Update KB3186988 for Windows 10 Version 1511 printing issues?

[German]Microsoft has released at August 30, 2016a cumulative update KB3186988 for Windows 10 Version 1511. I guess, it also contains the fix for the Windows printing issue, caused by MS16-089.


The description of update KB3186988 (CRITSIT- CATALOG ONLY – Cumulative Update for Windows 10 1511 – KB 3186988 – 2016.08 OOB) is compact – again:

This update includes improvements and fixes to enhance the functionality of Windows 10.
Windows 10 updates are cumulative. Therefore, this package contains all previously-released fixes (see KB 3081444).
If you have installed previous updates, only the new fixes that are contained in this package will be downloaded and installed to your computer. If you are installing a Windows 10 update package for the first time, the package for the x86 version is 514 MB, and the package for the x64 version is 902 MB.

This update is only for Windows 10 Version 1511 and will be shipped via Windows Update. After installing, Windows 10 build is changed to 10586.550. The improvement and fixes link doesn't contains details for this update yet. But I would say, the update will fix the Windows 10 printing issue caused by MS16-089, because a fix was vaguely announced at end of August 2016 or on September patch day. Fixes for Windows 10 RTM and Windows 7/8.1 has been released already. Addendum: It seems that Woody Leonhard has the same thoughts.

Update: It fixes the printing issue as Microsoft wrote in KB3186988 (Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511: August 30, 2016).

This cumulative update fixes an issue in which you can't print more than two documents in succession after you apply cumulative update 3176493.
