Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) is a Microsoft term for the delivery of individual service updates to its operating systems and application programs.

Only Microsoft will have details beyond that and as this is all you provided I can't go any deeper.

Why would you ask this? Something borken?

Then it's just another subversion or "other"

In reply to: no

It's rather meaningless on its own. For this one I shrug and move onto what the issue/problem is. If there is no problem we still keep moving.
