Update KB3186987 for Windows 10 fixes printing issue

[German]Microsoft has released last Friday (August 19, 2016) another cumulative Update KB3186987, but only for Windows 10 (RTM) and Windows 10 Enterprise LTBS. It's the long awaited fix for printing issues.


Update KB3186987 (Cumulative update for Windows 10: August 19, 2016) is only avaible for Windows 10 RTM (Build 10240) and for Windows 10 Enterprise LTBS (which is the same build). This update fixes the printing issues caused by a patch, described in security bulletin MS16-098). I've blogged about that incident in my post Printing issues with Microsoft Security Patch MS16-098. Printing more that 2 jobs doesn't works after installing KB3176492 (released August 9, 2016) in Windows 10 (RTM). Also many commercial software wasn't able to print multi page jobs.

Microsoft has confirmed that issue in all KB articles referencing security bulletin MS16-098 – and I wrote, that a patch will be available at September patch day (09/13/2016). Not it seems, that Microsoft found a fix for Windows 10 RTM with Update KB3186987. They wrote:

This cumulative update fixes an issue in which you can't print more than two documents in succession after you apply cumulative update 3176492.

The update is on a fresh Windows 10 machine 370 MB (32 bit) and 788 MB (64 bit) in size. I haven't found till yet corresponding update packages for older Windows versions nor for Windows 10 Version 1511 and Version 1607.
