Windows 10 Update causes error installing third-party drivers

“This issue occurs when an improperly formatted catalog file is identified during validation by Windows. Starting with this release, Windows will require the validity of DER encoded PKCS#7 content in catalog files. Catalogs files must be signed per section 11.6 of describing DER-encoding for SET OF members in X.690,” Microsoft said.

---

This update also addresses a Group Policy service issue, when a policy has been configured to delete cached profiles.

This issue might recursively delete critical files from %systemroot%\system32 and cause stop error “0x5A (CRITICAL_SERVICE_FAILED)” boot failures.

If a moderator can fix/adjust in my original post please...

Hmmm, makes me wonder what the definition of "cumulative" is for Microsoft. To me, it means it is a collection, an "accumulation" of previously released updates. So if these updates were released previously, why didn't this driver problem surface then? It suggests additional new changes were introduced into this package, beyond what was previously introduced.

I mean, Microsoft has a such a long tradition of conforming to conventional norms, right?  ;)  ;)  ;D

I have a different take on "cumulative"... that this an update offering new features, as well as including the essential contents of previously released updates.   So for example, a person may install the October update, gaining all the protection of everything released up to and including October, without having to go through the drudgery of having to sequentially install first the January, then the February, then the March & etc. and through September, as prerequisites to installing the October.

Of course, anytime something is changed or added, there is potential to introduce new problems :-(

I understand and totally accept that. That description defines what "cumulative" is.

But "offering new features" does not. "New features", IMO, should be released in a new and separate WU. And then those new features can be included in the next "cumulative" update.

Right. And IMO, it would be a whole lot easier to locate and fix those "new problems" if they were introduced a "new features" update.
