Data Connectivity - When will Issue Excel Connectivity with Jet OLE DB Provider Due to update kb4041678 Patch kb4041681 Be Available RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have information on when a security update will be available for the issue?

    On 10/18/17 MS Article Stated: "Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release of the security patch. This is expected to be available in another 2-3 weeks or earlier."

    For Issue:

    JET provider is no longer able to connect after the October update. This update (released October 10<sup>th</sup>, 2017) includes a security update release that inadvertently affects the JET provider. The update was kb4041678 and included in the patch kb4041681.  These patches affected the Operating System, which adversely has an issue with the following technologies: Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server. It is important to note that the changes were not to these technologies themselves.

  • Hi MRapko,

    As I known, the fix of Jet Database issue in Windows 10&2016 has been released:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4052231/windows-10-update-kb4052231

    And what we should do is to wait for the released fix for Windows7&8 version, please make sure that your machine is up to date to get the update in time.

    Thanks again for your time and patience.

    Best regards,

    Vivian
