Known issues in this update

Symptom

After installing KB4041681, package users may see an error dialog that indicates that an application exception has occurred when closing some applications. This can affect applications that use mshtml.dll to load web content. The failure only occurs when a process is already shutting down, and doesn’t affect application functionality.

Workaround

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Symptom

After installing this KB, Internet Explorer 11 users who use SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) may not be able to scroll through a drop-down menu using the scroll bar.

Workaround

Using the scroll wheel on a mouse works as expected. This issue only applies to document mode 11, so attempting to load the page with document mode 10 may work around the issue.

To change the document mode in Internet Explorer 11:

  1. Select F12.
  2. Select the Emulation tab.
  3. On the Document mode menu, select 10. The page will reload in the new document mode.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
