    Hi,
    Based on my check, KB4013429 is applicable to Windows Server 2016 not for 2019.
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/march-14-2017-kb4013429-os-build-14393-953-98311d1b-25aa-ea9a-5f9e-335c35d5f9d7
    Also it was a very old monthly security update. Because Window Server End of servicing, Microsoft Catalog seems to have stopped downloading now.
    For Windows Server 2019, I suggest that you could check for update to install the latest security update. The latest security update is KB5003703 for Windows Server 2019.
    Please check the Windows Server 2019 update history below:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/june-15-2021-kb5003703-os-build-17763-2028-preview-687c70f6-98ed-4440-9cc7-72c9ef735bfe
    Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
    Best Regards,
    Carl
