The issue arises when this update is installed. It was released on January 3 2018 by Microsoft in order to correct security bugs in Intel chips. These bugs made all x86/64 devices’ and some ARM models’ memories vulnerable to being read by other processes.
The problem affects the following systems after updates released by Microsoft after January 3:
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2
- Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016
Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 systems were NOT affected.
Important: All affected versions have updates that fix the problem.
Spotting the issue
In addition to stopping the E3 Server, the bug will also write a line in the logs similar to this:
0xD44 0x2200 LOCALSERVER__ CreateDomain: E3Run failed to attach SharedMemory (80070005) for domain 'C:projeto.dom' 14
Elipse E3/Power 3.5 or higher are affected by this issue; this happens because these tools share memory in the processes. Intel chips are not the only one affected by this issue, but also some AMD settings.
To uninstall KB4056892 manually:
Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Resources > Display Installed Updates
Select KB4056892 and click Uninstall. After a few minutes with no progress or update bars, a message to reboot the system will be displayed. Click Restart now.
The Windows 10 version is then reverted back to Build 16299.125.
Microsoft acknowledges the failure and made updates available to fix the problem.
