  • Win7 Monthly Rollup KB 4022719 triggers printing problems in Internet Explorer

    EverWilli, posting on the Microsoft Answers forum, describes a problem with the latest Win7 Monthly Rollup, KB 4022719:

    After installing KB4022719 our users cannot print certain items from Internet Explorer 11. If a users opens a page in a *frame and attempts to print they only get a blank page.

    We have tired all the basic fixes,   resetting IE, cleaning temp files, printer files, checking for a low folder but the only solution at this time is to  uninstall KB4022719.   Thus far we have only uninstalled on 2 pc’s with the issue and that fixed the printing on both machines.

    There are now reported sightings of the bug with the Win7 Monthly Rollup KB 4022719, as well as the standalone IE security patch KB 4021558.

    Only solution so far is to roll back the security patch.

    UPDATE: The problem now appears on the Edge Developer’s forum, marked by Microsoft as “Won’t Fix.” More than a few people are aghast. It’s not clear if that’s Microsoft response to a bug of its own creation – or if it’s an indicator that the Edge folks really don’t care much about IE 11.
