The .NET patch failure that wasn’t

Once we began this month of patching, I totally anticipated to come back again by way of now with huge listings of programs that hated the February updates. That hasn’t been the case, despite the fact that there were some problems associated with .NET this month. 

Should you’re questioning, .NET is a framework utilized by builders to construct programs. It makes for usual coding tactics and “controlled code” and will make an app extra safe. Builders essentially use Visible studio to expand tool that all of us use on our Home windows programs.

Identified problems affecting Visible Studio maximum dramatically gave the impression in updates first presented with the cumulative .NET updates starting closing month. KB4598301 was once launched Jan. 26 as an not obligatory preview replace for .NET on Home windows 10 1909 and brought about Visible Studio to crash. Then KB4601056, launched Feb. nine, suffered from the similar factor. So Microsoft launched a preview replace per week later —  KB4601556 — that fastened the underlying factor in Win10 1909.

The Patch Tuesday unencumber of KB4601887 for Home windows 10 1809 was once later fastened by way of KB4602298, despite the fact that now not for all platforms. As an example, the unencumber of KB4601050 for Home windows 2004/20H2, KB4601054 for Win10 1803, and  KB4601051 for Win10 1607 had been now not fastened with later releases. I be expecting that for those platforms you’ll have to attend till the March updates arrive in case you are seeing utility crashes.

Differently, I’ve been shocked by way of how few studies of problems I’ve noticed after those updates had been put in. In my very own private trying out, I’ve now not noticed problems — despite the fact that there were studies of issues from different customers. One record comes to Autodesk’s Inventor 2020 and 2021, which crashes with those updates put in. However utility crashes were few and some distance between; thus, I don’t look ahead to you are going to have problems this month.

Every other record I’ve noticed comes from the VMware discussion board, the place this patch was once put in on Server 2016 deployments and blocked the power to completely join iOS units with Clever Hub 21.01. Because the VMware wisdom base notes, a number of .NET updates launched in February motive problems with Workspace ONE UEM capability together with safe channel communique.
