I’ve blogged about update KB3176934 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update at Updates KB3176934,KB3176935 and KB3176936 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update. This update fixes some issues, also in PowerShell – and most important, the Hyper-V bug mentioned in my blog post Windows 10 V1607: Hyper-V/Bitlocker/DeviceGuard as upgrade stopper.

But update KB3176934 breaks the PowerShell. Microsoft has added the two items to its KB article

Known issues in this update

Issue 1

After you apply this update and then start a remote Windows PowerShell session, the functionality to import a module (implicit remoting) no longer works. For more information, see the following Windows PowerShell Blog article:

PowerShell DSC and implicit remoting broken in KB3176934

Issue 2

After you apply this update, PowerShell Desired State Configuration no longer works. Users will receive an “Invalid Property” error message when they run any DSC operation. For more information, see the following Windows PowerShell Blog article:

PowerShell DSC and implicit remoting broken in KB3176934

Both links are pointing to this PowerShell blog article, where a Microsoft developer explains the the issue [DSC-PowerShell-Operationen (DSC = “Desired State Configuration“) and remote operation are broken]. Microsoft recommends to uninstall update KB3176934 using the command prompt:

wusa /uninstall /kb:3176934

or block the update in WSUS. After uninstalling, administrators needs to block further installs of this update via group policies (Microsoft addresses this issue only for business users, not for users running Windows 10 Home Anniversary Update). Details may be found in this PowerShell blog article. Microsoft also promised a fix until August 30, 2016.
