I am using Windows 10 guest OS on Ubuntu Mate (17.04) host running VMware 14.1 on AMD Phenom II X4.
When I installed KB4056892 update, Windows 10 VM crashed and the host Linux got rebooted.
I have been using the vitual environment for about 4 years and it was the first time I witnessed a guest Windows
crashed and took host Linux with it.
Windows is indeed a powerful OS .
There are reports of imcompatibility between KB4056892 and older AMD CPUs.
I am not very clear if mine is one of those CPUs, but I blocked KB4056892 installation as a precaution.
There is a handy tool called "wushowhide.diagcab" which can be downloaded firectory from Microsoft for this purpose.
At any rate, my understanding is that this patch is mainly for Intel CPUs and AMD CPUs will not be benefitted much from it.
