Important Announcement: Windows 10 Update v2004 Breaking Siemens Software

 

 

The latest Windows 10 update v2004, released May 2020, has a bug that prevents NX1884, Simcenter 3D 2019.2 (v1884), and all prior releases from launching; this includes the interactive launch in native, managed mode as well as invoking any NX session using external custom NXOpen applications. The bug also impedes a user to launch Teamcenter Visualization or any integration that uses the SOA Client, Foundation Viewer in RAC, and Tecnomatix.  

 
 

 

Resolution:

We recommend that you do not update Windows 10 to v2004. Our investigation shows that the bug is in the Windows update, specifically a bug in the universal C-runtime with the function strerror() in ucrtbase.dll. We are working with Microsoft to fix this issue; we also recommend that you contact Microsoft if you have already updated Windows 10 to this release, or delay your Windows update to a version that has a fix for this issue.

 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. We will inform you when there is a fix available for this issue; our recommendation is to delay your Windows 10 v2004 update. For more information, please contact the Global Technical Access Center in your local region or area.
