Windows MultiPoint Server 2011 and KB2524478

There is now a version 2 of the hotfix that was originally available under Microsoft KB 2524478 (The network location profile changes from “Domain” to “Public” in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2). If you had installed the first version of it as we did on our production WMS Servers, then you’ll want to first uninstall the original Windows6.1-KB2524478-x64 before installing the new Windows6.1-KB2524478-v2-x64 “v2” version of it.

If you are wondering why you should install it in the first place, here’s your answer. Yes. Install it. If you have any Ethernet or RDP/RDS clients using the Windows MultiPoint Server and they are experiencing momentary lapses in their connectivity, then this is why. If you have any of the following versions of Windows, look at applying it as well if you are seeing a yellow “bang” ! on your network connection icon in the system tray, or if you are running Remote Desktop Services in a non-WMS environment, but experiencing the same issues. Applies to:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
