- Addressed the issue that fails to set the LmCompatibilityLevel value correctly. LmCompatibilityLevel specifies the authentication mode and session security.
- Fixed the issue that may prevent applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 97 file format from opening. The database fails to open with the error, “Unrecognized Database Format”.
- Adds top-level domain support to HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) Preload for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

KB4487026 also adds two additional improvements, apart from the ones listed above. The update addressed the issue that causes Microsoft Outlook search to fail with an “Outlook cannot perform the search” error on Windows Server 2016.
