Last week we saw how Microsoft threw itself a cumulative update for the versions 1903 and 1909 of Windows 10 designed to provide numerous bug fixes. But it seems that Microsoft does not end of match and this compilation has returned to cause problems to the users.

In this case, the affected seem to be those who have trusted in the February cumulative update of Windows 10, 1903 and 1909 and which now find themselves with a bug that has also been acknowledged by Microsoft itself. A bug that causes the appearance of the error message KB4535996.

Without connection if you use VPN

Microsoft has recognized the existence of the fault, a bug that affects different versions of Windows. It is the case of Windows 10, version 1909; Windows 10, version 1903; Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803; Windows 10, version 1709 Server: Windows Server, version 1909; Windows Server, version 1903; Windows Server, version 1809; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server, version 1803; Windows Server, version 1709.

The consequences of this error is that those who use Microsoft productivity softwareas Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Outlook, different versions of Edge… and use a VPN client to create a virtual private network, is found with the impossibility to connect to the network.

The Redmond company has ensured that will release a patch to fix this bug at the beginning of April and while you reported the problem in the support page:

“Devices that use a manual proxy or autoconfigurado, especially with a virtual private network (VPN), may display an Internet connection status limited or no in the Indicator of network connectivity status (NCSI) in the notification area. This can happen when it is connected or disconnected to a VPN, or after changing the state between the two. The devices with this problem may also have problems getting to the Internet using applications that use WinHTTP or WinInet. The following are examples of applications that could be affected in devices in this state, but are not limited to Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Office, Office365, Outlook, Internet Explorer 11 and some versions of the Microsoft Edge”.

In the absence of a patch that will fix the bug, for now the only solution seems to be to restart the PC. If you’re affected by this bug, for now there is no more remedy than to wait for Microsoft to offer a definitive solution.
