Improvements and fixes

This security update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
  • Addressed issue where applications based on the Microsoft JET Database Engine (Microsoft Access 2007 and older or non-Microsoft applications) fail when creating or opening Microsoft Excel .xls files. The error message is: “Unexpected error from external database driver (1). (Microsoft JET Database Engine)".
  • Security updates to Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows Media Player, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel, and Windows kernel-mode drivers.
For more information about the resolved security vulnerabilities, see the Security Update Guide.


Known issues in this update

Symptom
After installing KB4041681, package users may see an error dialog that indicates that an application exception has occurred when closing some applications. This can affect applications that use mshtml.dll to load web content. The failure only occurs when a process is already shutting down, and doesn't affect application functionality.

Workaround
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Symptom
After installing this KB, Internet Explorer 11 users who use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) may not be able to scroll through a drop-down menu using the scroll bar.

Workaround
Using the scroll wheel on a mouse works as expected. This issue only applies to document mode 11, so attempting to load the page with document mode 10 may work around the issue.
To change the document mode in Internet Explorer 11:
  1. Select F12.
  2. Select the Emulation tab.
  3. On the Document modemenu, select 10. The page will reload in the new document mode.
Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

There's more to it than just that. This damn update apparently hoses Windows Media Player. Specifically, WMP 12. Once the patch installs, any existing shortcut on the desktop or in the start menu is automatically deleted. When you then click on the program exe itself [located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Media Player\] it launches the program like it is brand spanking new. Any customized settings, and any library files you had associated with WMP, are long gone. Or at least that's what I discovered to my dismay. All I can say is -- thank God for System Restore!

So as it is, if I update my system with this latest Windows security patch, I lose my customized Media Player settings and my WMP library. Conversely, If I forgo the KB4048960 update to prevent this very thing, my system basically goes "unprotected". So what now Microsoft??

If anyone ends up finding a workaround to this latest patching burp, kindly post it!
