MS Security Patch Issues

Customers please do not apply the updates listed below to your BHCS system. We have encountered a problem with these Windows updates that cause the Barr HOST Communication Servers (BHCS) Spool core not to function properly.

If you have already applied the updates and found an issue:
1) Uninstall the update
2) Stop all of the BHCS services
3) Run the Setup.exe from \Program Files\Barr Systems\BHCS\Setup.exe
4) Choose the “Repair” option
5) Check “Repair Registry”


Barr Systems is working as quickly as possible to make our software compatible with this security patch, but for now do not install it. As soon as Barr has a workaround or a patch we will send out a notification to everyone on what to do.


The service patches that we are currently aware of:

KB4056897 Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server R2
KB4056892 Windows 10
KB4056898 Windows 8.1 and Server 2012R2
KB4056890 Server 2016
