    Devices with locale set to Croatia might not utilize the expected currency

    The correct default currency might not display or be used in Windows devices which have locale set to Croatia. This can affect applications which retrieve the device's currency for purchases or other transactions. 

    Earlier this year, Croatia joined the Eurozone, changing its currency from the Kuna to Euro. Windows Locale data for Croatia will be updated for this change in the short term.

    Workaround: Changing the currency in Windows can help. This can be accomplished via the Windows Control Panel.

    1. ​Open the "Windows Region" settings. This can be done in one of the following ways:
      1. ​Open "Control Panel" from the start menu and select "Change date, time, or number formats" under "Clock and Region"
      2. ​On your keyboard, press and hold the Windows key, then press the letter R. This will open the "Run" window. Type INTL.CPL into the Open field,
    2. ​In the Region settings, choose one of the 2 locales for Croatia:
      1. Croatian (Bosnia & Herzegovina)
      2. Croatian (Croatia)
    3. ​In this same window, click the "Additional settings" button. Once there, click the "Currency" tab.
    4. ​Change the currency symbol from "KN" to Euro, ""

    Additional information can be seen here: Currency formatting - Globalization | Microsoft Learn.

    Manually changing currency might also be an option in some applications. Although this won't change the device’s default currency, this could allow usage of the application with the desired currency preference. Some applications might not allow this manual change. Please view the settings and documentation for your applications.

    Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

    After installing KB5009586 or any updates released January 11, 2022 and later on your domain controllers, scenarios which rely on Read-only domain controllers (RODCs) or synthetic RODC machine accounts might fail to establish a Netlogon secure channel. RODC accounts must have a linked and compliant KRBTGT account to successfully establish a secure channel. Affected applications or network appliances, such as Riverbed SteelHead WAN Optimizers, might have issues joining domains or limitations after joining a domain.

    Next Steps: Affected apps and network appliances will need an update from their developer or manufacturer to resolve this issue. Microsoft and Riverbed are presently investigating and will provide an update when more information is available.

    Affected platforms:

    • ​Server: Windows Server 2022; Windows Server 2019; Windows Server 2016; Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2008 SP2

    After installing updates released January 11, 2022 or later, apps using Microsoft .NET Framework to acquire or set Active Directory Forest Trust Information might fail, close, or you might receive an error from the app or Windows. You might also receive an access violation (0xc0000005) error. Note for developers: Affected apps use the System.DirectoryServices API.

    Next Steps: This issue was resolved in the out-of-band update for the version of .NET Framework used by the app. Note: These out-of-band updates are not available from Windows Update and will not install automatically. To get the standalone package, search for the KB number for your version of Windows and .NET Framework in the Microsoft Update Catalog. You can manually import these updates into Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. For WSUS instructions, see WSUS and the Catalog Site. For Configuration Manger instructions, see Import updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Certain operations, such as rename, that you perform on files or folders that are on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV) may fail with the error, “STATUS_BAD_IMPERSONATION_LEVEL (0xC00000A5)”. This occurs when you perform the operation on a CSV owner node from a process that doesn’t have administrator privilege.

    Affected platforms:

    • ​Client: Windows 8.1; Windows 7 SP1
    • ​Server: Windows Server 2012 R2; Windows Server 2012; Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1; Windows Server 2008 SP2

    Workaround: Do one of the following:

    • ​Perform the operation from a process that has administrator privilege.
    • ​Perform the operation from a node that doesn’t have CSV ownership.

    Next steps: Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
