    • Yes, I noticed that too. The update to CoMo is new, but I am not sure the associated KB has been updated. I am not a regular CoMo user so I can’t verify. I recently overheard a CoMo user having the problem where CoMo auto signed-in when roaming, so I assumed the fix list was new (i.e. it is listed as a fix in the KB article).

      I removed the ‘fix-list’ details and put a note about the possible stale KB until I know for sure. Thanks,

      KB969816 is 1 year old (last update was made 1 year ago). Are you sure it is a recent content, and not only a timestamp update on the COMO files?
