8.1 the SSU does not install automatically.
          The SSU has to install by itself. It will not show up in the WU queue until there are no other pending updates. So you have to install or hide the pending updates before you see it in the queue.

          You can:
          + Install the SSU manually from Catalog download first, then run WU
          + Install/hide all the pending updates until the queue is empty, then search for updates to see the SSU
          + Hide all pending updates so the queue is empty, search and install the SSU, then unhide and install the updates you want.

        • #2445782

          https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/5014032  This month they also have a standalone SSU for corporate folks.

          7 would come down after 10 would come down before the update until they integrated it.

          Hi wavy:

          What is your Win 10 Pro version and build shown at Settings | System | About | Windows Specifications, and do you have a 32-bit or 64-bit OS? If required, Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs) for Win 10 are now deployed by Windows Update with the monthly cumulative update and the release notes <here> for the May 2022 cumulative update KB5013942 (OS Builds 19042.1706, 19043.1706, and 19044.1706 for Win 10 v20H2, v21H1 and v21H2, respectively) note that either SSU 19042.1704, 19043.1704 or 19044.1704 were included with KB5013942 this month.

          Windows Update applied the May 2022 Patch Tuesday updates on my Win 10 Pro v21H2 machine on 13-May-2022 and KB5014032 (the 10-May 2022 SSU for v20H2, v21H1 and v21H2) is not listed as a separate update in my Windows Update history. The “Missing Security Updates” section of my Belarc Advisor Free v11.4.0 report (with the latest v2022.5.12.1 Belarc definitions) shows I’m fully patched.

          Hi.

          You may be right, but usually I see it in the WU list immediately.  I can’t check what you write now since I installed it from the Catalog.  I will keep what you write for future reference.  Thank you.

           

      • #2445682

        As I recall, in W8.1 the latest SSU will not be offered through Windows Update until all important updates have been installed, or in other words, the important update queue is empty. I don’t remember whether it has to be empty because all the important updates have been installed or because you may have hidden some of them. I have 2 W8.1 computers and my important update queue is never empty because I refuse to install .NET 4.8, the MSRTs (MSRT updates have borked my W7 computers in the past, so no more), and Edge.

        So, before I install the monthly rollup through Windows Update, I go to the rollup’s support page where it will tell me to install the latest version of the SSU before installing the rollup and will also tell me what the latest SSU KB number is. I download the latest SSU from the MS Catalog, install it, and then let Windows Update install the rollup.

      After installing this months patches, one of my shared drives does not connect unless I use the ‘connect using different credentials’ setting and enter my username/password. This is for both server and client on the same domain. Normally, it connects as the current user on the client system and recognizes that I am already logged into the domain. The event logs on the server showed it trying to connect with the domain\computer name instead of domain\username. This suddenly happened after installing the May patches.

          Now, after some investigation, this problem may be more unusual and even specific to our domain setup. It appears to be caused by something in the patches no longer allowing the server computer to recognize the equivalency of password and smartcard domain credentials.

          Timeline:

          all computers on windows 10 21H2, April patches, all on same domain

          log into server computer with domain password

          log into client computer with smartcard (on domain)

          on client computer, access shared drive on server computer, successfully connects

          update server computer to May patches

          log into server computer with domain password

          log into client computer with smartcard (on domain)

          on client computer, access shared drive on server computer, connection fails

          Event viewer SMB client side says: Error: The attempted logon is invalid. This is either due to a bad username or authentication information.

          on client computer, access shared drive on server computer, specify “connect using different credential”, enter domain username and password, successfully connects

          Log out of server computer and close session, log back into server computer with smartcard

          log into client computer with smartcard (on domain)

          on client computer, access shared drive on server computer, connection succeeds

          on client computer, access shared drive on server computer, specify “connect using different credential”, enter domain username and password, connection fails

          this behavior does not change after installing the may patches on the client computer. I am able to log into the server computer via remote desktop using either the domain password and smartcard

          I am fairly certain that this behavior changed exactly when i installed the May updates on the server computer. However, our domain admins could have suddenly changed something without my knowledge also. Or there’s a small chance that I could just not remember how it behaved before the May updates.

