ALERT : Microsoft Update KB4056892 - Windows 10 only
« on: 16:14:03, 08 January, 2018 »
There are a number of reports of the above update totally screwing with some ASCOM components including EQMOD. The fix is to change the authentication levels of affected COM components to CALL using DCOMCNFG but probably best to avoid the update altogether until MS release a fix.

Do we know that the problem is with MS rather than the ASCOM components?
Given that the MS update is to 'fix known problems', maybe it would be better to describe the 'best to' action as to  "avoid the update until 'ASCOM release a fix' "
Maybe it's just me - deprecating assuming everyone's problem is MS's fault

Microsoft's comment in the KB release notes that this is a "known issue" and will be "resolved" in the next release perhaps confirms the root cause of the problem.
