.NET framework update

Starting with Windows 10 October 2018 Update, .NET Framework fixes will be delivered through a Cumulative Update for .NET Framework. This update includes quality and reliability updates and fixes that solve issues we had with previous version, such as:

  • "System.Net.Http"
  • "System.IO.Compression"
  • "Exception in CompositeFontParser.ParseFontFamilyCollectionElement" (see here)

Many customers reported that they could not run our software after installing the previous update on Windows 7 machines. We worked hard to find an effective emergency fix and workaround for our customers. These problems should now be definitely gone.
