As part of the March 13, patch-Tuesday package, Windows Update installed KB4088875 on my W7 systems (all physical machines...no VMs):
Apparently, it is flawed, because MS issued KB4099950 on Thursday, April 5, an out-of-band patch to fix issues caused by KB4088875:
Problem is, KB4099950 has this note (copied here under "Fair Use"):
Important This update must be installed before you install KB4088875 or KB4088878.
Of course, KB4088875 (or KB4088878) has already been installed. So, two questions:
(1) Should KB4088875 be uninstalled before installing KB4099950?
(2) If the answer to (1) is yes, should KB4088875 be reinstalled after installing KB4099950?
I've done a fair amount of web searching on this (found info such as the AskWoody thread
), but I'm mostly interested in EE members who have actually addressed this issue on their W7 systems. I found this EE thread on KB4088875:
But that was closed before KB4099950 was released, and a search at EE for KB4099950 comes up empty.
Thanks much, Joe
