    Hi all, we've just been alerted to a potential issue caused by a Windows Update, which may result in decreased Shaded View performance. (Thanks again Jason!) There is a lot of talk about this, as you can see by performing a Google search for "KB5001330"... https://www.google.com/search?q=KB5001330.

    For now, the only advice we can offer is to not install this Update. Unfortunately though, you may not have a choice in the matter, as Windows will do everything possible to install its Updates, eventually. If it did get installed, advice on how to remove it (assuming it's affecting you) can be found in the Google search above.

    We are currently investigating this report and will provide more information as it becomes available. However, the only likely solution here will be for Microsoft to address the problem in yet another Update.

    What’s the status of this issue? Can we safely update our windows systems yet?

    Thanks Jason. I appreciate you jumping in; sorry for not coming back earlier, to post more info. After installing KB5001330, we did not notice any problems with the files we tested (but of course, it would be unrealistic for us to test every single possible scenario). We WERE as thorough as possible with our tests, though.

    @Floriaan, if you haven't installed this update but wish to do so, you may proceed of course -- but be prepared to remove it as per the instructions Jason posted above. In addition to this, I strongly recommend creating a System Restore Point before you start the installation; with that, you have peace of mind that in case something goes wrong when you uninstall (IF you have to uninstall, I mean) you can go back to the same system state as before you installed in the first place.


    Cheers,

    Dany
