KB4512514 (Preview Monthly Rollup) Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

Update KB4512514 (Preview Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) contains improvements and bug fixes that will be rolled out in the following month. Only two small changes are listed in the KB article.

  • Addresses an issue that causes the svchost.exe that hosts the WSMan Service (WsmSvc) to stop working and stops other services in the same host process. This issue occurs when you run multiple instances of Windows Remote Management (WinRM).
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent devices from starting when they start up using Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). The error is, “Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed.”

Although the WDS PXE startup problem has been fixed, there may be a 0xc0000428 startup error on systems with this error. Microsoft has re-released update KB4474419 to resolve this issue. Furthermore, the problems with Symantec/Norton are mentioned (there are no updates there). In addition, VBScript may not be disabled in Internet Explorer 11 as expected. Microsoft describes in the KB article the steps how to deactivate this. 

The update is provided through Windows Update and the Microsoft Update Catalog. Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest Servicing Stack Update (SSU) before installing it. But since it is a preview update, I would hide it.

Update KB4512478 is available for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 as Preview of Monthly Rollup. This is not a security update. The preview rollup addresses the following issues:

  • Addresses an issue in which the memory usage of LSASS continues to grow until it is necessary to restart the system.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause rdpdr.sys to stop responding or stop working (0x18, 0x50, 0xa, 0x27, 0x133). This issue occurs when Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) clients use a redirected drive on the local system.
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent devices from starting when they start up using Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) images from Windows Deployment Services (WDS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM). The error is, “Status: 0xc0000001, Info: A required device isn’t connected or can’t be accessed.”

The update is provided through Windows Update and the Microsoft Update Catalog. Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest Servicing Stack Update (SSU) before installing it. But since it is a preview update, I would hide it. Microsoft only reports one known problem in article KB4512478 – certain file operations fail on Cluster Shared Volume (CSV).
