Microsoft’s KB 4458166, launched on Tuesday, explains that the push to Win10 model 1803 has been halted for machines operating .Net programs that use the TLS 1.2 safety protocol. Presumably, efficient Tuesday, if in case you have a Win10 1709 or 1703 device that’s operating a type of systems (together with, significantly, QuickBooks Desktop), Microsoft received’t attempt to push 1803 on it.
It isn’t transparent if the computer virus arose from the contemporary .Net updates to Win10 1803 or if it’s been there all alongside and Microsoft’s testers took 4 months to determine that upgrading to 1803 hoses QuickBooks.
Late ultimate evening, with out fanfare, Microsoft put two “Critical Updates” in the Windows Update Catalog that most likely solve the problem.
I say “appears” as a result of, rather then the identify of the ones (difficult to understand!) Microsoft Catalog entries, I don’t see any indication what they’re intended to do. The KB article, particularly, has no longer been changed to indicate to the new patches. It nonetheless says:
Microsoft is operating on a answer, and can supply an replace in an upcoming unlock. We have briefly suspended providing the Windows 10, model 1803 replace to buyer methods that run programs for which that is recognized to be an energetic problem.
Do you continue to assume Win10 1803 is in a position for companies?
