Symptom Workaround
You may face issues while opting Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) after KB4499177 installation to start a device from a WDS server which is designed to use Variable Window Extension.

By default, this prematurely terminates any WDS server which attempts to download the images. If you are not using a Variable Windows Extension, you may not receive any bugs similar to this.

There are 3 different ways that can temporarily fix this bug and they are-Option 1:

Open Command prompt as Admin then type the following and hit Enter key to execute the same.

Wdsutil /Set-TransportServer /EnableTftpVariableWindowExtension:No

Option 2: Use the Windows Deployment Services UI.

  1. Open Windows Deployment Services from Windows Administrative Tools.
  2. Expand Servers and make a right-click on WDS server.
  3. Open its properties and clear the Enable Variable Window Extension box on the TFTP tab.

Option 3: Navigate to below registry key and put “0” in its value field.

“HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WDSServer

\Providers\WDSTFTP\EnableVariableWindowExtension”.

Restart the WDS-Server service after disabling the Variable Window Extension.

After installing KB4499177 patch-up, certain operations like renaming of files or folders may subject to fail and hence displays the following error code.

To solve this, perform the following-

  • Execute the operation using a process which has administrator privilege.
  • Carry out this operation from a node that doesn’t contain CSV ownership.
