Updates for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

A preview rollup update has been released for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. The update history for Windows 7 can be found on this Microsoft page.

KB4467108 (Preview Monthly Rollup) for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

Update KB4467108 (Preview Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) contains improvements and bug fixes to be rolled out in December 2018. The update addresses the following items:

  • Addresses an issue that causes the GetCalendarInfo function to return an incorrect era name on the first day of the Japanese era.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Russian daylight standard time.
  • Addresses time zone changes for Moroccan daylight standard time.

The update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update. It can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest Service Stack Update (SSU) KB3177467 before installing the latest rollup. With Windows Update, the SSU is automatically offered before the installation. Since this is a preview rollup, I would hide KB4467108.

Note: In the KB article there is again the hint that the update has the problem that the NIC (network interface controller) does not work anymore because of a missing third party .inf file. A remedy is to reinstall the NIC via the device manager.

After you install this update, users may no longer be able to use the search bar in Windows Media Player when they play certain files. Microsoft is working on a solution to this problem.
