• The saga of KB5012170


    I been having issue with KB5012170 — my laptop is old and does not support secure update and the boot disk is MBR

    So is used wushowhide.diagcab to hide the update — that seemed to work but the update is showing up again and is failing to install. I check with the update catalog and notices that KB5012170 is part of update 2022-12 and 2022-08 — so does wushowhide.diagcab consider KB5012170 as unique / different update for 2022-12 and 2022-08?

      It got refreshed to support Windows 11 22H2/Windows 10 22H2 so you have to hide it again.

          most likely you have an old laptop that is non-UEFI based (using traditional or legacy BIOS)

          Microsoft changed/updated the windows update “metadata” in December 2022 where KB5012170 has supported the 22H2 versions of Windows 10 & 11, so yes the wushowhide.diagcab tool needs to be used again to hide/block the new version(s) of KB5012170

            yes, that seemed to fix the issue —  why has MS  not address this issue?
