    First leftover: MS12-074 .NET updates

    .NET patching is messy. If you have patched .NET on Windows XP in the past and have had problems, skip these updates. For Windows 7 I have not seen as many issues. That's not to say I can guarantee that you will not have issues, just that I've seen less issues with .NET updates on the Windows 7 platform.

    Windows XP Service pack 3:

    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 Service Pack 3
    (KB2698035)
    (Media Center Edition 2005 Service Pack 3 and Tablet PC Edition 2005 Service Pack 3 only) - skip and hide it

    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
    (KB2698023) - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2
    (KB2729450) - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2729449) - if you are offered it - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2737019) - if you are offered it - skip

    Windows XP SP2 64Bit

    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
    (KB2698023) - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2
    (KB2729450) - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2729449) - skip

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2737019) - if you are offered it - skip

    Vista Service Pack 2

    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
    (KB2698023) - Install

    Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2
    (KB2729453) - install

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2729449) - if offered install

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
    (KB2729460) - install only if offered on Windows or Microsoft update. .NET 4.5 is optional on Vista

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2737019) - install only if offered

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
    (KB2737083) - install only if offered on Windows or Microsoft update. .NET 4.5 is optional on Vista

    Windows 7 with Service pack 1: (not I am not giving the KB article info for Windows 7 without SP1 as you should be on SP1)


    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1
    (KB2729452) - install

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2729449) - install only if offered, .NET 4.0 is optional on Windows 7.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
    (KB2729460)- install only if offered on Windows or Microsoft update. .NET 4.5 is optional on Windows 7

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4[1]
    (KB2737019) install only if offered, .NET 4.0 is optional on Windows 7.

    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
    (KB2737083) install only if offered on Windows or Microsoft update. .NET 4.5 is optional on Windows 7

    If you have any failures in installing the update, Aaron Stebner's .NET tool can be used to remove .NET so that it can be reinstalled.

    Leftover #2 - IPv6 patch KB 2750841

    KB 2750841 had issues with OpenDNS. OpenDNS ended up fixing the issue on their end, therefore I'm giving the all clear on this one. Normally I skip non security updates, but on this one we're starting to use more and more IPv6 protocols as we're running out of IPv4 addresses so I'll recommend installing this one. This has some needed fixes for IPv6 so I'm giving this one a green light.

    KB 2750841 - recommendation: install

    Leftover #3 - KB 2685811 (kernel-mode) and KB 2685813 (user-mode)

    KB 2685811 (kernel-mode) and KB 2685813 (user-mode). I'm still scratching my head over these two. I honestly don't know what they do and what they are impacting. They are not security updates. I'm going to give these two a skip. While I saw no issues installing them, I see no compelling reason to install them. Until Microsoft gives us one, skip.

    KB 2685811 (kernel-mode) and KB 2685813 (user-mode) - skip both

    Leftover #4 - Calibri font for Windows 7

    If you've installed Office 2013/PowerPoint 2013 install http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2761217 otherwise skip this update.

    KB2761217 only install if you've installed PowerPoint/Office 2013. Otherwise skip it.

    (Turkey is almost ready, I'll post up the rest of the Patch leftovers later on this evening)

    Leftover #5 - KB 2763523

    KB 2763523 - No network connectivity on Windows 7-based or Windows Server 2008 R2-based client computers when a DHCPv6 message is sent that has a duplicated DUID

    The fact pattern on this update requires that you have not one but two cable modems in your network. Given that many of you are like me and probably only have one cable modem, I'm giving a skip on this non security update.

    KB2763523 - skip

    Leftover # 6 - KB 2687277 for OneNote 2010

    KB 2687277 for OneNote 2010
    If you are running Windows 8 or have installed Office 2013 in addition to Office 2010, install
    KB 2687277 for OneNote 2010. If you are still using Windows 7 and then only have installed Office 2010 there's no need to install this update and you can skip it.

    KB 2687277 for OneNote 2010 - Skip

    KB 2687623 for Outlook 2010 - skip

    What about Servers?

    Hi Susan,

    I am new to your Patch Watch articles. Maybe you have already covered this question before but let me ask again.

    I have notice you don't discuss updates with reference to Servers? is there any separate discussion in this regard?

    I tend to focus on workstations and only call out servers if there's something that really has a problem. Do you have a question regarding a specific update?

    Hi Susan,

    Thanks for your reply. In fact, I was thinking of .Net updates. Can I install them on Windows Server 2003 and 2008 R2 Enterprises machines.

    Same rules of engagement apply as do my recommendation for XP and Windows 7. On 2003 which is like XP I've seen more issues. Whereby you have to rip out .net 1.1, 2 and reinstall. Knock on wood I've seen no issues on Server 2008 r2 with .NET 2, 3 and 4.

    .NET on 2003 can be troublesome.

    I apologize for being wishywashy, but those older .NETs are not good patchers.

    Problem with KB 2750841

    KB 2750841 - recommendation: install
    WARNING: I installed this update and rebooted as requested. All was fine until my next reboot. That one got stuck on the "Welcome" screen shown before the desktop display. The screen then went black except for the mouse cursor. After several Ctrl-Alt-Del presses I could hear the startup sound and got a menu allowing me to open task manager (as well as logout, shutdown, etc). This got me back to the desktop.

    This was very repeatable even after disabling all startup programs. Safe mode ran just fine.

    Finally, I ran the System Restore function and rolled back to just before installing KB2750841. That brought my computer system back to normal.

    I am running Win 7 Pro x64 with all patches recommended by Susan Bradley (except this one).

    My Comcast Modem does NOT support IPv6, but that should not matter.
