This is the error that came up when connecting to a remote server via Parallels Client:

I’m using Windows 7 trying to connect with a Windows 10 machine. Uninstalling the particular updates is the only solution for now. By the way, can someone provide tips on how to improve the performance of the connection using Parallels? It’s unbearably slow especially when you download a file (took 2–3 min before the download box appears).

This update causes prevents you from RDP’g into another machine unless it has certain unidentified updates installed. Real showstopper that has cause the loss of hundreds of hours of work at my company.
