  • Windows Monthly Rollup Previews are out

    Full update in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    KB 4284842 – the Win7 Monthly Rollup preview — doesn’t seem to have much. Just like the other Win7 patches this month, it inherits the bug

    There is an issue with Windows and a third-party software that is related to a missing file (oem<number>.inf). Because of this issue, after you apply this update, the network interface controller will stop working.

    and of course there’s no mention of which third-party software.

    KB 4284863 – the Win8.1 July Monthly Rollup preview — is a tad longer but, again, doesn’t seem to cover much.

    Of course you should avoid both.
