As I mentioned on the earlier article, I was creating a new VM with Windows Server 2012 R2 and during the course, the VSCode was not responding. As part of that, I tried various things and updated the Windows Server itself. During that, found an interesting stuff.

I was downloading the KB2919355 from the URL https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42334

The download is not a single update. It has a lot of minor Knowledge Bases inside it. Hence, downloaded everything. But the problem was what was the order of the installation.

The download consists of the below KBs.


And the order, which I identified using trial and error with a lot of mistakes is as follows.

First we need to install clearcompressionflag.exe and the order is as follows.

1. KB2919355

2. KB2932046

3. KB2959977

4. KB2937592

5. KB2938439

6. KB2934018

Spent few hours around this and thought of sharing to the community, which will help others.

Happy Coding,
