Known Issues for Windows Security Updates for May 2018

As has been the case for a while, Microsoft delivers its OS updates already knowing that there are potential gotchas included. This month, you can expect the following…

Windows 10 version 1709 – KB4103727 (OS Build 16299.431) – Some non-English platforms may display the following string in English instead of the localized language: ”Reading scheduled jobs from file is not supported in this language mode.” This error appears when you try to read the scheduled jobs you’ve created and Device Guard is enabled.

Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 – KB4103718 (Monthly Rollup) and KB4103712 (Security-only update) – A stop error occurs on computers that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2).

For both known issues, Microsoft is already working on fixes.

For those things that are unknown gotchas this month, stay tuned. Monthly patching can sometimes be a roller coaster ride.