      Just thought I’d share that my Lenovo ThinkPad T15 running Windows 11 Pro auto-installed KB5013943 this morning, and upon restart I got the wonderful Blue Screen of Death.  All auto-repair options failed and caused other BSoDs, and I had to do a System Restore to get it back to normal.

      Definitely pause this update!

          I attached the report.  That’s the only Dump File that shows though, which was right around the time my System Restore completed, so I’m not sure if that file is related or was overwritten by the restore.  Just doing a Google search for KB5013943 yields quite a few users with the same issues, or worse.

        • #2446075

          Quick update.  I decided to roll the dice and try re-installing the update.  It failed again, gave me a BSoD, and then restarted into the Recovery Options Menu, and when I selected “Restart my PC”, the install completed and was successful.  So today, the restart option worked and all updates shows as successfully installed.

          And then I restarted my laptop once more just to make sure it was good, and it’s now in the same BSoD loop as yesterday.  So much for the update installing successfully.  I had to do another System Restore to undo the update, which I have paused again, and will not be re-trying for a few weeks.

           

        • #2446084

          If you have fast restart turned on the “restart” from the power options is a complete restart like reb00t used to be. Re-boot is not the same. The system state is saved and restored while the user “stuff” is from scratch. Fast startup has been known to cause all manner of weird things to happen.

          If you have an SSD a cold restart is much less painful than it used to be although it does take longer than a reboot with fast startup enabled. If something strange happens on a Win10 or Win11 machine I’m on, that is one of the first things I check. If it is on I turn it off and see if the situation is resolved.

      I just read this article on Ghacks relating to KB5013943 and Win 11. It basically says the update may cause apps to crash, fail to open, or have other issues on affected devices. Just thought I would let folks who have Win 11 know about it. I also wonder if KB 5013942 for Win 10 21H2 might have the same impact. Anyone know?

        No just Windows 11.  Note that Microsoft is not going to pull the patch it will fix itself if it sees that you are having issues with the update.  There’s something called “known issue rollback” that will undo the part causing the issue.

      Windows Update installed the CU .NET Framework (KB5013624) first and duly prompted for a restart. The other 2 patches were held under the status “Pending Download” due to the “metered connection” status. After the restart, Windows Update
      proceeded to download and install the other 2 patches after I hit the “Download” button.

      Hi Everyone.  Anonymous here.

      After I installed the SSU for Windows 8.1 yesterday, it showed up in the Windows Update list today (the only one).  I hid it. No point in installing it twice. Did Microsoft forget something?

      I wish that updating wasn’t so complicated….

       

    • #2445818

      A first for me so This just an FYI for YOUR rare future repeat …. A guy in TenForums posted what happened to me. After MSRT and NetFrmwk processed (SSU inst’d in background) I saw — Re-Start Now — offered and didn’t pay attention to — Or Re-Start LATER. I Clk’d Re-Start and after May’s CU failed to show as Inst’d I went back to Update page to see the CU at 44% and it continued to Finish. All is well and Lesson Learned.. No idea WHY Re-Start was offered prematurely……

        Whenever there is a Net update, it will trigger a Restart request as soon as its installation completes.

        It is up to you to keep an eye on things to avoid a Restart during the CU installation. Having experienced this once, I watch for all updates  Awaiting restart before clicking on Restart now.

      Confirming the NPS issues.  We have two NPS proxy servers backed by NPS on three DCs.  Patched the DCs and started having issues with a VPN product that authenticates with computer certificates.  Rolling back now…

      I had the SSU (KB5012599) install without authorization – network connection set to metered on W10 home 21H2. Only discovered it when the restart message appeared. All other updates wait for me to initiate.

        KB 5012599 is not an SSU is it? It’s the April CU.

        From somewhere in the past, can’t produce the source, I recall something about the Metered Connection stopping larger downloads, but not smaller ones (SSUs are usually small). There was a maximum data size limiting setting in the Metered setup. Haven’t looked if it’s still there b/c I never use Metered Connections with my Win10 Pro.

