    KB2995388 (and 2 others)

    I posted this a while ago in the Patch Watch forum area but got no replies. Maybe someone here can answer.

    On my Win 8.1 system three updates showed up that weren't addressed in Patch Watch:
    2995388 - October Rollup 8.1
    2998174 - Active Camera
    3006178 - MDM Client Update

    The second one I'm not worried about. The third - I really don't know understand enough to know if I need it.
    But the first - the October roll-up - that sounds important enough to where I really need to know if it is as important as it sounds, and whether it is safe to install.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    I've also installed all three. Note: you must have Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 update: April 2014 installed.

    Ms. Bradley recommends installation of non-security patches at the end of the month as long as there have not been reports of problems.

    KB2995388, Windows 8.1 rollup, was covered in Patch Watch on October 30 (the one that mysteriously never made it to a newsletter! ):

    Update causes problems with VMware workstations
    KB 2995388 is a nonsecurity Windows 8.1 rollup update that includes various fixes and “improvements” (see the update’s support page for the list). However, it also causes problems with VMware Workstation 10. For now, the workaround is to reinstall VMware 10 after installing KB 2995388 — or, as a VMware blog post recommends, uninstalling the update.

    - What to do: Test your VMware application after installing KB 2995388. If you run into problems, I recommend leaving the update installed and reinstalling VMware.


    KB2998174, Active camera bugfix, also got a brief mention there as safe to install.
