      10 am Redmond time on the third Tuesday of the month has come and gone, and… no patches. Is Microsoft messin’ with me? Or is there a deeper reason?

      Well seeing as its Microsoft its hard to say what has happened. But more then likely they are dealing with some serious issues with some of the updates or they have had to rush through additional zero day fixes which took more time to review. I’d rather not get anything then broken messed up ones that I must wait for a fix.

      If push comes to shove and we just have to hunker down and skip a month, I think I’m okay with that. I know its still too soon to tell if this will be the case, but given what this months patches have turned into I would almost prefer it.

      Well, MS has been consistently disappointing with their handling of Win 10 updates/upgrades. so what’s new?

      I’ve also been wondering where the preview updates have been. It’s very bizarre. But I never install the preview rollups for Windows 7 or 8.1, so it makes little difference to me. But still strange how we haven’t seen them this month though.

      Don’t be so impatient on a week with a holiday, Woody.

      From Windows 10 update servicing cadence:

      The “C” and “D” releases occur the third and fourth weeks of the month, respectively.

      There’s nothing there about it having to be on a Tuesday.  For example, back in August 2018, the quality update didn’t come out until Thursday August 30th.

      As a home user I never took the previews.  Nothing ever happened as a result.

      Another “anomaly” – KB4487256 2019-02 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for .NET 3.5.1, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7, 4.7.1 Windows 7 was the .NET preview that was available in mid-February.  I expected a monthly .NET patch to be released on Patch Tuesday in March.  But there was no .NET patch in March nor in April.  Are there problems with this patch?

      sorry, wrong guess 🙂 the update has been released in March 2019 as an update not rollup:

      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4489486/updates-for-net-framework-3-5-1-to-4-7-2

      with an option of .net 3.5.1 standalone @ m$ catalogue:

      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4488662/description-of-the-update-for-net-framework

      on the other hand it wasn’t offered thru win7 update center… then it looks nothing new comparing to feb2019 rollup preview… maybe except some minor changes concerning the Japanese Era formatting 🙂

      p.s. I agree – where this d*** preview of apr2019! maybe yet to repairing all around of the multiple antivirus issues found, huh? 🙂

      p.p.s. Well I appreciate you kind up-to-rules editing… Although it gives no changes to the basics of askwoody com. The recent commercialize approach is beyond any questions. It’s ok naturally. Also the almost total switch to discuss win10 mainly. However there are a long number of m$ recent troubles to discuss in maybe attempt to find any solution – for instance…. Well, sorry it sounds like old sake Playboy Party jokes entries…. So haven’t you heard…. that M$ Skype now ver.8 cuts the visible conversations history acquired thru maybe long years use of any earlier ver. of Skype to the max of some 2 years? Too bad.

      p.p.p.s. shall I subscribe to the higher ver. of askwoody com to avoid minor login difficulties @ some askwoody web pages?

        You shouldn’t have minor logon difficulties on any page, regardless of whether you’re a Plus member or not.

        Anonymous posters have to pass a CAPTCHA check because of the volume of bot-submitted posts, and all anonymous posts are vetted by a moderator, but the rest should be the same for everyone.

        We have changes coming — soon — that’ll restrict access to the newest Plus Newsletters and Patch Lists. You’ll have to be a Plus member to get to the latest two or three of those, but other than that, there should be no difference between anonymous, registered Lounger, and Plus member.
