You can`t get them directly to your computer using windows update but you can get them individually from Microsoft Support as Hotfixes.

Basically it states

Hotfix Request

Important

  • A hotfix is intended to correct a specific problem.
  • Apply the hotfix only to systems that are experiencing the specific problem.
  • Installing the incorrect hotfix can cause damage to your system.
  • If you are not sure whether the hotfix is the correct one for your system, do not install it.
  • Hotfixes are included in subsequent service packs that are safer to install through Microsoft Update.

Did you miss last months updates or something?

And most of you people here say XP should be dead!!


lol, it should be, but Win 7 should work properly too!

Not sure why some of us can use IE10 to download and others can not though... I did a full reset of IE10 too to be sure

No, and probably they never will


There won't be a SP2. Microsoft has reverted to childhood and are enamored with the mobile/tablet market. The era of Microsoft taking the desktop seriously appears to be over and business related issues are an afterthought. They're also trying to be cool by giving updates sexy code names like "Blue" :rolleyes:


true, this is as disappointing as its enraging, seeing microsoft trowing desktop out of the window (lol) for a mere tablet fad

Hey Jeff, how much was this thing tested? Just curious about deployment to production Server 2008 R2 DC's. Are you guys seeing any issues en-mass?

I mean, test, its your environment. I don't know how its setup, what special stuff you do, etc, you know? Part of the beauty of our stuff is so many people use it in different ways. But a lot of these fixes have been used a while in production environments, a lot of them are recommendations from our WDRAP program for desktop perf issues in enterprise environments to address particular issues.

I can't really speak on any authority on the testing we did in house, but it is a roll-up, not just a random LDR, so that should say its been through some vetting yeah. You know?

You mean to tell me that if I have every update under the sun installed on my Windows 7 machines, I would still need this?

90 freaking updates, that are actually useful and necessary? I can't believe that.

I'll keep track of this topic but sure as heck am not installing yet!

I really don't care if you install it or not. I obtained it from a reputable souce. MS decided that it was not going to put it on Windows Update. You have a problem call Ballmer.

Not quite the offline "rollup" I was expecting, oh well. Was hoping it would be the one that covers the 100+ security updates that are currently shown on WU after W7 SP1 installation. It would make work a lot easier as we prepare a few machines per day and don't have a central WSUS server, so have to instead download them per machine.
