What’s new in the KB5026436 update?
As with regular cumulative updates, KB5026436 brings several quality improvements and addresses various issues that users have been encountering for the past few builds.
Among the key issues resolved in KB5026436 is a problem that affected searchindexer.exe, causing it to stop working after signing out. Another notable fix is for Server Message Block (SMB) shared folders. Previously, users encountered errors such as “Not enough memory resources” or “Insufficient system resources” when attempting to access SMB-shared folders. The update rectifies this problem, ensuring seamless access to shared folders without any resource-related hurdles.
Furthermore, this update addresses several other issues such as unexpected password expiration notices, malfunctioning of the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS), and failures of scheduled tasks using stored local user account credentials. Additionally, it resolves issues with Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) clusters, dot sourcing failures in Windows PowerShell, limitations in accessing event sources in Event Viewer, and application failures when performing certain actions in a callback.
