IT admins Once you obtain this patch, XPS Viewer might fail to open XML Paper Specification (XPS) documents in certain non-English languages, including some Chinese and Japanese character encodings. This problem has impact on both Open XML Paper Specification (OXPS) and XML Paper Specification (XPS) files. When struggling with this issue, you may come across an error, “This page cannot be displayed” within XPS Viewer or it might stop responding and have high CPU usage with continually increasing memory usage. When the error is triggered, if XPS Viewer is not closed it might reach up to 2.5 GB of memory usage before closing suddenly.

This problem does not have impact on most home users. The XPS Viewer is no longer installed by default as of Windows 10, version 1803 and must be manually installed.

This problem is addressed in the LCU KB5016691. If you like to avoid this update, see the guidelines below.

This problem is settled using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Remember that it might consume a maximum of 24 hours for the resolution to propagate itself to non-managed business and consumer devices. Rebooting the device might help the resolution apply faster. For enterprise-managed devices that have already obtained an affected LCU patch and confronted this problem can fix it by installing and setting the special Group Policy listed underneath.