          I read that, too, somewhere. My experience with a Win 10 Home computer that I got stuck maintaining last December is that setting metered connection to “on” has no effect at all on update downloads!

          The computer was up to date when I got it – I checked – just before December’s patch Tuesday, and after checking that I turned metered connection on. Turned the computer on a few days later and it was immediately downloading the December updates. After that I now pause updates for at least 2 weeks after a given patch Tuesday. That has worked so far.

        • #2446087

          This confirms your recollection – Metered connections in Windows (microsoft.com). But, does not offer any numbers.

        OK, Don’t know if it will help, but here’s the info I was referring to:
        Settings\Network&Internet\Status (Ethernet or WiFi, whatever you are using).
        Under Properties, Set Metered Connections = ON

          Interesting. When I turned metered connection “off” I did it from Settings —> Security and Updates. I don’t have the Win 10 computer available to me right now, so I may not have the terminology quite right, but the metered connection toggle was on the same page as where you can pause updates, or perhaps under advanced settings near where you can set a date to resume updates. I did not toggle it off from Network Status settings. The way I did it seems to have no effect on anything!

        • #2446166

          The Download updates over metered connections (extra charges may apply) toggle in Settings> Update & Security > Advanced options determines whether Windows is “allowed” to download updates over a metered connect, not whether your connection is actually metered.

          To set a connection as metered, open Settings > Network & Internet, click the Properties button in the Status section in the right-hand pane and turn on the Set as metered connection toggle.

          Note: these 2 setting are directly related (i.e. if you set your connection as metered you also must turn off the download over metered connection toggle to stop update downloads.)

          If you also want to set a specific “data limit” for your metered connection, Settings > Network & Internet, click the Data usage button in the Status section, click the Enter limit button in the right-hand pane and then enter your particular limit.

          Note: 0.1 MB is the lowest setting it’ll accept so any update that’s less ~103 KB will still be automatically downloaded.

      The following May 2022 Patch Tuesday updates were installed successfully on my Win 10 Pro v21H2 laptop by Windows Update today and I haven’t noticed any negative effects so far:

      • KB5013942: 2022-05 Cumulative Update for Win 10 v21H2 (OS Build 19044.1706)
      • KB5013624: 2202-05 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Win 10 v21H2
      • KB5014329: 2202-05 .NET 5.0.17 Security Update for x64 Client
      • KB890830 : Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool x64 – v5.101

      The only glitch I noticed in the Windows Update process was the same I reported in post # 2439606 for last month’s April 2022 Patch Tuesday that often occurs when I have more than one update that requires a Windows restart to complete installation. As soon as KB5013624 (Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8) finished installing and the status of the update changed from “Installing” to “Pending Restart” I was immediately prompted to “Restart Now” before KB5013942 (the May 2022 Cumulative Update for Win 10 v21H2 / OS Build 19044.1706) had finished installing – see attached image. This glitch isn’t an issue for me since always monitor the progress of my Patch Tuesday updates at Settings | Update & Security | Windows Update and don’t restart until all updates have finished installing but this might cause problems for others who use rely on Windows Update instead of using a third-party update manager like WuMgr.

        Let me see if I get this straight. You did not click on the ‘Restart Now’ in the black-box notification from the Action Center in the bottom right-hand corner. Instead, you let it keep installing the other updates –your screenshot shows that it’s started installing KB5013942 (21% of it), and you let it just continue until all of them are installed. Right?

        I wonder how WU handles this if one has GP=2 (notify download/install), which issues a ‘download’ button for the downloading and installation. If I recall, even though one has unhid all 4 that you list here so that WU can find them in the queue, there is only one download button (and not four buttons). I am guessing that after clicking that one ‘download’ button, the WU screen is going to look like yours … but, as you advise, wait until all of them are listed as having been installed. And, only then, if you do not want to wait until “outside active hours”, do you click on grey-box “Restart now” in the WU display. Right?

        • #2446269

          I use GP=2 and can confirm that clicking the Download starts the download and install for all the listed updates in the queue.

          If there is a .NET update, it will trigger a Restart request as soon as its installation is complete, as described above. Like lmacri, I monitor the updates until all are installed or “Pending restart” before clicking “Restart now”.

