Microsoft updates Patch Tuesday notes with three known issues

Microsoft pushed out Patch Tuesday updates for the month of February last week. The updates rolled out to all the supported versions of Windows and were available to all the users. The updates did fix a bunch of issues while breaking a couple of things. Microsoft did list out all the stuff that was broken under the known issues column. Today Microsoft updated the list of known issues and added three more issues which are now confirmed as the known issues with the new patch.

Following issues were detected in Windows 7, 8.1 and Windows 10:

SymptomWorkaround
After installing this update, Internet Explorer may fail to load images with a backslash (\) in their relative source path.Change the backslash (\) to a forward slash (/) in the relative path of the image element.

Or

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 95 file format may randomly stop working.Option 1: Convert the database to a newer .mdb file format. This doesn’t require a change to the Connection string.

  1. Use Microsoft Access to open a database that has an older file format.
  2. You will be asked if you would like to convert. Click Yes and save the database with the .accdb file extension.
  3. Open the .accdb.
  4. From the File menu, click Save as and select Access 2002-2003 Database.

Option 2: Convert the database to the .accdb file format. To use the .accdb file format, you must change the Connection string after conversion.

The easiest way to convert is to use Microsoft Access 2010 or earlier.

  1. Use Microsoft Access to open a database that has an older file format.
  2. You will be asked if you would like to convert. Click Yes and save the database with the .accdb extension.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available late February.

Microsoft also detected an issue that affects Windows 7 and all supported versions of Windows 10 except version 1507:

SymptomWorkaround
After installing this update, the first character of the Japanese era name is not recognized as an abbreviation and may cause date parsing issues.Modify the registry with the two-character abbreviation for Japanese eras as follows:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\Calendars\Japanese\Eras]

“1868 01 01″=”??_?_Meiji_M”

“1912 07 30″=”??_?_Taisho_T”

“1926 12 25″=”??_?_Showa_S”

“1989 01 08″=”??_?_Heisei_H”

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Microsoft hasn’t released the timeline as to when these issues will be fixed but we certainly can expect another round of patches later this month to fix the issues.
