- Addresses an issue that prevents users from enabling gan-nen support for the Japanese Era. For more information, see KB4469068.
Addresses an issue that may prevent users from signing in and cause account lockouts when using the App-V client to start applications. The issue occurs because Kerberos authentication fails when trying to get user information from the domain name server (DNS). Modify the following registry key:
- Setting: UseDcForGetUserInfo
- Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\AppV\Shared\
- Type: REG_DWORD
- Value: Setting the following DWORD to nonzero will enable the solution.
- Addresses an issue that prevents App-V applications from starting and generates error “0xc0000225”. Setting the following DWORD to a non-zero number will enable the solution: "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\AppV\\MAV\Configuration\MaxAttachWaitTimeInMilliseconds". The default is zero, the maximum is 10,000, and it limits the maximum wait time for a driver when the error occurs. For more information, see KB4494206.

Addresses an issue in which the graphics device interface (GDI) DeleteObject() may cause the calling process to stop working when both of the following conditions are true:
- The calling process is a WOW64 process that handles memory addresses larger than 2 GB.
- The DeleteObject() is called with a device context that is compatible with a printer device context.
- Addresses an issue to meet GB18030 certificate requirements.
