KB4501835 patch update- Known Issues

Issue#1

After updating your PC with this patch up, you may encounter issues while using the Preboot Execution Environment i.e. PXE. It occurs primarily when you start a device from a Windows Deployment Services (WDS) server configured to use Variable Window Extension.  If that’s the case, it might terminate the connection when you download any image on the WDS server. However, the devices which are not running Variable Windows Extension remain unaffected.

Sol- Microsoft brings the following three ways to solve this bug. They, in general, help you in disabling the WDS server.

Method 1: Start Command Prompt on your system as an administrator and type the following command line-

Wdsutil /Set-TransportServer /EnableTftpVariableWindowExtension:No

Press Enter to execute the above command thereafter see whether it mitigates the trouble or not. If not, follow the next workaround.

Method 2: Make some necessary changes to the Windows Deployment Services UI. They are-

  1. At first, start Windows Deployment Services using Windows Administrative Tools.
  2. Here, expand Servers then make a right-click on the WDS server.
  3. Hit properties and uncheck the box Enable Variable Window Extension available on the TFTP tab.

Method 3: You can fix this bug using registry tweaks as well. All you need to do is to put “0” in the value field of following registry entry-

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\WDSServer\Providers\WDSTFT\EnableVariableWindowExtension

Once you disable the Variable Window Extension using the above tweak, restart the WDS server services again. It may start functioning properly.

Issue#2

Custom URI schemes are custom-designed for Application Protocol handlers. Such schemes may fail to start any application for local intranet or open trusted websites on Internet Explorer.

Sol- To mitigate this issue, follow these two options-

Option-1: Make a right-click on the respective URL link and open the same on a new window or tab.

Option-2: Enable the protected mode in Internet Explorer for both i.e. local intranet and trusted sites. Here are the steps to follow-

  1. At first navigate to Tools > Internet options > Security.
  2. Here, select Local intranet under Select a zone to view or change security settings, thereafter Enable Protected Mode.
  3. Subsequently, select Trusted sites next Enable Protected Mode option.
  4. At last tap OK to save the changes and restart your Browser.

Issue#3

After installing this update, if you perform certain operations such as rename of files/ folders; it may fail to display error “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs only on those files that either don’t have administrative privileges or have a Custom Shared Volume ownership.

Sol- You can fix the above bug by performing-

  1. Start an operation using a process only when it has administrator privilege.
  2. Don’t perform an operation using a node that has CSV ownership.

Issue#4

Microsoft and ArcaBit have identified an issue on devices with ArcaBit antivirus software installed that may cause the system to become unresponsive upon restart after installing this update.

Sol- The Company has temporarily blocked all such devices which have ArcaBit antivirus program running on them. ArcaBit has recently brought an update to address this bug.
