    Vistapocalypse said: "KB4019276 was superseded by KB4056564" --> I dont have KB4019276 installed but actually I have KB4056564. So all I have to do now is that I have to run the reg file? But the reg file name is: "Windows6.0-KB4019276-TLS-x64"

    Yeah, though I still need to revise it for x64.

    I'm noticing that the Reg files in the x64 and x86 folders appear to be identical, which concerns me because I believe x64 would require a somewhat more complex Reg file due to the presence of OSVersion values in Wow6432Node (see @WinClient5270's post here).

    I'll need to take a look at it, because I created that reg file on a XP installation I did recently.


  3. Time for the August repository update:

    • Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4512518 (located on the root directory of the repository)
    • Added Security Only Update, KB4517302, (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)")
    • Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4511872 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)")

    No Flash Player update that I could find this month. Happy patching! :)

  4. Got some time to update the repository and also organize it:

    • Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4512476 (located on the root directory of the repository)
    • Added Security Only Update, KB4517301 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
    • Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4511872 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
    • NEW Added instructions on how to install .NET Framework 4.7.2 on the "/Extras" folder
    • NEW Added a Reg file to enable TLS 1.1 and 1.2 after installing KB4019276 located on the "/Extras" folder
    • NEW Reorganized the old 2017-2018 individual security updates so they're easier to manage, removing every superseded update and putting them all in one folder. Check them out for yourself!

    https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w

    This was a slow month for updates (makes my job a lot easier). Hope the repository has been helping everyone :)

    My Win 10 setup has to rock 100 processes just to sit there idle (and that's down from some 130+ out of the box)!

    You can tweak that so that it behaves more like previous versions of Windows. MS decided to split each service running into a dedicated svchost. With a simple registry edit that increases the RAM threshold for this splitting to occur (I like to set the limit to 512GB :P) you can get back your low process count. Just follow this guide.

    can you guys check if the KB4462930 flash update for Win8.0 is superseded/replaced by newer flash updates like a recent one such as KB4503308?

    I'm kinda arguing/debating about this with abbodi in another forum as he seems to have some doubts about it

    From what I understood, the update is superseded but they forgot to mark it as such in WU.

    In fact, if you go to the KB pages for both and check out the file information you can see that both of them update the same components.

    I'm now using Win8.0 on a backup hard drive on a custom built PC with an AMD Phenom II X4 925 cpu w/ 4gb of RAM.

    I don't think the CPU patches for Spectre/Meltdown apply to AMD CPUs. That's probably why you aren't experiencing "slowdowns".

    Sure, it'd be nice if you uploaded them. And by all you also mean all pre SP1 and pre SP2 updates?

    Only post SP2, but I do include the installers for SP1 and SP2. What I meant by "all" was also the hotfixes that Microsoft released that were not available in WU (more for x64 than x86, since I only managed to collect from MS's hotfix service before it closed for the former).

  9. Wow, 3 months without any updates. Is anybody using Windows 8.0 at this stage?

    • Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4507462 (located on the root directory of the repository)
    • Added Servicing Stack update KB4504418 (located on the root directory of the repository)
    • Added Flash Player Security update KB4503308 (located on the root directory of the repository) while removing any previous versions left
    • Added Security Only Updates, KB4499158, KB4503263 and KB4507464 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)")
    • Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4507434 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)")
    • Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality Rollup Updates with:
      -KB4507002 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/.NET Framework 3.5 Updates/Security and Quality Rollup")
      -KB4507000 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/.NET Framework 4.5.2 Updates/Security and Quality Rollup")
      -KB4506995 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 Security Only Updates:
      -KB4495607 and KB4506974 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/.NET Framework 3.5 Updates/Security Only Updates")
      -KB4495591 and KB4506965 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/.NET Framework 4.5.2 Updates/Security Only Updates")
      -KB4495584 and KB4506961 for .NET 4.6.x-4.7.x (located in "/.NET Framework  4.6.x-4.7.x Updates/Security Only Updates")
    • Added extra update KB4508776 and replaced all previous timezone updates with KB4501226 (located in "/Extras (Non Security Updates)")
    • Updated the readme in the Extras folder to have more information about the contained updates
    • Removed the .NET Framework 4.7.2 installer in the Extras folder until the situation about it can be better defined
    • Moved all of 2018's Security Only updates into a new folder (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)/2018")

    I recommend people install the Servicing Stack update before any other, just to be safe. That should also cover everything. I'll try and do some more tests on the latest .NET versions on Windows 8.0 to get some definitive answers about their compatibility.

