i downloaded the file linked by mmpc option and executed that on the windows 2016 server. no changes. i can't even see if anything was updated or installed. do you, by any chance, know of way to log actions when running updateplatform.exe or even updateplatform_4ca3e501a402a6d913024fdb532c0750152ffb12.exe i have tried / and -h without success.
also experiencing this across all my hyper-v server 2019 boxes. so it looks like all the required files are present at 'c:programdatamicrosoftwindows defenderplatform4.18.2205.7-0' but the registry is still pointing to 'c:programdatamicrosoftwindows defenderplatform4.2203.5-0'
since several weeks some windows 10 users have been experiencing a strange effect when scanning their systems using windows defender. although the scan is successful, at the end of the process the virus scanner reports skipped items during the scan. the following message is then displayed.
the bug fixed with this update was reported by scores of windows 10 users starting with themarch patch tuesdayafter they started receiving items skipped during scan alerts saying that the windows defender antivirus scan skipped an item due to an exclusion or network scanning settings.
users got the same alert on their windows 10 systems and that's when they went to the windows update settings and set the windows defender for windows 10 to manual update which is done through windows update.
as of this writing, microsoft defender has not been updated for windows 10. for the record, the new windows security update kb4052623 for windows 10 mentions only a total of 44 updates. windows 7 and windows 8.1 get 105 updates. in my case, the last update i see is the windows 10: cumulative security update for january 2018. the files in the kb4052623 download are either small (1.4 mb) or medium (1.5 mb). i downloaded the medium file, and it was a large file of 1.8 mb. when i run the installer, it says that it is “unknown platform”. i tried to run it on windows 10, and it tells me that it cannot find the file in the download. i tried to run it on a windows 7 and windows 8.1 test machine, and it told me that it is not a windows defender update. 3d9ccd7d82
