Updates for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

For Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, a rollup and a security-only update have been released. The update history for Windows 7 can be found on this Microsoft page.

KB4486563 (Monthly Rollup) for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

Update KB4486563 (Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) contains improvements and bug fixes that were already included in last month’s update. The update addresses the following:

  • Addresses an issue that may prevent applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 97 file format from opening. This issue occurs if the database has column names greater than 32 characters. The database fails to open with the error, “Unrecognized Database Format”.
  • Adds top-level domain support to HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) Preload for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.
  • Security updates to Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Graphics, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Server, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.

It fixes the Microsoft Jet Database Engine access bug on Access 97 databases from January 2019. This update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update. The package is also available through Microsoft Update Catalog. Installation requires that the latest SSU is already installed.

As a known issue, Microsoft states, “After you install this update, virtual machines (VMs) may not be successfully restored if the VM was previously saved and restored. The error message is: “The virtual machine state could not be restored: This virtual machine cannot be restored because the stored state data cannot be read. Delete the saved state data and then try to start the virtual machine. (0xC0370027)”.

This concerns the AMD Bulldozer Family 15h, the AMD Jaguar Family 16h and the AMD Puma Family 16h (second generation) microarchitectures. After installing this update, shut down the virtual machines before restarting the host. Microsoft is working on a solution and estimates that a solution will be available by mid-February 2019..
