After installing the current patches from March 2015 applications like DigAlign or SAF 2.0 Administrator starting displaying their fonts rather ugly. It is hard to read the log output and in case of troubleshooting it could be difficult working with those displayed information.

The reason for this behaviour is based in a Microsoft patch which comes with Windows updates (KB3013455). It seems to have a problem with rendering the font 'Courier New' which is used by many applications.

Microsoft has confirmed this issue and offers a patch for different OS which won't be delivered by Windows Update. This patch must be downloaded and installed manually. Afterwards a reboot is required.
