    Dde server window preventing shutdown


    After the last major update, my computer upon hitting shutdown, displays a pop-up stating that "The instruction
    0x00007FFFFF66CC60 referenced at 0x000000000000 the memory could not be read - Click okay to terminate"
    and behind the pop-up, windows is indicating that the DDE Server Window is preventing shutdown. Sits there until the okay to terminate is clicked.
    Thanks for any information!

    That's a known error in build 10130 and it's been addressed in build 10147.

    Hello and thanks! Have not been diligent in the recognition of the updates. The latest update as of today, still has the issue. It didn't have it prior to the latest large update. I don't recall what the last major update version was. How do I check the current version?

    Hello BunnyJ,
    Yes, got it and thank you. It is indeed 10130. Can this be updated to 10147 manually? As a matter of fact, where did run go to?
