General Fixes and Improvements on KB4516077 

Here, we discuss the key changes and improvements that came along with KB4516077 cumulative update-

  • Works upon an issue that restricts the discovery of remote systems associated with a user from working properly.

  • Fixes an issue that prohibits Microsoft Edge from printing PDF documents comprising both portrait-oriented & landscape-oriented pages.
  • Earlier, when you resume your PC either after Sleep or Hibernation results in some issues. This, in turn, causes dim brightness and you can’t even change that. Most probably, certain graphics drivers are the sole culprit. The Company has resolved this bug on the 24th Sept cumulative Update.
  • The team resolves the MSCTF.dll issue as well that results in several apps not working trouble.
  • Addresses a bug that simply prohibits some minimized windows from interacting. Moreover, you cannot restore, close, or maximize them when a system is running with a custom shell. 
  • Resolves an anomaly that fails to provide a cursor when you select a text input element using touch. 
  • Works upon an issue that causes icons in message box dialogs to appear too large when you choose to scale options in Display settings. To know more, see Using Dialog Boxes and Display Scaling in Windows 10.
  • Windows 10 users may now use the Save as well as Save As options on Office 2010 even when high contrast mode is On.

  • Windows 10 users won’t receive unnecessary requests to restart PC from the server-side after installing KB4516077.
  • There appear some issues with diagnostic data on PC while processing the Windows Out of Box Experience (OOBE) sequence. They have addressed this issue as well.
  • The following patch manages Windows 10 Enterprise for virtual desktops editions (EVD) in the Azure Active Directory. You must require an EVD license to connect to EVD editions.
  • Addresses an anomaly that stops App-V apps from either opening or displaying Network failure error messages. This bug arises primarily when the system’s battery is low or your PC encounters a sudden power failure. 
  • Earlier, an issue pops in between and restricts the secure connection between a web-browser and Windows Server. When you use a client authentication certificate like – SHA512, however, the browser doesn’t support a matching signature algorithm; this error is bound to occur. 
  • KB4516077 resolves a bug that may let the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) stop working with an “0xc0000005” error. 
  • Build 17763.774 solves a bug that prevents the BitLocker recovery key from being successfully backed up to Azure Active Directory. 
  • Fixes an anomaly that brings excessive memory utilization under Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP). 

Some Other Issues

  • Resolves a possible compatibility issue when Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) accesses case-sensitive Server Message Block (SMB) shares. 
  • Addresses a rare issue that occurs when the mssecflt.sys driver takes too much space on the kernel stack. This results in the error, “STOP 0x7F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP”, and Parameter 1 is set to “EXCEPTION_DOUBLE_FAULT.” 
  • Improves the detection accuracy of Microsoft Defender ATP Threat & Vulnerability Management. 
  • Addresses an issue that gives a Windows Hello for Business user two certificates for authentication during certificate renewal instead of one certificate. 
  • The team rectifies an issue that causes the lsass.exe service to stop working, which causes the system to shut down. This occurs when migrating Data Protection API (DPAPI) credentials using dpapimig.exe with the –domain option. 
  • Addresses an issue that may cause Direct Access servers to use a large amount of non-paged pool memory (pooltag: NDnd). 
  • Resolves an issue that causes vertical fonts to be larger when printing to a PostScript printer. 
  • Addresses an issue that prevents Windows from sending a shutdown notification to a Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) drive when the driver unloads using Disable Device in Device Manager. 
  • Addresses an issue that prevents you from running the Active Directory Diagnostics Data Collector Set from the Performance Monitor for Domain Controllers. This causes the Data Collector Set name to appear empty. Running the Active Directory Diagnostics Data Collector Set returns the error, “The system cannot find the file specified.” Event ID 1023 is logged with the source as Perflib and the following messages:
    • “Windows cannot load the extensible counter DLL “C:\Windows\system32\ntdsperf.dll.”
    • “The specified module could not be found.” 
  • Microsoft improves an issue in GetFinalPathNameByHandleW() that prevents Favorites from opening in Internet Explorer 11. This occurs when Favorites are redirected and offline in a client-side caching scenario with enhanced protected mode compatibility (EPM) enabled.
  • Addresses an issue in which the product description of Windows Server 2019 was incorrect when queried using slmgr /dlv.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause authentication to fail for certificate-based authentication when the certificate authentication includes a cname as part of the pre-authentication request.
  • They resolve a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) runtime issue for Domain Controller Locator-style LDAP requests. The error is, “Error retrieving RootDSE attributes, data 8, v4563.”
  • Addresses an issue that causes LDAP queries that contain LDAP_MATCHING_RULE_IN_CHAIN (memberof:1.2.840.113556.1.4.1941) to intermittently fail on Windows Server 2019 domain controllers. However, these queries do not fail on domain controllers running previous versions of Windows Server.
  • Addresses an issue that causes group membership changes in Active Directory groups to fail. This occurs if the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) client uses the Security Identifier (SID) Distinguished Name (DN) syntax after installing previous versions of NTDSAI.DLL. In this scenario, an issue with the LdapPermissiveModify (LDAP_SERVER_PERMISSIVE_MODIFY_OID) control causes Active Directory to incorrectly return a “SUCCESS” status even though the group membership change did not occur.
  • Fixes an issue in which the Set-AdfsSslCertificate script is successful. However, it throws an exception during resource cleanup because the target server-side endpoint is no longer there.
  • Addresses an issue that causes File Explorer to show a regular file icon for files marked with FILE_ATTRIBUTE_OFFLINE instead of the expected placeholder icon.
  • Addresses an issue that may cause the Calculator app to close unexpectedly if you select any available Converter option.
  • Resolves an issue that causes excessive central processing unit (CPU) usage when users switch applications or hover over the Taskbar.
  • KB4516077 fixes an issue with apps and scripts that call the NetQueryDisplayInformation API or the WinNT provider equivalent. They may fail to return results after the first page of data, often 50 or 100 entries. When requesting additional pages, you may receive the error, “1359: an internal error occurred.” This solution also resolves this issue for all the updates on or before June 18, 2019.
  • Addresses an anomaly with the Origin request header behavior in Internet Explorer when you make cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) requests that use redirected resources in internal subnets.
  • Addresses a bug that causes the display’s maximum brightness to appear as 50% or less after completing the out-of-box experience (OOBE) and then waking from Sleep.
  • Allows auditing of security events for clients managed by mobile device management (MDM) for security monitoring and incident response activities.
  • Works upon an issue that restricts Microsoft App-V from picking up a parameter of the CreateProcess API properly, This prevents the virtual process from even starting.
  • Addresses an issue that causes a device to stop working when opening files from a network drive that has client-side caching enabled. This issue may occur when the device has certain third-party antivirus products installed and the drive is backed by a server that is not a Microsoft Server Message Block (SMB) server. The error code is, “0x27 RDR_FILE_SYSTEM.”
