FAQ: Abnormal SiteKiosk program terminations on Windows 10 systems after December 2015 Windows update


If you are using SiteKiosk with a SiteKiosk skin that uses the Internet Explorer engine on a Windows 10 system you may experience abnormal SiteKiosk program terminations on a number of web pages. This is due to the Windows Update KB3132372 released at the end of December 2015 to fix a Flash issue. This update causes a problem with the WebBrowser Control used by SiteKiosk to render web pages. The problem affects not only SiteKiosk but a larger number of applications including Skype, HP Solutions Center and others. Microsoft has acknowledged the problem (https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/feedback/details/2203846/kb3132372-causes-dotnet-embedded-browsercontrol-to-crash-on-sites-containing-flash) and needs to issue a patch.

UPDATE: Microsoft released KB3133431 on the 5th of January 2016. This update fixes the problem. Affected customers should make sure to apply the update.
