Microsoft Patch and Quickbooks Conflict

A Microsoft Patch KB 4073701 for Windows 7 SP1, Server 2008R2 SP1 and 2008 R2 SP2 has been causing errors and “AppCrash” with several applications – primarily Quickbooks. Removing the update and running the application again should prevent the crashes continuing.

Microsoft has released an article stating that installing Microsoft Patch KB 4019990 may resolve the issue if it is installed before the patch that is causing the crashes. More information can be found at this Microsoft Article

Palmer Technology Solutions has blocked this patch from being pushed by Proactive Monitoring and Maintenance automatic patching until Microsoft releases a fix for this.