          If you restart immediately after the .NET update triggers it, you will, at best, waste time waiting for the reboot and a new download and install of the interrupted CU (BTDT). Less fortunate others have borked their systems by doing this, depending where the CU was interrupted.

          Hi WCHS:

          I have tweaked a few Windows Update settings in my Win 10 Pro Group Policy Editor but my Automatic Updates setting still has its default configuration [i.e., Local Group Policy Editor (run gpedit.msc) | Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components| Windows Update | Configure Automatic Updates is not configured and uses 3 = (Default Settings) Download the updates automatically and notify when they are ready to be installed]. I normally defer my Patch Tuesday Updates by choosing a specific date at Settings | Update & Security | Windows Update | Advanced Options | Advanced Options | Pause Updates | Select Date. Once my Patch Tuesday updates start (I can tell because the fan on my Dell Inspiron is so loud :-)) and all the available updates finish downloading (status = Pending Install) the process pauses and waits for me to click the Install Now button shown below to start the installation.

          Win-10-Pro-v21H2-May-2022-Patch-Tuesday-Install-Now13-May-2022

          When the Restart Now button appears I wait until all available updates have finished installing (i.e., until the status of every update that requires a restart has changed from “Installing- xx %” to “Pending Restart“). Once that happens I go ahead and click one of the Restart Now buttons shown in my image in post # 2446200 .  It doesn’t matter if I choose the Restart Now button at Settings | Update & Security | Windows Update or the Restart Now button in the grey pop-up notification from the Action Center as long as I’ve confirmed that all the updates have actually finished installing.

      Microsoft : You might see authentication failures on the server or client for services

      After installing updates released May 10, 2022 on your domain controllers, you might see authentication failures on the server or client for services such as Network Policy Server (NPS), Routing and Remote access Service (RRAS), Radius, Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), and Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP). An issue has been found related to how the mapping of certificates to machine accounts is being handled by the domain controller.

      Note: Installation of updates released May 10, 2022, on client Windows devices and non-domain controller Windows Servers will not cause this issue. This issue only affects installation of May 10, 2022, updates installed on servers used as domain controllers.

      Workaround: The preferred mitigation for this issue is to manually map certificates to a machine account in Active Directory. For instructions, please see Certificate Mapping…

      Affected platforms:

      ​Client: Windows 11, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H1; Windows 10, version 20H2; Windows 10, version 1909; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2016; Windows 10, version 1607; Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB; Windows 8.1; Windows 7 SP1
      ​Server: Windows Server 2022; Windows Server, version 20H2; Windows Server, version 1909; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2008 SP2..

      Win10/Pro 21H2 here. 19044.1645 (April)
      I’m not on the May updates yet, but the new “Search Highlights” feature showed up this morning. Clicking in the Search box to the far right (over the ‘celebration’ image) brings up recently accessed Apps b/c right-click on Taskbar or Search Box > Search has both ‘Search Highlights’ and ‘Open on hover’ turned on. When ‘Search Highlights’ is turned OFF, the ‘celebration’ image disappears from the Search Box, although it is still checked at Taskbar > Search.

      I don’t see anything about birthdays, significant past events of the day, etc yet.

      Help for Windows 8.1 x64 folks out there – updated, no issues so far:

      1. Keep in mind there’s a new SSU this month, thus manually download KB5014025 first, install it and reboot (for good measure).
      2. Let Windows Update install KB5014011 (or manually download it from the MS Catalog and install).

      Now here’s an additional tip for Windows 8.1 (eventually applicable to Windows Server 2012 R2) folks: if the monthly update fails to install with cryptic errors such as 0x80070002 (WIN32: ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) there might be a good, but less-known reason for that. Keep reading.

      You see, some people choose to “customize” their %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder by moving some of the system shortcuts from their default locations (for e.g. grouping them all into a ‘Windows’ sub-folder) and create a ‘Programs’ toolbar on the taskbar: it might look weird to do that but it is, in fact, a very simple, but handy way to have your shortcuts at hand, similarly to having the Windows 7 “Start” button, just by using the system resources (without any need for additional software).

