    Reports are spreading.

    So, anybody care to guess how Microsoft will handle this problem? We appear to have three Win10 cumulative updates and four Win7/8.1 monthly patches, all with the same bug. It’s not a big deal, unless you’re using the Active Directory Admin Center (or SCCM).

    I see a few possibilities:

    • “Patch” ADAC (which probably isn’t broken)
    • Post a manual workaround and forget about it
    • Post hotfixes for the Win10 versions, or at least 1607
    • Re-release the Win7 and 8.1 patches

    Let’s see how MS reacts.

    Thanks to Paul and MH.
