Changelog for update KB4041691 Windows 10 version 1607
Key changes include:
An issue has been fixed where the Universal CRT caused the linker (exe) to stop working on large projects.
Fixed an issue with form submissions in Internet Explorer.
The issue with rendering a graphics element in Internet Explorer has been removed.
An issue has been resolved with docking and undocking Internet Explorer windows.
The issue caused by a pop-up window in Internet Explorer is settled now in this update.
The issue has been fixed where a vendor API deleted data unexpectedly.
An issue has addressed where SD propagation stops working when you manually trigger Security Descriptor propagation (SDPROP) by setting the RootDse attribute “FixupInheritance”to 1. After setting this attribute, SD propagation and permissions changes made on Active Directory objects don’t propagate to child objects. No errors are logged.
Access violation in LSASS that occurs during startup of domain controller role conditions has been fixed. A race condition causes the violation when account management calls occur while the database is refreshing internal metadata. A password reset or change is one of the management calls that may trigger this problem. These problems have been sorted out.
An issue where USBHUB.SYS randomly causes memory corruption that results in random system crashes that are extremely difficult to diagnose, has been fixed.
The issue where the “ServerSecurityDescriptor”registry value does not migrate when you upgrade to Windows 10 1607. As a result, users might not be able to add a printer using the Citrix Print Manager service. Additionally, they might not be able to print to a client redirected printer, a Citrix universal print driver, or a network printer driver using the Citrix universal print driver, has been resolved.
Security updates have given to Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Microsoft Edge, Windows Authentication, Windows TPM, Device Guard, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Microsoft Windows DNS, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Server, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.
