Patch Analyzer recommending update 3164398 for SQL2016 when newer CU is installed

by Mar 31, 2017

On our SQL2016 instances, Patch Analyzer returns an 'unsupported level' and recommends the KB3164398 hotfix:

"You should install KB3138367 if the build version of %SystemRoot%system32msvcr120.dll is not 12.0.40649.5 or later. To check the file version, open Windows Explorer, locate and then right-click the %SystemRoot%system32msvcr120.dll file, click Properties, and then click the Details tab."

two issues here:

1. The servers involved are already at 12.0.40649.5

2. The instances involved have had kb3207512 installed. Shouldn't that supercede 3138367 anyhow?
