Update KB4051034 for Windows 7

Update KB4051034 (Preview of Monthly Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 und Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) contains fixes and improvements from previous Rollup and addresses the following improvements:

  • Addressed issue where smart card logons fail after the authenticating domain controller (DC) has been restarted. The error is: “Signing in with a smart card isn’t supported for your account…”. The authenticating DC logs KDC event 19 and Kerberos Distribution event 29 in the System event log. The log states that a suitable certificate cannot be found for smart card logons.

  • Addressed issue where local policy updates made by 32-bit applications such as Configmgr fail to apply on 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 computers that installed KB3125574 and its related updates. This occurs because changes are written to the incorrect path %windir%\Syswow64\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol instead of to %windir%\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\registry.pol.

  • Addressed delays when accessing shared Microsoft Office documents from a remote network drive. Files open, but accessing and saving files are affected. Access delays increase dramatically with increased file size.
  • Addressed issue that impacted some Epson SIDM (Dot Matrix) and TM (POS) printers, which were failing to print on x86 and x64-based systems. This issue affects KB4048957.

There is a known issue with this update:

  • After installing this KB, Internet Explorer 11 users who use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) may not be able to scroll through a drop-down menu using the scroll bar. Microsoft provides a workaround (use the scroll wheel on a mouse or change the document mode to 10 (see).

This is an optional update, I would hide this patch.
