  • “The page can’t be displayed” in web apps after installing June (or July) CU update for Windows 10

    Posted on August 2nd, 2016 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    Some web apps might not work after installing the June (or July) 2016 Cumulative Update for Windows 10.

    Problem

    After installing June (KB3163018) or July (KB3172985) cumulative updates for Windows 10 a specific web app was broken, when browsing to it in Internet Explorer 11 or Edge lead to ”The page can’t be displayed”.

    Investigation

    Looking at the System log in Event Log showed Schannel errors:

    A fatal alert was generated and sent to the remote endpoint. This may result in the termination of the connection. The TLS protocol defined fatal error code 40. The Windows SChannel error state is 808.

    Doing a network trace showed that the web app server negotiated the TLSCipherSuite TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA.

    Cause

    Windows as of update https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3061518 no longer support ciphers with 512-bits. Note that this KB was released in May 2016 but not anywhere stated to affect Windows 10. Nothing related to these changes points to Windows 10, but as we can conclude, these changes are introduced with June 2016 CU for Windows 10 (and thereby carried forward to July CU and any other CU to come).

    Workaround

    Use the workaround described in the registry section workaround in https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3061518 to go back to the 512-bits settings.

    Solution

    Make necessary server configuration changes to support the better ciphers.

  • Solution to problems printing PDF files from Microsoft Edge in Windows 10

    Posted on October 4th, 2015 By Andreas Stenhall + No comments

    Just a quick note to myself as well as maybe helping others out. If you open a PDF file in Microsoft Edge (Windows 10 RTM version or latest Insider Build 10547) and try to print the PDF file only one or two pages come out from the printer, over and over again.

    For example if you print a 15 page PDF file, the first page of the PDF file comes out over and over again, or the first two pages over and over again.

    Solution: Open the PDF files using Adobe Reader and print without problems.
