[German]Here is a short collection of issues with updates KB4522015, KB4522016 etc. and KB4517211 released for Windows 10, which were reported by users here in the blog or by affected persons on the Internet.
The updates KB4522015, KB4522016 and KB4517211 were released by Microsoft in the last days of September 2019 (see my articles Windows: Vulnerabilities in IE and Defender (09/23/2019) for KB4522015, KB4522016 etc. and Windows 10 V1903: Update KB4517211 released (09/26/2019) for KB4517211). The IE updates were only available in the Microsoft Update Catalog as of 24.9.2019, but have now been added to WSUS. Update KB4517211 was even tested with insiders for Windows 10 V1903 and V1909 before release.
.Net 3.5 install issues with IE update KB4522015/016 etc.
Within the support article for the updates (e.g. update KB4522016) as well as in the Windows 10 V1903 status page I found nothing about the issues outlined below. But the Internet Explorer security updates like KB4522015, KB4522016 etc. (i.e. all packages I described in the article Windows: Vulnerabilities in IE and Defender (09/23/2019)) may seem to cause issues when installing .NET Framework 3.5, resulting in consequential errors when installing programs that rely on .NET 3.5.
KB4522015: Trouble with SAP software requiring .NET 3.5
The problem with the out-of-band security update KB4522015 was first brought to my attention by blog reader Markus K. who postet it in an admin group.
might be interesting for those of you using SAP which requires .NET 3.5.
After short testing today I decided to release KB4522015 into production (WSUS).
Shortly after that newly installed machines which also should install SAP client failed installing .NET 3.5 which is a prerequisite.
After the release of update KB4522015 for Windows 10 V1809 via WSUS Markus had to find out that SAP software clients could no longer be installed: Cause: The required .NET Framework 3.5 cannot be installed. Its installation fails with the error:
As soon as he uninstalls the update KB4522015, the installation of the SAP client with the required .NET 3.5 works again.
Askwoody reported the same for KB4522016
At the same time I saw on askwoody.com that the same problems with update KB4522016 are reported there. This is the IE security update for Windows 10 version 1903. In the askwoody.com forum a user was able to reproduce the installation problem during a test.
I’m guessing that the .NET Framework 3.5 problem is affected in all IE security updates described in the article Windows: Vulnerabilities in IE and Defender (09/23/2019).
Printer issues with Update KB4517211?
German blog reader Kay left this comment within my blog. He reports, that all printers are gone after installing Windows 10 Version 1903 update KB4517211.
Hello – for info: Problem with printers after installation
today (27.9. at 05:07) I downloaded and distributed the KB4517211 for Windows 10 19.03 x64 via WSUS server.
After the installation on a client PC all programs including Office reported “No printer installed” (not even the Windows internal ones – in “Devices and Printers” all printers are grayed out) – but the web interfaces of the printers were accessible via browser (status ok).
In addition, the message “Print spooler service does not run” was displayed – manual start of the service was not successful either.
The only solution was: Reset share on WSUS and uninstall KB4517211 on client. Now everything prints as usual.
But this could be an isolated case, because so far I haven’t found a single hit on the Internet. On the other hand Microsoft patched the print routines with update KB4517211. It’s quite possible that something broke.
At askwoody.com Woody Leonhard reports about a case where the above mentioned IE security update KB4522016 leads to a HP printer not being able to print anymore. Uninstalling the update fixes the problem. Addendum: I got now several confirmation about the printing issues, see my blog post Windows10 V1903: Update KB4517211 causes printer issues.
More issues with Update KB4517211?
- There are several reports (e.g. here) that the update KB4517211 breaks the Cortana search.
- There are also reports that Windows Defender scanning is disabled after the update is installed.
- There is also a thread within the Dell forum, reporting that the update breaks the Alienware Sound Center (A-Volute).
Can any of you confirm these issues or is there a solution (other than uninstalling the update)?
