        A fascinating grab bag of fixes – with absolutely nothing that should interest most reasonably sane individuals. Details coming in Computerworld Woody

        At least they were honest and clear about the changes 🙂

        but it seems very odd for S 2012/2008 to get preview rollup with nothing changed

          Very much so. I wonder if there’s something they aren’t telling us? Or did somebody just post the wrong file?

          The files inside 2019-11 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2012 for x64-based Systems (KB4525242) are all dated October 30.

          The files inside 2019-11 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2012 for x64-based Systems (KB4525246)  are also dated October 30.

          There’s a slight difference in file size

          The earlier patch, windows8-rt-kb4525242-x64_ebeab6040458eb5051e4a11cf44e0b28f16b1efc.msu , shows up as 305,094 KB

          The latest patch, windows8-rt-kb4525246-x64_ac93932bb6860c0543988e2022186b248e45e115.msu , is 304,586 KB

          Definitely something strange going on….

        BTW, i noticed in WSUS they cleaned the house of Adobe Flash player, and expired 130 old updates (for Win 8.1 and 10 up to 1709)

        but as expected, they forgot the forgotten update KB4462930

        You mentioned the Monthly Rollup preview for Win8.1 & Server 2012 R2… but missed the corresponding .NET Preview. With that:

        Preview of Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1, 4.7.2, 4.8 for Windows 8.1, RT 8.1, and Server 2012 R2 — KB4524743

        Looks like it reapplies parts of the Quality Rollup for Sept. 10. Since it’s Optional, as Emily Litella would say… “Never mind.”

        Windows 8.1, 64-bit, back in Group A... & leaning toward Windows 10 V2004. As long as it's a Lot Less Buggy!

          It’s been a common practice, only 4.8 and 4.7.2 gets non-security fixes and improvements
          4.5.2 and 3.5 hardly get security updates
