You may observe the following error on Windows Server 2016 immediately after OS startup:
This “has stopped working” part tells us that some unhandled exception occurred, so we can switch over to Event Viewer to find some more details about it:
Exception details are the following:
Faulting application name: svchost.exe_CDPUserSvc_65df7, version: 10.0.14393.0, time stamp: 0x57899b1c
Faulting module name: cdp.dll, version: 10.0.14393.1715, time stamp: 0x59b0d38c
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000000000193cf5
Faulting process id: 0x1b14
After quick research I found out that this error was introduced with some Microsoft updates and to resolve it on Windows Server 2016 14393.1884 you just need to apply another update 🙂 More specifically you need to install KB4053579, which can be downloaded from Windows Update Catalog. Applying this update resolves this error.
I have the same error on Windows Server 2016 14393.2759, do I need to install this quite old fix?
I would say yes, if there is no fix which supersede/includes this fix already in place.
