Known issues in this update

Symptom Workaround

OpenEncryptedFileRaw will continue to work on all other versions of Windows (local and remote). This behavior is expected because we addressed the issue in CVE-2021-36942.Note If you cannot use backup software on Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 or later after installing this update, contact the manufacturer of your backup software for updates and support.
