Fixed a VPN connection error in Windows 10


An optional one information for Widnows 10 was recently released by Microsoft, to repair one error VPN connectivity, which has endangered users.  

The error resulted in the users not be able to see the connection status or have a limited connection when trying to connect to a VPN or proxy server. Besides, some applications could not connect. 

These applications included Office 365, Outlook, some versions of MS Edge and Teams of Microsoft, which were unable to connect to Internet. As the company said, most of these applications use WinHTTP and WinInet to connect to the Internet.

This was a worrying phenomenon, especially at a time when more and more people are working from home and need VPN services to gain access to their company's resources.

The easiest way to fix the VPN connectivity error is to install the optional Microsoft release that is available for various versions of Windows 10, including 1909, 1903, 1809, 1803, 1709.

Whatever the case, Microsoft is trying to cover up the problem that it knew existed. The company acknowledged in an earlier support document that the error exists on all Windows 10 machines that have the February update installed (KB4535996).

The update comes at a time when the pandemic has hit a very significant proportion of the planet and companies around the world find it difficult to follow the timetable they have set for releasing their updates. Microsoft has already frozen future versions of the Edge Chromium browser, following in its footsteps. Google. The company has also announced that it will freeze all future updates that have nothing to do with safety for Windows 10, starting in May 2020.
