May 23, 2019 - KB4499178 (Preview of Monthly Rollup)

Applies to: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1


Starting with KB4493472 Monthly Rollup updates will no longer include PciClearStaleCache.exe. This installation utility addressees inconsistencies in the internal PCI cache. This can cause the symptoms listed below when installing monthly updates that do NOT include PciClearStaleCache:
  • Existing NIC definitions in control panel networks may be replaced with a new Ethernet Network Interface Card (NIC) but with default settings. Any custom settings on the previously NIC persist in the registry but were unused.
  • Static IP address settings were lost on network interfaces.
  • Wi-Fi profile settings were not displayed in the network flyout.
  • WIFI network adapters were disabled
These symptoms are especially common on guest virtual machines and on machines which have not been updated since March, 2018.

Administrators should ensure that any one or more of the Monthly rollups released between April 10, 2018 (KB4093118) and March 12, 2019 (KB4489878) have been installed prior to installing April 2019 and later updates. Each of these rollup updates includes PciClearStaleCache.exe.


Improvements and fixes

This non-security update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of KB4499164 (released May 14, 2019) and also includes these new quality improvements as a preview of the next Monthly Rollup update:
  • Addresses an issue to set the date separator properly in the Japanese short date format. For more information, see KB4469068.
  • Updates time zone information for Morocco.
  • Updates time zone information for the Palestinian Authority.
  • Improves performance related to case-insensitive string comparison functions such as _stricmp() in the Universal C Runtime.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause event 7600 in the Domain Name System (DNS) server event log to contain an unreadable server name.
  • Addresses an issue that causes applications built with the Universal CRT (UCRT) to receive the missing export message, “__C_specific_handler_noexcept”.
  • Addresses a rare issue that prevents fmod() from returning “-0” when expected.
