Application Compatibility Update with Dell Software's ChangeBASE
With this December Microsoft Patch Tuesday update, there are 11 updates; 5 of which are marked as “Critical” and 6 rated as “Important”.
The Patch Tuesday Security Update analysis was performed by the Dell ChangeBASE Patch Impact team and identified a small percentage of applications from the thousands of applications included in testing for this release which showed amber issues.
Of the eleven patches, 4 "require a restart to load correctly", and 5 "may require a restart", and 2 indicate they "do not need a re-start" so until we see all patches in the "do not require a restart" our advice is that it is probably best to assume all require a restart to be installed correctly.
Here are two sample results showing amber warnings generated as a result of patches MS-096 & MS-099.
