    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    If they do release an ARM version of Edge, it will probably be ARM64 because of the whole Windows 10 on ARM effort they've recently been pushing. AFAIK Windows 8.x RT was made for ARM32.

    Unofficial Drivers For RTX

    OK, so from what I've gathered, you managed to mod the nVidia RTX drivers to work on Vista? Have you tested them? Do you have screenshots proving the mod works? Just posting a bunch of files in the wrong section of the forum (this could've been posted in the Windows Vista category) without any kind of description doesn't help people understand why this was posted.

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Ok, I've had time to update the repository with the January and February updates. Just in time, before Microsoft unleash the March ones. Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4487023 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4480957 and KB4487019 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4486474 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4483457 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4483455 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4483451 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup") Added .NET Security Only Updates with: -KB4480084 and KB4483482 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security Only") -KB4480076 and KB4483474 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security Only") -KB4480072 and KB4483470 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security Only") Added Extra updates KB4486459, KB4487354 and KB4490514 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file Funny enough, the timezone update KB4486459 does not replace the previous KB4468323. Also worth noting that KB4487354 in the extras folder is not needed if you install the Monthly Rollups. That is all for now https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w EDIT: I've rearranged the repository for easier navigation. Now the pre-Monthly Rollup Security Updates are in a folder named "Security Updates (May 2017-August 2018)"

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Wow, I made that post quite a while ago... Yes, I've already figured it out regarding POSReady 7. Both Windows Thin PC and POSReady 7 are derived from Embedded Standard 7, meaning all of the OS is componetized. Updates made only for those specific variants of NT 6.1 don't work on regular W7 but, luckily for us, MS tries to make its job easier and Monthly Rollups are universal for all NT 6.1 variants. Considering they will be selling Extended Support until 2023, I doubt they will start making a distinction between those 2 product lines.

    Lite program for Windows Longhorn

    Do you have a plan, budget, milestones and deadlines for such a project? I'm sorry, but you just register into a forum and the first thing you do is ask for people to make a program for you? What did you expect?

    (Project) Legacy Windows Updates reopened

    So, this solution would be limited to what is archived in archive.org. That is kind of a limitation for everyone except EN-US systems. I recently tried and compile Windows 95 updates in PT-PT, and most (if not all) of the links I found were dead or not archived.
  8. Wow, this is excellent news for Windows 8.0 users! The last Internet Explorer upgrade Microsoft will ever release for a Windows platform. Feels like a historic moment.

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    Even though updates directed at Windows Embedded 7 are structurally different, because they have to target individual packages since the OS is entirely modular, unlike standard Windows 7, they will be providing extended support to Professional and Enterprise users. Although we probably won't have access to those updates, I very much doubt that MS will go to the trouble of doing different kinds of updates for POSReady 7 and the paying volume license costumers who are using the Extended Support. My guess is that POSReady 7 updates will be identical to those supplied to Professional and Enterprise users after EOL, like it has been so far.

    Update Win 7, or Not ?

    I don't get why people are saying Windows 7 is EOL on 2020... We have at least until the end of 2021

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Windows 8.0 sure doesn't get any love... To remedy this, I've got a big repository update for ya! Brace yourselves, it's gonna be a big post. Here's the usual: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4471330 (located on the root directory of the repository) Replaced Flash Player Security update with KB4471331 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Update, KB4471326 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update KB4483187 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4470629 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/.NET Framework 3.5 Updates/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470623 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/.NET Framework 4.5.2 Updates/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470638 for .NET 4.6.x-4.7.x (located in "/.NET Framework 4.6.x-4.7.x Updates/Security and Quality Rollup") Added .NET Framework September Security Only Updates: -KB4470601 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/.NET Framework 3.5 Updates/Security Only Updates") -KB4470492 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/.NET Framework 4.5.2 Updates/Security Only Updates") -KB4470492 for .NET 4.6.x-4.7.x (located in "/.NET Framework 4.6.x-4.7.x Updates/Security Only Updates") Also decided to install Server 2012 on a VM where I installed all of Windows 8.0 EOL updates and searched WU for the remaining updates. This was the result: A bunch of non security updates that I didn't include on my repository! I have fixed this, so here's a more detailed list: KB3055343 - Stop error code 0xD1, 0x139, or 0x3B and cluster nodes go down in Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 KB3102429 - Update that supports Azerbaijani Manat and Georgian Lari currency symbols in Windows KB3125424 - LSASS deadlocks cause Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012 not to respond KB3137061 - Windows Azure VMs don't recover from a network outage and data corruption issues occur KB3137726 - "VSS_E_PROVIDER_VETO" error occurs when VSS restore fails in Windows Server 2012 KB3137916 - "0x00000027" Stop error and unexpected restart in Windows Server 2012 KB3138378 - Update for Journal.dll binary in Windows KB3147071 - Connection to Oracle database fails when you use Microsoft ODBC or OLE DB Driver for Oracle or Microsoft DTC in Windows Do note that even though the description for these updates makes it seem as these are fixes specific to Server 2012 they also apply to Windows 8.0 (in some of the KB they specifically say it also applies to Windows 8 Embedded, not to mention some of the updates are also available for W7 and W8.1) There's also an important update I didn't include in the list, because I thought it is too important to not be mentioned exclusively. That is: KB3140245 - Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows As you can see, adding support to new security protocols seems important in keeping Windows 8.0 relevant and up to date. You do need to do a few extra steps to fully enable the update's functionality, so I've included a folder with everything you need in the repository. All of the updates I've mentioned so far are in the Extras folder, in case you want to install them. Available in both x64 and x86 flavors https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Late December repository update... Just a few more days for the January patches. Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4471325 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Update, KB4471319 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update KB4483187 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with: -KB4471102 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/NET 3.5 SP1/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470637 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470640 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup") Added .NET Security Only Updates with: -KB4470633 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/NET 3.5 SP1/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470493 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup") -KB4470500 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup") https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w This must be the first time since Vista's EOL that I've seen an update for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. Don't forget that even if you have .NET 3.5 installed every .NET 2.0 update still applies!

    @someguy25 that link is old... I've been using this one for quite some time: https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ In any case, you can usually refer to my signature for the latest link (or my latest update in this thread).

    Broken mouse scroll on Steam?

    That option is only available in Windows 10... Looks like Steam Support just gave you a generic answer.
