So, I’m confused. Is it needed to install this update to central site? do u have new info about this? A lot of Thanks!
Hi Ivan ! In my case, I’ve installed this on CAS as well to get the patch level for all the servers.
I’ve installed patch two days ago and still had error about MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup.msi after installing clients. Do you know something about this problem?
Only KB2756872 resolved my problem.
I have this update and I’m still getting the error. l Couldn’t verify ‘C:\WINDOWS\ccmsetup\MicrosoftPolicyPlatformSetup.msi’ authenticode signature. Return code 0x800b0101
I can’t even uninstall and reinstall KB2756872
