32-Bit Devices Affected

The CopyFile API, used by 32-bit devices to copy a new file to an existing one and monitor progress, is affected. This disruption in the copy and save functionality is a major problem for the applications.
Office Applications Also Impacted
Furthermore, the 32-bit versions of Office applications are also affected by the issue.
This latest Windows update has caused problems with copying and saving of files, particularly for 32-bit devices and Office applications. Although the update was intended to improve the system, it has instead caused disruption in the copy and save functionality.
