Windows 7 8.1 Preview Rollup Updates (July 18, 2018)

Microsoft released a series of updates for Windows 10 on July 16, 2018, which are supposed to fix Bluescreens among other things (see my blog post Windows 10: Update revisions July 16, 2018). Also included was Update KB4345418 for Windows 10 V1607 (LTSB) and Windows Server 2016, which should fix the following bugs:

Windows 7 8.1 Preview Rollup Updates (July 18, 2018)

Interestingly, the changes included in these patchs for Windows 7 and 8.1 are nearly identical with one of Windows 10 July 2018 cumulative updates published earlier this week. These cumulative updates for both operating systems resolve the same issues, which are listed below.

Glad to report around here that the 2008 R2 and 2016 Server updates seem to all be working as expected, all updated within a local WSUS environment. One 2008 R2 server housed in a remote data center never was offered the KB4345459 update via Windows Update, however when provided the windows6.1-kb4345459-x64 msu file manually, updated just fine. Now, in all cases, these servers can start/stop/restart IIS and other network services without the service hang.

So KB4338815 is actually a "monthly rollup" update that includes both security fixesand other non-security improvements and fixes. This includes the security-only updates inKB4338824, which currently lists the same known issues as KB4338815, but only the KB4338824 article has been updated to referenceKB4345424 as a workaround for those.
