If you’ve often experienced error 0x000000D1 after installing the latest Windows 10 April Update patches, then download and install KB4345421 to fix this problem for good. Microsoft rolled out this hotfix just one week after it released the problematic updates that triggered the issue mentioned above.
This is not the only bug fix that this update brings. Here is the complete list of KB4345421 improvements and fixes:
- The update fixed the issue with the DHCP Failover server that may cause enterprise clients to receive an invalid configuration when requesting a new IP address. This results in a loss of connectivity.
- The issue that may cause the restart of the SQL Server service to fail occasionally with the error, “Tcp port is already in use” has also been fixed.
- The bug where the W3SVC remains in a “stopping” state, but cannot fully stop or it cannot be restarted has been fixed as well.
While Microsoft said it was not aware of any issues affecting the update, some Windows 10 users reported their computers often froze when they tried to create a new Windows 10 image. Here’s how one user describes this issue:
I tried to create a new windows 10 image from the scratch with windows media CD, then I updated it, and when it reaches a different update (KB4284848) it freezed and I can’t do anything except force restart, so I took a new dell PC right from the box never been used and I ran windows updates and it reached (kb4345421) and it also freezed. I updated All drivers, BIOS, chipset…etc.
