Reftool will be updated today after 7 PM. A couple of improvements:
- Leading and trailing whitespaces will be trimmed from user search queries.
- Proxy addresses will wrap to the next line if too long. In turn, bullet points will be prepended.
Microsoft just released patch KB3092627 to resolve issues that were caused by previous patch KB3076895.
- If security update 3076895 is installed on a Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer, install update 3092627.
- If update 3090303 is installed, customers already have the fix for the issue. Therefore, they don’t have to install update 3092627. Update 3092627 is a broader GDR release of the fix in update 3090303.
I am monitoring WSUS and will have folks follow up on any failed installs.
The following applications will be updated tonight via Ninite:
- Google Chrome: 43.0.2357.81 –> 43.0.2357.124 (details)
- Flash (IE and Firefox): 22.214.171.124 –> 126.96.36.199 (details)
- PDF Creator: 188.8.131.520 –> 184.108.40.2064 (details)
- Skype: 220.127.116.11 –> 18.104.22.168 (no release notes O.o )
There is about 1GB worth of Windows and Office updates. The WSUS synchronization log can be found here:
This series of updates does require a reboot.
- PDFCreator nuked my profile settings and is presenting me with a welcome screen to set up my profile again.
- Office has decided that new shortcuts should be placed in C:\Users\Public\Desktop. As a result, all of my desktop shortcuts for Office got duplicated.
Update: Ninite is now functional again.
Ninite Pro has expired and is no longer functional. Please use their website for now if doing manual installs. Angela is aware and has contacted them to renew our account. This has the following impact for Client Services:
- The update tonight will fail if the SCCM package isn’t updated before 10pm. I think we’ll have an updated executable before that happens.
- Current Windows builds will likely fail the Ninite process in MDT but should proceed through the rest of the build. Technicians will need to run installers post-config until we have an updated executable.
- Customer machines that haven’t been turned on in a while will likely attempt Ninite updates and fail. This shouldn’t be noticeable to the customer.
- DCAs and anyone else who uses Ninite Pro may have difficulties depending on how they use the program. I have contacted folks who are using it for SCCM.
I’ve updated Group Policy on all staff workstations to prevent installing updates immediately upon shut down. Previously when there were updates scheduled to install, the start menu Shut Down option would be replaced with “Install updates and shut down.” This update gives you back the ability to choose either option. At this point we’re just testing how this plays out for folks.
