After you installed Security Update For Exchange Server 2016 CU7 (KB4045655) you are no longer able to use OWA or ECP on your Exchange Server 2016.

When you try OWA on your Exchange Server 2016 you get “Something went wrong. Your request couldn't be completed. HTTP Status code: 500.”

And you get ‘Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Exchange.Common, Version=15.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

The ‘reason’ that this happened is that the security patch was not completely installed because it was not ran from an elevated command prompt and here is how you do that

  1. Start an elevated command prompt
