KB4467107 known issues

There is just one issue known about this update but it may be a problem for some.

Symptom

After you apply this update, the network interface controller may stop working on some client software configurations. This occurs because of an issue related to a missing file, oem.inf. The exact problematic configurations are currently unknown.

There are two possible workarounds to try and fix this known issue:

Workaround

  1. To locate the network device, launch devmgmt.msc. It may appear under Other Devices.
  2. To automatically rediscover the NIC and install drivers, select Scan for Hardware Changes from the Action menu.
    Alternatively, install the drivers for the network device by right-clicking the device and choosing Update. Then choose Search automatically for updated driver software or Browse my computer for driver software.

If you would like to run this update as a stand-alone package, use the Microsoft Update Catalog. For more information, check out Microsoft’s support page.
