This wouldn't be the first time I've seen an app do some crazy sh*t to Windows 10.

Last summer, a certain application (can't say the name), completely fubar'd the Start button in Explorer. Click Start button and launch the app or launch it from the Desktop shortcut and so something very specific in the app, but commonly done, and the Start button in Explorer would no longer work. Click it and nothing would happen, no opening of the menu at all.

The fun part was once it was broken, there was no getting it back. The problem persisted through shutdowns and restarts. And the is an app used on thousands of machines! Thankfully, due to how this app gets tested and deployed into production, it only hit about 50 machines when it broke.

Narrowed it down to how a certain set of controls (10+ years old) was being registered on the machine AND in combination with a certain Windows 10 O/S patch. The problem disappeared a couple of months later, after another set of patches and we changed how the vendor registered the controls in their installation.


I just spent 3 months on another production problem with the same app. A certain patch broke functionality in the app where a datagrid didn't work as expected any more. I was still working on it when another set of patches came down and the grid magically started working again. W T F ?!

Spent the last 3 weeks going through testing of three months worth of patches to find the one that broke the grid and the one that fixed it. Turns out they were both Office 2013 patches that updated MS Common Controls. W T F v2 ?! CommonControls is used by millions of applications, not just Office, and MS decided to disguise updating what amounts to O/S patches as Office patches?! W T F v3?!
