  1. not sure why the latest itunes versions suddenly don't install nor work with Win7 effin apple didn't properly test some their recent software on Windows OSes edit - I know for sure iTunes v12.10.7.3 installed fine on my bro's laptop running Win7 SP1 x64 home edition edit2 - it appears that v12.10.10.2 of iTunes is the last version to support Win7 & Win8.1 as the v12.11.x versions like have dropped support for Win7 & 8.1 (iTunes history Wikipedia)
  2. do realize that MS discontinued support for Win7 RTM in April 2013, so that specific W7 version go no new updates afterwards
  3. several months late on this but it seems Microsoft has pulled that old KB4461522 update - no longer available from MS Catalog as searching for KB4461522 yields no results. MS article 4461522 was updated near end of May 2020 to reflect that it's gone.
  4. oooooooohhhh - new December 2020 updates for MS Office 2010 (really!) see MS support article 4583521 for new Office updates for December 2020, including Office 2010 XP users should avoid installing newly released KB4486698 update as that one installs an incompatible version of the mso.dll file for XP seems like MS hasn't really fully retired support for Office 2010 yet (otherwise they would not be releasing any new updates for it)
  5. October 2020 Updates released on 10/13 KB4580382 monthly rollup (MS support article 4580382) KB4580353 security-only update (MS support article 4580353) no new Servicing Stack update was released - KB4566426 is still the latest SSU
  6. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-home-and-pro https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-enterprise-and-education five more years of Windows 10 support until October 2025 - by that time, Windows 10 will be put out of its misery for good does not bother me as apps like O&OShutup10 take care of that
  7. I don't think so. I'm using 20H2 on one of my PCs and M$ has NOT removed the classic control panel (appwiz.cpl) as I've tested this myself MS may plan to do this starting with the 2021 versions (aka. 21H1 or 21H2)
  8. it depends on which edition of Win10 you were using some of my old PCs running LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 work just fine with using 3rd party apps like WinaeroTweaker & O&OShutup10 (and setting all my internet connections to "metered")
  9. not unless you can find a way to convert & compress the install.wim file into an install.esd
  10. a reminder that support for Office 2010 ends next Tuesday October 13, 2020 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/end-of-support-for-office-2010-3a3e45de-51ac-4944-b2ba-c2e415432789 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/endofsupport/office-2010-end-support-roadmap
  11. that's ok Jody. I may provide some new Win8.0 updates from time to time though I may not always do it regularly --- for September 2020: KB4577038 monthly rollup (MS support article 4577038) KB4577048 security-only update (MS support article 4577048) both need at least the KB4566426 servicing stack update from mid-July 2020 before installing; no new W8 servicing stack updates were released yet
  12. I saw this poll on the ZDNet site asking why are users still using Windows 7. https://www.zdnet.com/article/poll-why-are-you-still-using-windows-7/ results of that poll are posted in this recent article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/poll-results-heres-why-people-are-sticking-with-windows-7/ what do you guys think?
  13. or OP can read the following topics in other forums: from Reboot.pro forum - Install Windows 7 at UEFI Graphics Output Protocol (GOP) hardware http://reboot.pro/topic/21108-install-windows-7-at-uefi-graphics-output-protocol-gop-hardware/ from MDL forum - UefiSeven: Easily boot Windows 7 on UEFI class 3 devices https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/uefiseven-easily-boot-windows-7-on-uefi-class-3-devices.82137/ note: Win7's default vga.sys driver only supports BIOS systems and hangs/freezes on pure UEFI (no CSM) systems; USB3 & 3rd party graphics drivers needed to
  14. that has been proven wrong with this app which I use regularly
  15. the LTSB/LTSC editions of Win10 seem to work well on my old PCs (2nd gen Intel core, AMD Socket AM3+ cpu & older based pcs) - at least those editions get 5 years of mainstream support & another 5 years of extended support for a total of 10 years. and I don't have to deal with having to install big win10 feature updates the non-LTSB/C editions get shorter support life spans depending on each Win10 release (see MS Windows Lifecycle Fact sheet)
