  1. The Jet database issue has been resolved for all versions of Windows:

     

    For Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1:

     

    KB4048957 - November 14, 2017—KB4048957 (Monthly Rollup)

     

    For Windows 8 and Server 2012:

     

    KB4048959 - November 14, 2017—KB4048959 (Monthly Rollup)

     

    For Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2:

     

    KB4048958 - November 14, 2017—KB4048958 (Monthly Rollup)

     

    For Windows 10 version 1507 (initial version released July 2015):

     

    KB4048956 - November 14, 2017—KB4048956 (OS Build 10240.17673)

     

    For Windows 10 version 1511:

     

    KB4052232 - November 2, 2017—KB4052232 (OS Build 10586.1177)

     

    NOTE: KB4052232 is the last update for Windows 10 version 1511 that applies to all of its editions (Education, Enterprise, Home, and Pro). Starting with the November 14, 2017 update (KB4048952), which also includes the fix, only Windows 10 version 1511 Enterprise and Windows 10 version 1511 Education editions will be able to install updates:

     

    KB4048952 - November 14, 2017—KB4048952 (OS Build 10586.1232)

     

    Editorial: This is just the latest headache coming out of Microsoft. You would think that after the LIVING HELL Microsoft put people through with Windows 10, they would AT THE VERY LEAST support the garbage they force-fed customers for as long as they need it. Microsoft's Windows 10 as a Service model is nothing more than another way to screw customers over.

     

    For Windows 10 version 1607 and Server 2016:

     

    KB4048953 - November 14, 2017—KB4048953 (OS Build 14393.1884)

     

    A new Servicing Stack update was released concurrently with this update:

     

    KB4049065 - Servicing stack update for Windows 10 Version 1607 and Windows Server 2016: November 14, 2017

     

    If you need to download and install this update manually because Windows Update isn't working properly, make sure you download and install the Servicing Stack update first.

     

    For Windows 10 version 1703:

     

    KB4048954 - November 14, 2017—KB4048954 (OS Build 15063.726 and 15063.728)

     

    A new Servicing Stack update was released concurrently with this update:

     

    KB4049011 - Servicing stack update for Windows 10 Version 1703: November 14, 2017

     

    If you need to download and install this update manually because Windows Update isn't working properly, make sure you download and install the Servicing Stack update first.

     

    For Windows 10 version 1709 and Server 2016 version 1709:

     

    KB4048955 - November 14, 2017—KB4048955 (OS Build 16299.64)

  2. Once in a while, Microsoft releases a fix that addresses an issue that has plagued Windows users for years. This is one such fix.

     

    There was in issue in USBHUB.SYS that randomly caused memory corruption and could result in random system crashes. As USB devices are ubiquitous, virtually all Windows users may be affected by it at one time or another. The symptom you observe when it happens is that Windows just destabilizes and/or crashes for no apparent reason.

     

    NOTE: Please familiarize yourself with the Known issues in each of these updates before installing them. I can tell you that the workaround for the Jet database issue, affecting Access 2007's ability to work with Excel files, works.

     

    Editorial: In my view, any inconvenience these updates may cause is far outweighed by the fix.

  4. I found a way to get .NET Framework 4.7 working. Here's the step-by-step method:

     

    1. Download the following updates from Microsoft Update Catalog, appropriate for your CPU architecture:

     

    For Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2:

     

    KB4032113

    KB4035510

     

    For Windows 8 / Server 2012:

     

    KB4032114

    KB4035508

     

    For Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2:

     

    KB4032115

    KB4035509

     

    2. Install KB4019990, the Update for the d3dcompiler_47.dll component on Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2

     

    For Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2, it's in the KB4032113 folder you downloaded in step 1.

    For Windows 8 / Server 2012, it's in the KB4032114 folder you downloaded in step 1.

     

    NOTE: KB4019990 is not needed for Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2.

     

    3. Download and install .NET Framework 4.7 and any language packs you may need.

     

    4. Depending on your version of Windows, install the following updates:

     

    For Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2:

    Install KB4014596 and KB4024848 from the KB4032113 folder you downloaded in step 1.

    Then install KB4035510.

     

    For Windows 8 / Server 2012:

    Install KB4014594 and KB4024846 from the KB4032114 folder you downloaded in step 1.

    Then install KB4035508.

     

    For Windows 8.1 / Server 2012 R2:

    Install KB4014598 and KB4024847 from the KB4032115 folder you downloaded in step 1.

    Then install KB4035509.

     

    That's it! You now have a working installation of .NET Framework 4.7 with no component store corruption.

  5. If you are using Windows 8.1 with .NET Framework 4.6 or 4.6.1, and you install the July, 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup for .NET Framework, you will end up with component store corruption.

     

    This corruption cannot be repaired by uninstalling the July, 2017 Preview of Quality Update and running dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth from an elevated Command Prompt (which was -- up until now -- the reliable way to roll back a .NET Framework version on Windows 8.1).

     

    I had to restore a recently-made System Image backup to return to sanity.

     

    That's now "Strike Two," when it comes to Previews of Quality Updates for .NET Framework (i.e. May, 2017 and July, 2017).

     

     

     

  6. Microsoft has now documented a bug that occurs if you install .NET Framework 4.7 after installing the .NET Framework May 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup. The documentation also provides guidance on how to proceed, depending on your situation.

     

    You can full the full article here:

     

    .NET Framework May 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup

     

    Bottom line:

     

    If you have installed the .NET Framework May 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup but not .NET Framework 4.7, Microsoft recommends you uninstall the .NET Framework May 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup.

     

    If you have installed the .NET Framework May 2017 Preview of Quality Rollup and .NET Framework 4.7, Microsoft recommends you uninstall and then re-install .NET Framework 4.7. Doing so will fix the underlying issue.

  7. Microsoft has released .NET Framework 4.7.

     

    Unforunately, it has caused stability problems for two of my clients on Windows 8.1 PCs. In one case, I had to re-format for normalcy to prevail.

     

    At this point, I am able to recommend only .NET Framework versions up to 4.6.1 (along with its hotfixes, updates, and update rollups) for machines running Windows 8.1.

     

     

    I suspect the same will turn out to be true for Windows 7 PCs.

  8. After being taken aback by how swiftly WCry (aka WannaCrypt) ransomware was able to spread to Windows machines all over the world, in an unprecedented display of common sense, Microsoft has released a security update for Windows XP to correct the vulnerability in SMBv1.

     

    To download it, simply search Microsoft Update Catalog for KB4012598.

     

    There is also a patch for Windows Server 2003 x86 and x64 editions. The patch for Windows Server 2003 x64 can be used to patch Windows XP 64-bit Edition.

  9. Was sick for over two months. Getting better now, but still haven't had the energy to update the .NET Framework or Windows 7 updates lists. Will get to it once I'm completely well again.

     

     

    As Microsoft has changed its servicing model for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1, there haven't been hotfixes to post in a while.

     

    Cheers,
