    KB2640148 Breaks Folder Redirection

    Just realised that KB2640148 is breaking our folder redirection group policys. Uninstalling the KB doesnt fix the issue but installing the KB does break folder redirection.

    A google search has brought up a twitter post confirming the same issue as I'm having but otherwise there is very little info.

    This is happening accross site affecting up to 1000 computers.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Cheers

    Did you not test the update?

    Try this in a reg file and see if it fixes it

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{2112AB0A-C86A-4ffe-A368-0DE96E47012E}]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{2112AB0A-C86A-4ffe-A368-0DE96E47012E}\PropertyBag]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{491E922F-5643-4af4-A7EB-4E7A138D8174}]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{491E922F-5643-4af4-A7EB-4E7A138D8174}\PropertyBag]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{7b0db17d-9cd2-4a93-9733-46cc89022e7c}]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderDescriptions\{7b0db17d-9cd2-4a93-9733-46cc89022e7c}\PropertyBag]

    Just declined it in WSUS... thanks for the heads up. Can't say we've had any issues with what it appears to fix anyway.

    It wasn't me that rolled out the update, it was just left upto me to sort it :-(

    Thanks for the reg edits, luckily about 5 minutes after posting this post I tried that reg edit anyway, it was the same reg edit that fixed a previous update that also broke the same thing.

    Weird

    I can't find it in WSUS to Decline :-S, is it jus an optional update?

    I notice the text at the top of the Knowlegebase page and I quote 'Install this update to resolve issues in Windows' urm ????

    What are the symptoms of the failure, folder redirection gone screwy here but not at work at moment so cant say if we have that update installed.

    @TechSupp: This update was released to WSUS on 14/02/2012. If Folder Redirection is only breaking now, you are either pretty late installing updates, or it's not that causing your problem. I know it hasn't caused any issues for us.

    I have jus started using WSUS as have only now got to the stage of actually being able to test the updates on small groups of computers before rolling out site wide.

    Is it possible the update has being withdrawn since?

    It's not impossible, but if it was withdrawn, that would normally filter through to existing WSUS installations and the update would be expired or superseded. It's still showing as a valid update on mine. Are you syncing the Updates category as well as Security Updates? It is listed under the former.

    Not syncing the Updates Classification, that'll probably be it then.

    We have had an issue for a while, as usual no one reported it for ages and just grumbled quietly, once I knew about it I have investigated but not found a solution. As moving to W7 in summer its gone on the back burner as they can still access file by the mapped drive.
