Fix for VB6, VBA, VBScript bug?

Windows Update[German]On August 16, 2019, Microsoft released updated updates for Windows to fix issues with VB6, VBA, and VBScript. On August 17, and 19, 2019 more updates for Windows 10 has been released.


What's the point?

With the updates of August 13, 2019, Microsoft cut VBScript support in Internet Explorer. A short time later, users noticed issues with Visual Basic support (VB6, VBA and VBScript). Corresponding modules caused errors in certain constellations. I had mentioned this in the blog post August 2019 Updates: Issues with VB6, VBA and VBScript.

Microsoft releases new Updates

Blog reader EP has left this comment (thank you) mentions that Microsoft released updated updates for Windows on August 16, 2019 which are supposed to fix the issues with VB6, VBA and VBScript.

For other Windows 10 builds (1809, 1903) Microsoft has partially released new updates on August 17, 2019 with VBA fixes.

Addendum: On August 19 2019 Microsoft also released an update for Windows 10, that fixed the VB6, VBA and VBScript issue.

Now the updates for Windows 10 Version 1903 is still missing. Note also the known issues documented within the linked support articles. I also received user feedback, that the issue isn't completely fixed.

      1903 users will now get the VB fixes only in the RP ring 8/21 with KB4512941 (build 18362.325). it may get a public release either by the end of this week or the start of next week.

    In some scenarios this breaks Printing from 32bit Applications…

    To Easily Reproduce:

    Launch 32bit Notepad
    Attempt to Print

    The process sits and spins, killing splwow64 brings him back but that doesn't help us.
