[German]On June 18, 2020, Microsoft released the next batch of Out-of-band updates to fix the printer issues that occurred after installing the June 2020 patchday updates in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 – including its server counterparts.
I had mentioned it in the blog post Windows 10: Printer issues after June 2020 Updates. The cumulative security updates released on June 9, 2020 for various Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 versions as well as the corresponding server versions cause serious printing issues for many users.
Microsoft confirmed the printing issue on the status page of Windows 10 version 2004 for all cumulative security updates for Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 and the server counterparts. I had pointed out the first unscheduled updates for Windows 10 versions 1803 through 1909 in the blog post Windows 10: Out-of-band update to fix printer issues.
Further updates for the Print Bug
Blog reader EP has posted a comment in the blog about further released optional updates to fix the printer bug. Microsoft says within the update description:
Addresses an issue that might prevent certain printers from printing. The print spooler might generate an error or close unexpectedly when attempting to print, and no output will come from the affected printer. You might also encounter issues with the apps you are attempting to print from, such as receiving an error, or the app might close unexpectedly. This issue might also affect software-based printers, such as when printing to PDF.
So the bug that crashes the printer queue and prevents printing should be removed. In addition to Part I, correction updates for the outstanding Windows versions from the above list have now been released.
