During April’s Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a handful of updates for each supported version of Windows, including Windows 7. This operating system received numerous security and non-security patches, that should improve the overall stability and security of users.
One of these updates is the cumulative update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008, KB4015549. This update serves as a monthly rollup for both systems, and as a cumulative update, contains all the previously-released patches from previous updates.
The update is mainly focused on security improvements, and brings vulnerability fixes for the scripting engine,¬†Hyper-V, libjpeg image-processing library,¬†Adobe Type Manager Font Driver, Win32K,¬†Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Graphics Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol.
Microsoft also warns that the update comes with one known issue. Namely, users that have¬†an AMD Carrizo DDR4 processor in their PCs won’t be able to install future updates upon installing this one. At the moment, there’s confirmed solution, as Microsoft promised a fix soon:
“If the PC uses an AMD Carrizo DDR4 processor, installing this update will block downloading and installing future Windows updates. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in¬†an upcoming release.”
Other than this problem, there are no other reported issues so far. However, if you encountered any additional problems upon installing cumulative update¬†KB4015549, feel free to let us know in the comments below.
