#BlackBerry and Windows Updates


So following on from a previous post (http://flaphead.dns2go.com/archive/2011/02/11/blackberry-administration-services-continually-stops-and-restarts.aspx) i discovered another security update that “kills” Blackberry.

So the list for BES 5.0 SP2 MR3 running on Windows 2008 R2 against Exchange Server 2010 is:

In line with BlackBerry KB23927

Ensure you do not install the following updates:

  • Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB981852)
  • Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB979683)

And additionally this one caused me some issues

  • Security Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2393802)
