Windows 10: Issues with May 2017 update KB3150513

Microsoft has released update KB3150513 several times in May 2017 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) . But it seems, that this update is causing issues on some user machines with Outlook and OneNote 2016, MalwareBytes 3.0, and TeamViewer.


Microsoft has re-released update KB3150513 for Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Version 1607) a couple of times. I’ve blogged about update KB3150513 within my article Windows 10 1607: Update KB3150513 (May 31, 2017) for instance.  This update ships the latest compatibility definition update for Windows.

Writing a quick thank you note for your article titled “Mystery update KB 3150513 makes yet another reappearance”.

It started yesterday afternoon when I couldn’t open Outlook 2016. After looking around a bit today on both my computer and the web, I noticed a new update that downloaded yesterday morning. Googling for help about the error that was showing on my system, “Cannot start microsoft outlook. Cannot open the outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened”, found no relief. But then, I came upon your aforementioned article, put two and two together, saw that I didn’t want this update on my computer and quickly uninstalled the update and voila! Outlook works. YaY!

So, I’m writing this for two reasons: 1st to say thank you for your article and blog that, unbeknownst to you until now, pointed me in the right direction to be able to once again use outlook and 2nd – in case you see others having this same issue, perhaps this bit of information from my experience will help them too before experiencing too much frustration.

Also German news site has an article, mentions, that Windows 10 Version 1607 update KB3150513 is preventing Outlook 2016 from launch. The solution: Uninstall update KB3150513 and block it from re-installing (see How to block Windows 10 updates).

OneNote 2016 error 0xE0000002

Greek blog reader Leon pointed me to this Microsoft Answers forum post. A user wrote:

I am repeatedly getting an error message in OneNote 2016. It happens every time I try to create an Outlook task from text that I’ve handwritten in OneNote. the error message continues with „occurred in the application at location 0x000000007736A882.“  I’m running the office version of OneNote 2016, on a Surface Pro 3, Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64 based Systems (KB3150513).


Leon suggests to use the OneNote Diagnostics Tool to fix this error. The error may occur also in combination with Malwarebytes 3.0 (see below). If that doesn’t helps, uninstall update KB3150513 and block further installations.

Malwarebytes 3.0 has issues

Microsoft has published this KB article at May 13, 2017, addressing another issue. Office 2013 or 2016 may hang or crashes with error 0xE0000002 in Windows 10 Creators Update if Malwarebytes 3.0 has been installed. Malwarebytes has released a fix to correct this issue.

TeamViewer crashes after Windows Update

Blog reader Leon has send me another e-mail he received from a buddy. This mail is indicating some issues with TeamViewer caused by Update KB3150513.

Running Windows 10 Pro, I am able to connect & Teamviewer runs for a while (typically 1-5 minutes) & then kicks me out, dropping the connection for no apparent reason. This has happened many times in succession, The problem seemed to start only recently in the past week or so, after recent Windows 10 updates were installed automatically by Windows Update in Microsoft. Before then, I did not have this problem. I have not installed any other new programs, can somebody help?

Also the solution is: uninstalling Update KB3150513 and block it’s installation. Hope it helps, if someone is facing one of those issues mentioned above.
