    About the recent MS KB 3156417 :
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3156417

    In that KB 3156417 MS is pointing to two other KB articles:
    3155039
    3155218

    See screenshot

    KB3156417_2016-05-19_01.gif

    The links to those two KB articles are not working.
    I think that MS made an error on both those two links.

    1.
    3155039

    MS gives the link:
    https://support.microsoft.com/3155039

    Shouldn't it be:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3155039

    2.
    3155218

    MS gives the link:
    https://support.microsoft.com/3155218

    Shouldn't it be:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3155218

    Hello FanJ:

    Good catch! Yes - the "en-us" is somewhat optional, but the missing "kb" is an unfortunate game stopping omission.

    It makes one wonder if quality control is an optional luxury step when trying to meet some artificial deadline/quota.

    Thank you FanJ

    The issue is not yet fixed. I tried to get in contact with Microsoft. (I do realize however it was the weekend). Waiting for a revision of it, although I do not know whether it will come...
