Application module can't receive correct process status after security update 3045999 is installed in Windows

This article describes an issue that occurs after you install April 2015 security update for Windows (3045999) in Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 R2. A hotfix is available to fix this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite.
Symptoms
Applications that call Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) APIs directly or call APIs that rely on WMI (such as the ManagementEventWatcher class) don't get the correct process status (regardless of whether the process is running or not).
Cause
This issue occurs because new process creation events aren't triggered by the WMI notification query if security update 3045999 is installed.
