    Microsoft security updates crash Outlook 2016


      For the past couple of months, Microsoft's security updates, in particular the update included for outlook 2016, will crash outlook on my users computers who have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016.

      The most recent problem patch is MS16-107- Security Update for Microsoft Office (3185852)


      Has anyone else had this issue? If so, any recommendations?


      As of now we uninstall the patch which resolves the crashing issues. It's a strange problem, because it only affects a small group of users in my organization.

          Not run into this one myself, but it's hardly news that Microsoft's rollup patches in the last year have been causing issues / breaking stuff (including Windows Update itself - yay).


          Still trying to come up with something that is "sensible" with Microsoft's new approach of "test to live" (which I'm still calling out as irresponsible) approach ... haven't come up with anything graceful yet. .
