Microsoft provides the Windows Update Service that securely distributes updates and bug fixes in the form of patches. Microsoft schedules the release of patches via Windows Update every second Tuesday of each month, which has unofficially become known as 'Patch Tuesday'.

To provide customers the confidence that they can install Microsoft patches without adversely affecting existing installations of ClearSCADA, a set of regression tests are run on currently supported ClearSCADA versions and their supported server and workstation Microsoft Windows Operating System versions. These regression tests are run on the newly-released Windows patches monthly, with the results published on this page for reference once they are released.


{note}
Any out-of-band (unscheduled) patch released by Microsoft is not tested until the next 'Patch Tuesday' scheduled patches are released, at which point the out-of-band patch will be tested alongside the scheduled patches.

Only Microsoft Windows Server, Workstation, .NET and Internet Explorer security and general updates are tested, any other Microsoft products such as Microsoft Office and Windows Defender are not included within the approval testing.

Third party patches such as those provided by SAP (Crystal Reports Editor), Oracle (Java) and Adobe (Reader) are not included within the testing.
h2. Adoption of Rollup Updates

From October 2016, ClearSCADA has adopted Microsoft's new 'Rollup updates' for patch management, which is a single package containing all Security and Operating System updates for the month. This monthly package is also cumulative, combining new monthly patches together with existing ones so there only a single package to apply to your Operating System.

As part of our monthly Microsoft patch testing activities, the ClearSCADA team will verify that all updates included within the monthly package are compatible with supported versions of ClearSCADA and Windows Operating Systems. Our Microsoft Update report will be updated accordingly to reflect this change, and will include a link to the Microsoft website containing details of the individual updates.

It is anticipated that the results of the next round of Microsoft patch testing for July 2018 will be published here by *July 27th 2018*.
