February Update Delayed Till March

Microsoft released this comment on its TechNet blog, this week, to let everyone know that the expected February update won’t arrive this month:

“Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems,” said the company.

“This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today. After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan,” added the company.

It then also released the following update to its statement:

“We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017.”
