Hotfix KB4488598 Prerequisite Check

Before we install hotfix KB4488598, I would like to perform prerequisite check first. This is because I had seen lot user comments who experienced prerequisite check warnings while installing SCCM 1810 hotfixes. We know that with SCCM 1810, the prerequisite check is more resilient. Warnings can be ignored but not errors else they might halt the hotfix installation.
