Known issues in this update

  • Issue 1

    Symptoms

    Assume that you are running Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) on a computer on which update 3175024 is installed. When you try to start an application, the application freezes very early in the process and does not completely start.

    Cause

    This issue occurs because the Export Address table Filtering (EAF) mitigation is active on the application.

    Workaround

    To work around this issue, use one of the following methods to disable the EAF mitigation on all applications.

    Method 1

    Select a running process in EMET, press and hold (or right-click) Configure Process, and then clear the EAF check box on each running application. The following screen shots show these steps.
