      For what it’s worth I’ve been testing these patches for the past 2 days with Office 2010, as offered by the traditional Windows Update UI, and I have found no problems. Notably I have not tested with attachments with weird characters or RTF documents; I just don’t get those.

      • Security Update for Microsoft Excel 2010 (KB3191907) 64-Bit Edition
      • Security Update for Microsoft Office 2010 (KB3213624) 64-Bit Edition

      The above went in coincident with the following (Group A style):

      • 2017-07 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 8.1 for x64-based Systems (KB4025336)
      • Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool for Windows 8, 8.1, 10, and Windows Server 2012 R2, 2016 x64 Edition – July 2017 (KB890830)

      I never saw KB4011042 offered when I ran the check on July 13 at 11:29 EDT.

        It was Treebeard to Merry – “Now don’t be hasty, Master Meriadoc!”


        Interestingly, “Meriadoc” almost rhymes with “Microsoft” :)!

        The best I can tell: I received reader comments to my German blog post – and some suggestions I made within German MS Answers forum, that the patches didn’t fix the issues.

      I shared KB4011042 earlier in the week in this post.

      I have not found any proof of why they pulled the updates.

      Nevertheless, I downloaded them after they were released to deploy throughout our org, and have uploaded them to FileDropper to share. I did install the “bad” update (KB3203467), and then this update (KB4011042) on several machines and have had no problems. Outlook 2010 has behaved as expected.

      They’ve given no reason why they pulled the updates, and we’ve had no issues from deploying it – quite the opposite, actually. It fixes the issues they caused with the June updates in Outlook 2010.

      Kinda irks me that they’re pulling updates with no explanation why when the updates fix their screwups.

      Issue for 4011402:

      If you have a recurring calendar item (meeting or appointment) that contains attachments in Outlook 2010, Outlook 2010 may crash when you open an occurrence of the recurring item. If you use recurring calendar items that have attachments, and you have to access individual occurrences, you should uninstall this update and use the workarounds that are listed in the Outlook known issues in the June 2017 security updates until a new fix is available. If you do not have to access individual occurrences, you can successfully open the recurring series without crashing. This is a workaround until a fix for this issue is available.

      It has been pulled for at least 5 days now: https://www.askwoody.com/forums/topic/july-2017-patch-tuesday-rolls-out-with-another-load-of-updates/#post-124457

      I never installed the Outlook 2013 June security update, KB3191938 because of the known issues with this patch. Now that MS has pulled KB3191849 which addressed some of the issues, does anyone have any advice about what to do about the uninstalled June Outlook security update.
      I am considering holding off installing until I can figure out if the bugs have been addressed. Any info or opinions would be appreciated.

        I would say install the existing June 2017 official patch as the negative side-effects are over-rated like most of what you read on the internet.
        If you are not comfortable with that approach, then hold off is the next best.
