Known Issues with March 2018 Updates for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

Problems that Microsoft missed during patch QA are usually uncovered by customers. But, in some cases, Microsoft warns customers about potential issues they have uncovered prior to release, but decide to release the updates anyway while they work on a fix.

This month, there’s a few issues for both the Security-only update and the Monthly Roll-up for¬†Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

  • After installing this update, SMB servers may leak memory. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
  • A Stop error occurs if this update is applied to a 32-Bit (x86) machine with the Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode disabled. Microsoft is working on fixing this issue, and this update is, therefore, currently made available to machines with the Physical Address Extension (PAE) mode enabled.
  • A Stop error occurs on machines that don’t support Streaming Single Instructions Multiple Data (SIMD) Extensions 2 (SSE2). Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
