Microsoft Confirms 3 New Issues in Recent Windows 10 Cumulative Updates

On February 12, 2019, Microsoft released a set of cumulative updates for all supported versions of Windows 10. Unfortunately, three new issues were found and confirmed in the released updates.

One of the bugs affects Internet Explorer. After installing this update, Internet Explorer may fail to load images with a backslash (\) in their relative source path. A workaround suggested by the company looks as follows.

Change the backslash (\) to a forward slash (/) in the relative path of the image element.

Or

Change the relative path to the full URI path.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

This issue could be a significant one for users who still rely on Internet Explorer.

Another issue is related to the Microsoft Jet Database Engine feature. Applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 95 file format may randomly stop working.

The provided workaround suggests converting the existing .mdb file to a newer format.

  1. Use Microsoft Access to open a database that has an older file format.
  2. You will be asked if you would like to convert. Click Yes and save the database with the .accdb file extension.
  3. Open the .accdb.
  4. From the File menu, click Save as and select Access 2002-2003 Database.

Another solution is to convert the database to the .accdb file format. To use the .accdb file format, you must change the Connection string after conversion.

The easiest way to convert is to use Microsoft Access 2010 or earlier.

  1. Use Microsoft Access to open a database that has an older file format.
  2. You will be asked if you would like to convert. Click Yes and save the database with the .accdb extension.

Finally, after installing the update, the first character of the Japanese era name is not recognized as an abbreviation and may cause date parsing issues. Affected users should apply a Registry tweak mentioned on the official support page, HERE.

    Microsoft should just put Beta in the Windows 10 name and be done with it.

    Ironic that the “Pro” version is the one with the built in ability to delay updates.

    (Until the “Home”, AKA Beta, users find all the bugs)