      Problem is, the setup installers “expect” some, if not most system shortcuts to be present in their default locations: if they aren’t, installation might fail and throw those cryptic errors. This is a rather common cause of installation failures for Windows 10 (therefore, a quick and dirty way of preventing those “errors” from happening, if you knew that in advance, would simply be to move back the system shortcuts to their default locations, install the update and restore the system shortcuts back to your customized locations) – one that didn’t affect or manifest itself on Windows 7/8.x until very recently and something that people typically “fix” (blindly and unaware exactly of “why” it works) by “restoring the system health” with a dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command (or, in Windows 7, with a sfc /scannow command).

      Thus, to sum things up: if you happen to experience trouble updating your Windows 8.1 (and, eventually Server 2012 R2) systems, the fail-safe approach is usually to manually update:

      1. Confirm that your system shortcuts at %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs are all there, at their default locations (if they aren’t, move them back there or restore them with a dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command);
      2. Download KB5014025 (the latest SSU) and KB5014011 (2022-05 monthly update) from MS Catalog.
      3. Install KB5014025 (the latest SSU) first. Reboot afterwards (you don’t have to, but just in case – for good measure).
      4. Install KB5014011 (2022-05 monthly update) and reboot.

      Additionally (depending on your system configuration, preferences and needs) you might also let Windows Update install (and/or manually download and install yourself) the KB890830 (MSRT) and KB5013870 (.NET Rollup) updates.

      Hope it helps. 😉

        A better idea than moving shortcuts and remembering to put them back is to simply copy them. Sometimes the copy will stop working and will need to be re-copied, but because the original stays right where it is expected to be: no other problems!

        I’ve been doing this for years, starting with W7. I effectively have my own cascading start menu in a Toolbar I built myself, which is exactly what you are suggesting apart from the moving shortcuts bit and the fact I have multiple folders in the Toolbar.

        2 users thanked author for this post.
        • #2446955

          The whole point of moving the shortcuts merely reflected my own, personal preference – one way to keep things “clean” (like you, I too prefer to have shortcuts organized into multiple sub-folders, having no shortcuts at all at the “root” level) but I hear you: you have a very good point there – and yes, it is actually a much better suggestion than my (somewhat clumsy) approach.

          Indeed, it is probably better to leave the original system sub-folders and shortcuts quiet and alone at their default, predefined locations and just hide them (with an attrib +H <folder> or attrib +H <shortcut> command, from an elevated prompt) so that they won’t appear (be visible) in your customized toolbar – and make copies of those items you want to use into your customized toolbar. Something (roughly) like this:

          cd %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
          mkdir Windows
          xcopy /E /I Accessibility Windows\Accessibility
          xcopy /E /I Accessories Windows\Accessories
          xcopy /E /I “Administrative Tools” “Windows\Administrative Tools”
          xcopy /E /I “System Tools” “Windows\System Tools”
          xcopy /E /I “Windows PowerShell” “Windows\Windows PowerShell”
          attrib +H Accessibility
          attrib +H Accessories
          attrib +H “Administrative Tools”
          attrib +H “System Tools”
          attrib +H “Windows PowerShell”
          attrib -H *.lnk
          xcopy *.lnk Windows
          attrib +H *.lnk

          Visually, it works like a charm… Next month I’ll let you know if it also works out well and allows the monthly updates to install flawlessly in those few Windows 8.1 legacy systems I’m maintaining. Thanks for the tip! 😉

      • #2446861

        I may be a bit confused here, so bear with me.

        I have an Opera icon and a Firefox icon in the left part of the task tray. I don’t consider those icons to be shortcuts – there’s no bent arrow superimposed on them and they don’t require double clicks. Are you saying I need to make sure those icons (shortcuts?) in my taskbar are also still in the ProgramData\…\Programs folder?

        I have a real shortcut (bent arrow and requires double click) icon for Firefox on my desktop. Do I need to make sure it’s still in the ProgramData\…\Programs folder as well?

        Finally, what if the icons are in both places? Do I need to get rid of the task bar icons before I install the updates?

        Thanks.
