  • Adds top-level domain support to HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) Preload for Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

Known issues in this update


Symptom Workaround

 

 

After installing this update, virtual machines (VM) may fail to restore successfully if the VM has been saved and restored once before. The error message is, “Failed to restore the virtual machine state: Cannot restore this virtual machine because the saved state data cannot be read. Delete the saved state data and then try to start the virtual machine. (0xC0370027).”

This affects AMD Bulldozer Family 15h, AMD Jaguar Family 16h, and AMD Puma Family 16h (second generation) microarchitectures.

After installing this update, shut down the virtual machines before restarting the host.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available by mid-February 2019.

After installing this update, Internet Explorer may fail to load images with a backslash (\) in their relative source path.

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.
Applications that use a Microsoft Jet database with the Microsoft Access 95 file format may randomly stop working.

Option 1: Convert the database to a newer .mdb file format. This doesn’t require a change to the Connection string.

  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.

 

Option 2: 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.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available late February.
