KB3114409 – Joy to the world

It’s that most wonderful time of the month again, when Microsoft release the monthly Outlook show stopper. In November, we had fun and games with bad updates for Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013.

Microsoft appear to have outdone themselves again, by releasing KB3114409. This December 2015 update causes havoc for Outlook 2010 users. thankfully this time round my beta testers actually told me about it. A quick Google of “Outlook 2010, reading pane, December updates”, and I was awash with unhappy punters.

In short, don’t install KB3114409. Don’t deploy KB3114409. Don’t even download it 😛

I did read that Microsoft had pulled the update, BUT, it is still available via WSUS. Perhaps it has only bene pulled from Windows Update and they forgot about their Corporate clients’ WSUS infrastructures.


On a plus, we caught it this time in beta so it won’t be quite as stressful as November.


Flame on xD
