Understanding the known issues for any patch is important and can minimize the time for testing and help customers make quicker decisions whether or not to deploy a specific update.
The rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 comes with a couple interesting gotchas:
Problem: If a machine has more than one monitor connected and the screen numbering is not in sequence, some applications will experience rendering issues.
Fix: Enable Desktop Composition (needs graphics card support) and then make sure that the main monitor is on the top left in the monitor layout.
Problem: The WordPad application can sometimes crash on launch after installing KB4025341.
Fix: None yet.
Microsoft apparently believed these known issues are most likely for a minor subset of customers, but there are a growing number of reported instances where these actually matter.
