It's fixed: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013429/windows-10-update-kb4013429
As was already mentioned, this was a bug that was shipped with the 12B (mid-December) 2016 patches.
The issue is fully understood and has been debugged internally, and the fix was scheduled to be released as part of the 2B (mid-February) release cycle, however, as you can read about on the MSRC blog, the updates are being delayed to March.
Technically, the ADAC crash has two causes. One, there is some code in the .NET framework (which ADAC relies upon) that calls
GetLastError when it shouldn't. Two, there was a subtle change in kernel-mode GDI window ordering code that caused one of its functions (
EnableWindow) to set last error when it shouldn't.
While we wait for the fix, some workarounds that have helped others include:
- Change the desktop color depth to 16 bit (win 7 only)
- Maximize the management console window
- Disable the "Enable desktop composition" performance option (win 7 only)
- Apply the Windows Basic theme
For reference, here is a screenshot of what the error looks like:
