      Win 8.1 x64. Since System Restore served me well in the past, I took one for the team and loaded 5 updates. All installed successfully.

      Only detriment noticed so far was the loss of the Quick Launch folder on my toolbar. (That’s happened before). Put it back and all is well.

      My Office 2013 updates outside of Windows updates. Hasn’t updated yet.

        @anonymous your a “Brave Soul” taking one for the team but ahh its Win8.1 they haven’t messed it up Yet! nor the patching yet! you’ll forgive my scepticism but I may not be joining you just yet, as everything else is still on hold round here.
        I fired up Win10 Home 1803 VHD and WUMT went strait in to check mode, and “Bing Bang Boom” they were retrieved and hidden before Windoze Update had barely “Woke up” life is good for at least one OS round here, Win’s 7, 8.1, 10 Pro 1709 still have the “Sword of Damocles” hanging over them. You can work with them however as you have some control, and now the waiting game commences yet again. 😉

          Win 8.1 had a miss last month.  The Net update failed.   About a week later, Microsoft fixed it and it installed correctly.  Other than that, it has been smooth sailing on 8.1 x64.   So glad I made the move from 7 to 8.0 to 81.   Hopefully, I’m good up to 2023.

      Win 7. Group A.  For me,the monthly .Net security and Quality roll up KB 4345590 appears with the box checked and the .Net update KB 4343900 appeared unchecked. If all the bugs in the July updates are still not fixed, then they are still in the Aug. updates. It would appear that the hole we are in just keeps getting deeper and deeper and more confusing than ever. If they don’t pull them and fix them before releasing a new monthly update, they’re just going to carry over and over to the next month and that hole is gonna be so deep we’re all going to be speaking Chinese and the the problem will go on forever. Ignorance and stupidity that cannot be denied.

        KB4343900 is the Security Monthly Quality Rollup.

        Just checked for updates on my system and it is “checked” as well as the .NET KB4345590.

      The Win10 1703, 1709 and 1803 patches still list this known bug:

      After you install any of the July 2018 .NET Framework Security Updates, a COM component fails to load because of “access denied,” “class not registered,” or “internal failure occurred for unknown reasons” errors. The most common failure signature is the following:

      Exception type: System.UnauthorizedAccessException

      Message: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))

      So it looks like MS still hasn’t fixed the .NET bugs from last month.

      How widespread is this problem (eg does it mainly apply to corporate installs, but not so much Home Users)?  Trying to determine if it is worth a risk to install August if only this problem.

      Going to be another long, question filled month if this one item holds us up again.

      Maybe I am missing something, but the only patches I can see for Windows 7 x64 are the usual ones: Security Only, S&Q Rollup and IE11 Security, plus several .NET patches. I am certainly not installing any of that for at least several weeks. (Group B, already fully patched through July (except for the .NET updates) and without problems).

      Also: why is it that there are no patches for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 7?

      Thats because MicroSoft, in it’s infinite wisdom, keeps Windows 10 in a constant state of broken by either applying more layers of lipstick on the W10 pig or changing the color of the lipstick already applied.

      Running 1709 here, just made 2 backups and might take one for the team and update. I manually update 3 machines running 1709 here, 2 haven’t been online in a few months so I haven’t bothered updating them. Typing this from the most current build here, 16299.492 (June 2018). I did install the July and August Flash updates as Flash is a scary security hole IMO.

      Question: Since I skipped the July CU update, do I need to install the July servicing stack update KB4339420 before the August CU KB4343897?

      Windows Update MiniTool is also offering me the following plus the usual MSRT:

      1. KB4134661 (May)

      2. KB4056254 (July)

      3. KB4023057 (August)

      4. KB4295110 (August)

      I don’t think I’ll ever install #1 or #2, but could #3 and #4 be fixes if the manual CU update fails, or is it just more potential prep for 1803 upgrade?

        Yes, I would install the servicing stack first and reboot.

        The other four, according to my notes, are aimed at resetting your update settings and upgrading you. Susan covered the last two in this post. If I were you – I wouldn’t.

          Thanks, that’s what I figured. I only moved from 7 to 10 this year, manually installing servicing stack updates and cumulative updates is kinda new to me. My internet is very slow with a small allowance, it’s easier to download the full CU on my phone once and install manually on each machine one at a time. As the CU size grows each month, the next version upgrade (1803) becomes more tempting. I could use the Deltas but with superseded CU’s and delayed patching it’s not worth it. I’m sooo glad I don’t have to maintain a WSUS for Windows 10, that must be painful.

          As for the other 4, that’s also what I figured. Those are the Windows 10 version of 7’s WinX prep updates. While I’m not really scared of 1803, I’ll do it when I’m ready to spare the expected downtime for troubleshooting. I’m also waiting until I can download the ISO on my phone from somewhere like windowsiso.net, the MediaCreationTool will never work with my home internet.

          Thanks again, will report results after installing the August 1709 updates, hopefully by tomorrow.

        Please let us know how it works out if you update.  Fingers crossed.

        One other question, how do you get Windows 10 to install multiple KB’s?  Do they show as separate updates in your WUpdater?  Or are you planning a manual install?

        Thx

          I check for them with Windows Update MiniTool, select the “Update Support URL” link which goes to the relevant support.microsoft.com address, go down to the Microsoft Update Catalog link, download the update flavor for my PC (Windows 10 1709 for 64 bit), and install manually the MSU from an elevated command prompt like this:

          wusa LOCATION-OF-MSU:\NAME-OF-UPDATE.msu

          LOCATION-OF-MSU = D (in my case)

          NAME-OF-UPDATE = that should be obvious. I did learn you don’t have to type it all out though, just “wusa D:\” then start hitting shift until the file you want appears, it goes round-robin through each file/folder in the fist specified location (D:\).

          However, in this case, Windows Update MiniTool did not list the July servicing stack, and I don’t really know if it installs a Delta update like WU or a full CU as I’ve not used it for CU installs. I’ve done manual CU installs since moving to 10. One machine here is still Win7, group A but delayed until under MSDEFCON 1, which uses WU the “normal” way.

            That’s not how I actually DL the KB’s, but it’s my advice if your home/business internet is better than mine. I “Google” the KB on my phone and download it from Microsoft Update Catalog, move it to USB, and the rest is the same.

            Wow, so many typo’s and grammar errors, but the important thing is it’s TAB not Shift to scroll through the folders and executables when using command prompt.

            Anyways, I’m up to date (1709 build 16299.611) and nothing is worse than before, but I haven’t tested much really, just came back to post I’m not BSOD and correct my previous post mistakes.

            What’s the cutoff on this forum for editing a post, 10 minutes?

            Edit: Update: after installing the SS KB4339420 and CU KB4343897, Windows Update MiniTool no longer offers KB4295110 which I didn’t hide, want, or install. That’s odd and somewhat troubling, not sure if WU or WUMT is too blame.

      The big bumer is the security patch for MS SQL Server offered by Windows Update, but available only to SQL Server 2016/2017. The CVE page (https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-us/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2018-8273) claims that SQL versions not listed are no longer supported.

      Note If your SQL Server version number is not represented in the table below, your SQL Server version is no longer supported. Please upgrade to the latest Service Pack or SQL Server product in order to apply this and future security updates.

      Well! SQL Server 2014 SP2 support ends in 2024 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search/1044).

      I have some issues with Task Scheduler. As a part of the long list of checks and tests trying to get it working, I noticed .Net Service was not running. “What the h…”, I thought, may as well try a test installation of the updates that have been sitting in the tray for over a month. “That’s interesting”, I thought “.NET 4.7.2 is sitting there waiting to be installed”. Maybe install that first.

      After the installation and without the .NET updates Chrome started giving a ‘waiting for cache’ message and loaded nothing.

      .NET uninstalled, Chrome is back in business but I am wondering whether there’s a need to install .NET plus the updates to overcome the Chrome problems or whether it was connected with a clash between Cybereason’s RansomFree and ZoneAlarm’s Anti-Ransomware. I don’t recall installing the latter (must have gone in as part of the package). this was discovered by a warning it would be affected by the uninstall of .NET.

      Patch Lady Susan here with a late Tuesday evening update to this post:  Microsoft has updated the known issues section and removed the sections about the .NET/COM errors that were listed in July.  In my early testing I haven’t seen side effects but I will be doing more testing/more watching.  So for now hang loose and test and wait.  Clearly they messed up the documentation in this month’s release and copied and pasted the text from July’s releases.   The only known issues left are the ones with Exchange (make sure you install with admin rights) and the missing OEM note in Windows 7 (shown below).  In ALL of my Windows 7 testing I have had zero issues and my understanding this network interface problem is limited to VMware (virtual machine) installs.  Thus I don’t anticipate that we will see this on normal machines.

