Microsoft’s latest Cumulative Update KB4512941 is having a tough time. We have earlier reported that KB4512941 has a high CPU usage bug, which Microsoft acknowledged after users reported the issue on Microsoft forum and Feedback hub.

Aside from that, users also reported that KB4512941 update broke the Windows search, as a result of which, it returned a blank page instead of the desired search results. The issue was reported only by a few users and that led to people thinking that the KB4512941 update might not be the culprit.

Turns out, the latest cumulative update caused the issue as Microsoft has finally marked the Windows Search bug as “a known issue.” In a support document, Microsoft also clarified that users who disabled the web integration in Windows Desktop Search are going to get affected by the Search bug.

Now that the bug has gained the status of “a known issue,” a fix will be issued and as per Microsoft, the fix will be rolled out in mid-September. “We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be available in mid-September,” Microsoft stated.
