  • Microsoft releases new single-purpose patch for Win10 1703, KB 4092077, to fix a bug in an earlier patch

    Posted on March 8th, 2018 at 13:59 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    It just started rolling out. I don’t see it yet on Windows Update, but the KB article is up:

    March 8, 2018—KB 4092077 (OS Build 15063.936)

    Addresses issue where, after installing this update, some localized devices have incorrect strings or unusual behavior in different areas of the user interface (UI) that make the UI unusable.

    That appears to be something of a circular reference. No idea what the KB article means. But note that the build number for this patch, 15063.936, is the same as the build number for last month’s Win10 1703 cumulative update, February 22, 2018—KB 4077528 (OS Build 15063.936)

    Which version are you running? Your guess is as good as mine.

    More info in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    Woody already posted about these updates here, but I’ll be tracking any side effects in this post.  If there are any major issues I’m sure either I or Woody will give an update!

  • Second round of cumulative updates for Win10 1607 and 1703, plus previews, just hit

    Posted on February 22nd, 2018 at 18:19 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    From @abbodi86:

    Updates are out

    2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 (KB4077525) – that’s the second cumulative update in the past nine days for 1607

    2018-02 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 (KB4077528) – the second cumulative update in the past nine days for 1703

    2018-02 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 (KB4075212)

    2018-02 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 (KB4075211)

    2018-02 Preview of Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2012 (KB4075213)

    For security-only Win7 users, IE11 got new cumulative to fix some issue: Cumulative Update for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 (KB4088835)

    heads up for Windows 10 Version 1703
    KB4077528 is only for English (US) systems,
    other languages do not attempt to install it, because it lacks any language specific components except en-us

    this is new kind of fiasco ?

    Oh boy. Wonder why 1709 didn’t get a second cumulative update?
