This occurs when two or more people use the same user account for multiple, concurrent login sessions on the same Windows Server machine, including Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Terminal Server logons. Symptoms reported by customers include, but may not be limited to:

  • Cache size and location show zero or empty.
  • Keyboard shortcuts may not work properly.
  • Webpages may intermittently fail to load or render correctly.
  • Issues with credential prompts.

Create unique user accounts so that two people don’t share the same user account when logging on to a Windows Server machine. Additionally, disable multiple RDP sessions for a single user account for a specific Windows Server.

After installing this update on machines that have multiple audio devices, applications that provide advanced options for internal or external audio output devices may stop working unexpectedly. This issue occurs for users that select an audio output device different from the “Default Audio Device”. Examples of applications that may stop working include:

  • Windows Media Player
  • Realtek HD Audio Manager
  • Sound Blaster Control Panel
As a temporary solution, select the “Default Audio Device” in the options provided by the application; please refer to the application’s user manual for details.

For example, to set the Default Audio Device in Windows Media Player:

  1. Open Windows Media Player > Tools > Options > Devices.
  2. Select the device and choose Properties.
  3. On the next dialog, from the drop-down menu under Select the Audio Device, choose Default Audio Device from the list.

You can then send audio from the application to the audio device you want in the per-application audio settings found under Settings > System > Sound > App Volume and device preferences.

Microsoft is working on a resolution and estimates a solution will be available in late March 2019.