  10. I've searched the Web Archive links you posted, and I managed to find the following URLs for download:

    http://download.gallery.start.com/d.dll/2~13~899~36726/OutlookSideShowGadgets.msi
    http://download.gallery.start.com/d.dl/2~13~170~36728/PowerPointRemote.msi

    Unfortunately, both links redirect to MSN and they don't seem to be archived in the Wayback Machine.

    Searching for the files in Google I found a German forum with direct link to the Outlook Side Show, but again, not working and they redirect to a support page:

    http://gallery.live.com/liveItemDetail.aspx?li=039187a2-4365-4d35-98d0-9da252d677d2&bt=1

    I wasn't able to progress any further. So unless someone, somewhere has those files on their PC, it seems these Gadgets are lost to time...

    BTW, I've seen demand for it, so I'm thinking of posting my Vista update repository that holds all of Vista's x86 and x64 updates from the beginning until its EOL (April 2017). Useful if you want to update your system offline without using WU. It's completely separate from this repository I'm updating every other month. Is there any interest?

    It is not clear to me so apologies for my ignorance or stupidity: if somebody wants to use those two registry files UCyborg has so helpfully provided provided as an alternative fix for this problem where, precisely, are they to be installed?

    Just double click' em. The registry entries in the file will be merged with you PC's registry. Quite simple, really :yes:

  13. I wonder if this problem manifests in Windows Vista, 8.x and the versions of 10 that still have GameUX (I think they removed the Games Explorer in version 1803?).

    Also, it's kinda funny how the server variant of 7 is not affected by this problem, since it lacks this component.

    There doesn't appear to be any January or February 2017 updates. Is there a reason for this?

    At the time Microsoft didn't release updates for Patch Tuesday in those months. AFAIK they only released a January patch for Windows 7 and that's it.

    Edit: There are some updates that won't install on Windows 8.0 for me

    KB3185280, KB4019214, KB4040955, KB4056899, KB4096235, KB4344165, KB4457025, KB4480070, and KB4483468

    Without any kind of description of the error message there's not much I can say. I have already installed some of those updates on my test Windows 8.0 install, so I know they are compatible. Were they already installed on your system? Did you install all of the previous updates before? Were you using the correct .NET version for some of those Security and Quality Rollups?

    Thank you.

    My another question would be that the SHA2 KB4493730 update says: it doesnt applicable for my system. What should I do?

    Maybe it's already installed in your system. Vista throws that error when updates are already installed (or when they really aren't applicable, but most of the time it's the former).

    If I install "Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4503273" is it neccessary to install "Added Security Only Updates, KB4499180 and KB4503287" ??

    I think I clarify this issue in the readme located at the root of the repository, but no. Monthly Rollups contain all previous and current patches for Windows and Internet Explorer. Security Only is for folks who don't want to use Monthly Rollups and wish to select which patches to install.


  17. Here's some repository updates. Seems like the new June updates haven't caused any issues compared to the May updates(?).

    • Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4503273 (located on the root directory of the repository)
    • Added Security Only Updates, KB4499180 and KB4503287 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
    • Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4503259 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
    • Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with:
      -KB4495604 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security and Quality Rollup")
      -KB4495596 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup")
      -KB4495588 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:
      -KB4495609 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security Only")
      -KB4495593 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security Only")
      -KB4495587 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security Only")
    • Added a new folder into the root directory of the repository named SHA2 with the Servicing Stack update KB4493730 and KB4474419 (new version that fixes SHA2 support for MSI files) and a readme explaining why these updates are needed
    • Added Extra updates KB4501226 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file

    Guess this could also count has the changelog for updates released this month. If there are any issues do post to warn others.
    BTW, should I include the .NET Framework 4.7.2 installer and instructions on how to install it? Could be interesting.

    According to Microsoft, CVE-2019-0708 is so critical that they have posted customer guidance for various unsupported Windows versions. In the case of Windows Vista, Microsoft recommends installing KB4499180 (May's security-only update for Server 2008). :wacko: The KB article in turn recommends that you first install April's Servicing stack update for Windows Server 2008 SP2.

    Lol, Microsoft cares so little about Vista that they just straight up say: "Install Server 2008 patches, we don't care..."

    Paint.NET requires Windows 7. Developers throw old Windows very quickly. Only v. 3.5.11 works on Vista. Is it possible to run Paint.NET as a portable application?

    I think it requires Windows 7 because of the .NET 4.7.2.

    Either way, I believe one can simply extract the program files from the installer by simply opening it with 7-Zip (or similar).
