On March 27th Microsoft Adds a VBScript Prerequisite to a March 13th Rollup that Caused Pains for VMware Customers

Today, Microsoft has added a prerequisite to a rollup that it released two weeks ago.  At the time, the update was causing havoc with VMware customers and virtual machines and the company eventually stopped pushing it.

More interesting, is that the prerequisite comes in the form of a VBScript that must be run after backing up a registry key.

No way. Yep, seriously. Not only is a prerequisite released two weeks after the fact (which is contrary in terms), but it comes from a company dead bent on PowerShell proliferation.

The support doc says…

Follow these steps before you apply this update to a physical computer or a virtual machine

Check out the details: March 13, 2018—KB4088875 (Monthly Rollup)

This is a rollup for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1.
