SDL Trados Studio 2017 SR1 Cumulative Update 12 (CU12) addresses the following issues:

SDL Trados Studio Application

The main change in CU12 is in the licensing mechanism for Trados Studio 2017 that will benefit all users who are upgrading their Trados Studio instance to the new Trados Studio 2019 release. When going through the upgrade process for your Trados Studio license and generating the Trados Studio 2019 upgrade license, that 2019 license will contain a specific capability that authorizes both Trados Studio 2019 and Trados Studio 2017 to be licensed on the same machine. This mechanism will allow all Trados Studio 2017 users to be able to continue running both Trados Studio 2017 and Trados Studio 2019 on the same machine, even though they have only purchased an upgrade license. This way you can continue working in scenarios where your end customer might specifically require Trados Studio 2017 and not yet Trados Studio 2019. Additional details:
The mechanism described here works for local licenses. It is not supported for network licenses. For network licenses with mixed version scenarios, contact your SDL account manager.
Trados Studio 2017 CU12 can use both any existing Trados Studio 2017 license as well as the Trados Studio 2019 upgrade license. As long as you do not deactivate the Trados Studio 2017 license in the product, Trados Studio 2017 will remain activated. If you return the 2017 license, you will not be able to reactivate your Trados Studio 2017 license until you install CU12 delivered here. Installing CU12 then allows Trados Studio 2017 to use the 2019 license.
Importantly, if you did deactivate the Trados Studio 2017 license before you have installed CU12 delivered here, you will not be able to get CU12 through AutoUpdate, as it needs a running instance of Trados Studio to update itself to CU12. Since you have deactivated Trados Studio 2017 CU11 or earlier, it can no longer find any license and it will not allow you to run AutoUpdate. If you are in this scenario, you can get the installer for manual installation under "Downloading and Installing Cumulative Updates" below to address this problem. (Another alternative in this scenario is to run the AutoUpdate executable that will launch the AutoUpdate process without requiring Studio to run. You can find the AutoUpdate client here: C:\ProgramData\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\Studio5\Updates\TrueUpdate.exe. Double click this .exe file in Windows Explorer to run the AutoUpdate client.)
In summary, as long as you have not deactivated Trados Studio 2017, you can install CU12 through AutoUpdate as normal. Once you have installed it, you can deactivate it and the Trados Studio 2019 upgrade license will be used instead. This is what CU12 enables. If you have not deactivated Trados Studio 2017 yet, it will just carry on working - an existing license will take precedence.
The mechanism described in the above points is valid for the upgrade process from Studio 2017 to 2019 licenses only. For Studio 2015 and earlier versions, this process does not apply.
Other changes in CU12:
Fixed issue where the Update TM check box was unavailable from Trados Studio for WorldServer TMs for all SDL WorldServer 11 versions before 11.3 (CRQ-9405).
Fixed issue where the AutoUpdate notification box did not always display its contents properly (LTGS-1948).
Fixed the Object reference not set to an instance of an object error when closing documents with revisions under certain circumstances (LG-13986).
