Microsoft silently rolled out an important update for Windows 10 Anniversary Update. KB4034661 brings quite a long list of bug fixes and improvements to the table.

The most important patches include a fix to solve black screen issues, AppLocker crashes, computer account error 1789, and more.

KB4034661 patch notes

  • This package contains d3dcompiler_47.dll
  • Addressed the issue where a black screen appears when launching an application on Citrix XenApp that was deployed from Windows Server 2016.
  • Fixed the issue where the User Account Control (UAC) prompt sometimes appears hidden under other opened windows.
  • Addressed the issue in the event collector data that caused data corruption with % symbols in the user logon events (ID 4624) from other Domain Controllers (DCs).
  • Addressed issue where the PowerShell command Add-HgsAttestationTpmHost fails to find the Endorsement Key Certificate for a system even though the certificate exists.
  • Fixed the issue where, in some cases, an Encrypted Hard Drive device would not automatically unlock at system startup.
  • The AppLocker rules wizard should no longer crash when selecting accounts.
  • Addressed the issue where third-party directory structures caused Disk Cleanup to render a boot drive inaccessible.
  • Addressed the issue where unsynchronized access in NtfsQueryLinksInfo led to a system crash.
  • Fixed the issue where an extremely high number of I/O flushes might lead to an error.
  • Addressed a reliability issue that occurs when a user gives the wrong input to the smart card pin prompt.
  • Addressed issue by increasing the time out window when starting Docker for Windows to avoid 0x5b4 errors.
  • Fixed the issue with Azure Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) when an ADFX server is configured to use an HTTP Proxy.
  • Addressed issue where the calling IP address is not logged by 411 events in the Security Event log of ADFS 4.0 and Windows Server 2016 RS1 ADFS servers.
  • Computer accounts should no longer lose domain membership with the error 1789. The same problem happens internally when a user password cannot be changed with error 0xc0000206. This issue has also been fixed.
  • Addressed issue where, after a planned restart of the primary server, storage replication doesn’t automatically resume as expected.
  • Fixed the issue where using a GPO logon script to map a network drive fails if the user disconnects from the network and restarts.
  • Addressed issue where after uninstalling SMBv1, if you set the SPN validation level to 2, when you access a UNC share remotely (e.g., C$), the request will fail with STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED.
  • Microsoft fixed the issue where the Remote Desktop client cannot connect or disconnects intermittently when trying to connect using the RD Gateway.
  • Addressed issue where presenting an expired or revoked certificate to the ADFS Proxy server does not return an error to the user.