      Windows 10. Updated and so far no issues.

      In this MS world of never-ending change and upheaval, it is good to see that one thing is constant and reliable – W10 will have the most vulnerabilities.

      It kinda makes sense. Microsoft has more resources and tools now to find vulnerabilities. It’s better for the user that a vulnerability is discovered by Microsoft (be them 100 or 200) than a vulnerability be discovered by a malicious person.

      Overall, I feel this makes Windows 10 actually more secure.

      I’m a member of a newly created group of engineers and scientists to do professional ad-hoc scientific studies for the public good. During our meeting last night, the decision was taken to use LibreOffice. Microsoft’s recent history played a decisive role in this decision. This was cinched when one of our members clicked the “Contact Us” on the Microsoft Support page and got a “404 Error”.

      Our group decision will not affect Microsoft in any way.

      Microsoft has got to stop inflicting these poor-quality updates and turning their backs on their clients. The “404 Error” perfectly describes Microsoft in quality and support – absent.

      752 megabytes!

      Took about 5 minutes for the Windows Update to bring the system up to date. All went well, smooth as silk.

      Fitness testing for my use (desktop software development, business management) has turned up no problems.

      I didn’t see it mentioned, but these updates reportedly fix 2 zero day vulnerabilities.  So, that aspect will need to be tossed into the calculus in deciding whether to update.

      I have been unable to install KB4339420.  Anyone else?  Windows 10 x64 Enterprise Edition.

      I have deleted the Software Distribution folder no change.

      Also ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter no change.

      Error code is 0x800f0922

        There is some confusion here.

        KB4343909 in your post above is the 2018-8 CU for Win10 v 1803

        KB4339420 in the second post is the 2018-7 servicing stack for Win10 v 1709

        Windows 10 x64 Enterprise Edition.

        You don’t say which version of Win10 you are running.
        If you are running v1803, KB4339420 will not install b/c it is the wrong version.

            KB4343909 is not available for Win10 v1803 running any TLS 1.2 apps because of a problem in the .Net patches included. See this post.

            You need to get your info in order and be more complete in your description. A bona fide expert has tried to help you and you have repeatedly refused to give any more useful information.

            EXACTLY what KB did you try to install into EXACTLY what Windows version? The bitness matters too (32 bit or 64 bit).

            EXACTLY what went wrong? Give a blow by blow description of how you initiated the update, what you saw in what order, and where it listed that error code.

            The EXACT version you’re running matters if you’re trying to install a KB yourself from the catalog.

            Why are you intent on installing this update while Woody’s MS-DEFCON level is at 2?

            Finally… You say you’re running Enterprise. What does your IT organization say about installing these updates?

      I am running Win 7 Professional 32-bit.  I have always installed the patches as soon as they are released.  And I have never had problems with a quick install.  This month I held back on KB4345590 (.NET) and KB4343900 (Win 7) to see what would be reported here.  I did install an  MSE definition update and the monthly MRT.exe .  The only problem I had was this: Windows Update tells me that it is creating a restore point and then does not tell me when the patches are being installed.  I could tell from the Task Manager when MRT was running and when it had ended.  And I have a script to parse the c:\windows\window~1.log file to tell me when the MSE definition updates are installed.  I keep a manual log of all changes I make to the machine.  At 12:09 the MSE update was installed, and at 12:18 the MRT.exe started running.   At 15:11 the Windows Update window still had the status “Creating restore point..”, and I had to click on “Stop installation”.  I knew that MRT had already finished.  I have no idea why Windows Update did not finish and tell me that I still had two Important updates to install.

      Hi,

      First time user here. I would appreciate if you could help me with my Windows Update issue.

      I am unable to install the monthly quality rollups on my Windows 7 Premium Home SP1 32 bit PC. The July updates 4338818 and 4338821 didn’t install and neither has the August one KB 4343900. I always get Error 8000FFFF. I am able to install all other .net and Microsoft Office updates without any issues.

      I have already run SFC and CHKDISK with no errors. Also the Windows Update troubleshooter which fixed issues. I am unable to install the System Update Readiness tool for some reason though. I have also tried to install the quality rollups manually by downloading them from the Microsoft website and install the msu, but the same error pops up. I have also tried to install the rollup after doing a clean boot but to no avail.

      I would really appreciate if you could help me and provide a solution to this issue. Thanks in advance.
