KB4503277 and KB4503283 for Windows 7 and 8.1 released

Microsoft released two update previews for the company's Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems on June 20, 2019.

 

The updates are also available for Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 and can either be downloaded directly from the Microsoft Update Catalog website or as an optional update through Windows Update.

 

Please note that the updates are considered previews; in other words, they should be considered beta releases. It is advised to stay clear of them until a device is affected by one of the fixed issues or if you want to take the updates for a test drive. Both updates are non-security updates.

KB4503277 "includes improvements and fixes that were part of KB4503292" according to Microsoft's update description.

 

The release notes list the following changes:

  • Fixed an issue that caused Internet Explorer 11 to stop working when Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) markers are opened or interacted with.

The only known issue listed is the incompatibility with certain McAfee Enterprise products that may slow down the system start or make the system unresponsive altogether.

KB4503283 "includes improvements and fixes that were part of KB4503283" according to Microsoft's update description.

 

The release notes list the following changes:

  • All changes fixed by the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 update.
  • Fixed an issue that caused the user interface to appear frozen during scroll operations (in windows with many child windows).
  • Addressed a reliability issue in Windows (which Microsoft did not reveal anything about other than that it is a reliability issue)

Microsoft confirms two known issues, both of which not new. The systems are affected by the same McAfee software issue as the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems are. The second issue is the longstanding issue on Cluster Shared Volumes that makes certain operations fail with the error "STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)".

 

New Internet Explorer cumulative update as well

 

Woody Leonhard notes that Microsoft released a new cumulative Internet Explorer update for the client operating systems Windows 7 and 8.1, and the Server operating systems Windows Server 2008 R2 and 2012 R2 as well recently.

  1. Addressed an issue that caused Internet Explorer 11 to stop working when it opened or interacted with Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) markers, including Power BI line charts with markers.

The cumulative update is available on Microsoft's Update Catalog website.
