Microsoft announced that they will release security and reliability patches in a single Monthly Rollup update instead of as individual patches. They also announced the availability of a single Security-only rollup.
This change was effective from October 2016 onwards and applies to:
Compatibility with Oracle E-Business Suite
Microsoft Monthly Rollups and Security-only updates are intended to be backwards-compatible with all applications. Existing Windows functionality does not change.
It is expected that these updates will be fully-compatible with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 and 12.2. We expect that we will do periodic testing of selected updates, but will do not expect to release regular certification announcements for them.
EBS customers do not have to wait for explicit certification announcements before applying Microsoft Monthly Updates or Security-only updates to their Windows desktops or servers.
