Known issues with this security update
  • Known issue 1
    After you install this security update, fonts that are installed in a location other than the default fonts directory (%windir%\fonts\) cannot be changed when they are loaded into any active session. Attempts to change, replace, or delete these fonts are blocked, and a "File in use" message is displayed.

    For more information, go to the following Microsoft webpages:
    Font Installation and Deletion

  • Known issue 2
    After you install this update, the z-order of the windows is changed. (The z-order calls the SetWindowPos function together with the HWND_TOP parameter.) Therefore, the windows of certain applications may become invisible or may be incorrectly displayed behind other windows.

    We are currently working on a resolution for this issue.

    This issue also occurs after you install the following updates:
