  1. 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.
  2. That one would actually save a lot of space, considering some of the bundled UWP packages (such as the Photos app) occupy more than 200MB!
  3. 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. 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?
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
  6. 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. https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w
  7. Lol, Microsoft cares so little about Vista that they just straight up say: "Install Server 2008 patches, we don't care..."
  8. 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).
  9. There's also Paint.NET that requires .NET Framework 4.7.2. Anyone can test that program
  10. Has anyone tried the final .NET Framework 4.8 release? I don't have a Vista VM at hand right now. https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet-framework/net48
  11. If you would've told a costumer from 2001 that their purchase of Windows XP would get updates until 2019 they would not believe you! Yet, here we are with a new patch out of the regular POSReady 2009 support window
  12. That would be the dream... I also undertook recently an effort to preserve PT-PT updates, and while I got some luck with some of the updates released in the early 2000s until 2004, after that they started hosting every new update in that URL format you've posted, making it almost impossible to retrieve them. At the absolute limit, one knowing the filename would run a random character generator to try and find the correct URL, but that would be extremely time consuming.
  13. Just noticed this post. I'll give the script a try and I'll report back. If everything works fine, I'll try and include it with my Server 2008 and Server 2012 update repository. Thanks for sharing this and welcome to MSFN! Hope you have a great time here
  14. Actually, I've already created an ISO file containing updates for 2000, XP, Server 2K3 and Vista. The ISO also includes Windows Live Essentials 2009 (XP compatible) and 2010 (Vista compatible). The problem is that updates for NT 5.x are language specific, so I only accumulated PT-PT updates. If there's any interest in releasing that to the public do let me know. (I also managed to salvage some PT-PT updates and hotfixes for Windows ME and 98 before they closed down the hotfix service.)
  15. From a fellow Portuguese countryman to another I say: "Bem vindo!".
  16. The IE11 install is offered as a regular Windows Update. In order to modify it we would need to resign the modified .mum files so that Windows 8.0 would be contemplated in them. This, unfortunately, requires access to Microsoft's tools to do so, something we just don't have at our disposal.
  17. Unfortunately, it's impossible to install IE11 on regular 8.0, since they only included Server 2012 and Embedded 8 Standard on the update files description, regardless of pre-requisite updates. Abbodi1406 also confirmed this in MDL (and he was the one that got Powershell 5.1 to install on Windows 8.0).
  18. The Easter bunny hasn't forgotten about our favorite NT 6.2 OS: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4493451 (located on the root directory of the repository) Replaced Flash Player Security update with KB4493478 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4489884 and KB4493450 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4493435 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post September 2016)") Added .NET Framework September Security Only Updates: -KB4488660 for .NET 3.5 SP1 (located in "/.NET Framework 3.5 Updates") -KB4488668 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/.NET Framework 4.5.2 Updates") -KB4488664 for .NET 4.6.x-4.7.x (located in "/.NET Framework 4.6.x-4.7.x Updates") Added extra update KB4490128 (located in "/Extras (Non Security Updates)") The sad news of the month is that IE11 is not Windows 8.0 compatible. I tried extracting the MSU package and even the CAB file, but analyzing the update.mum I noticed that they only included support for Server 2012 and Embedded: <parent> <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft-Windows-ServerCore-Package" version="6.2.9200.16384" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" buildType="release"></assemblyIdentity> <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft-Windows-Embedded-SKU-Foundation-Package" version="6.2.9200.16384" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" buildType="release"></assemblyIdentity> </parent> Which means Internet Explorer 10 will only have security updates until the beginning of 2020. I would suggest doing what @Jody Thornton's been doing and disabling IE10 altogether from the "Windows Features" function when the time comes. As for everything else, the .NET updates are only for adding support for the new Japanese calendar and the new timezone update does not replace previous timezone updates. https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ
  19. Happy Easter, everybody! I am the Easter bunny bringing my Easter eggs: Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4493471 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added a new Servicing Stack update KB4493730 (located on the root directory of the repository) Added Security Only Updates, KB4489876 and KB4493458 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4493435 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)") Added .NET Updates: -KB4488661 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2") -KB4488669 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2") -KB4488666 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1") Added Extra updates KB4490128 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file A few notes, as usual: the build number bump is certainly an interesting phenomenon, but sadly an uneventful one (it should've been a new Service Pack). The new Servicing Stack update was released to support SHA2 signing of updates, but no accompanying update (just as a reminder, Windows 7 had both the SS and an additional update). The .NET updates are not Rollups or Security Only, but simply standalones to add support for the new Japanese Calendar, so there's no real need to apply them if you live outside The Land Of The Rising Sun . Lastly, for some reason the new timezone update KB4490128 does not supersede the old timezone updates in the Catalog, so I added it to the Extras folder instead of replacing the older ones with it. https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w
  20. They are porting Chromium to ARM64 so it'll work with Windows 10 on ARM. Recompiling that to ARM32 would require some knowledge of the instruction set, I'd speculate: https://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft-and-google-are-working-together-to-bring-chrome-to-windows-on-arm Firefox also works on ARM64 with the latest dev versions: https://www.windowscentral.com/mozilla-releases-first-nightly-build-firefox-windows-10-arm
  21. My apologies. When I needed to download a hotfix I usually used that link and it redirected to the EULA page. Seems like Microsoft closed that loophole...
  22. Actually, it hasn't been shutdown. Just buried. Use this URL: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hotfix/kbhotfix?kbnum=2990184&amp;kbln=en-us&amp;forceorigin=esmc Accept the EULA and it will redirect you to the KB4343220 page. No worries. Just click the URL again and you'll be in the hotfix download page. Then change the URL to the update KB you want to download Are there any others? I intend on making a compilation of POSReady patches in PT-PT language.
  23. Should also work for newer Ryzen's, seeing you can use the same chipset (in my case B350) with the same functioning drivers. The only thing that's incompatible are the GPU drivers for the Ryzen APUs, since the last AMD GPU drivers compatible with Vista were released in mid-2015.
  24. You can already use the Windows 10 version they're offering to install on any (supported) Windows version you want. Just find a way to download the installer.
  25. Looks can be deceiving, my friend. Just because the embedded PkgProperties on the MSU file says that doesn't mean the update.mum inside the CAB file does Just to prove my point I went ahead and installed Windows 8.0 Enterprise on VMWare to test installing the latest .NET Framework 4.8 preview update (build 3745). If you try to install it normally from the executable, it will fail with an unsupported OS message, as you'd expect: So I basically extracted the CAB files relating to 8.0 from the executable and installed them through Dism: And it seemed to go over just fine. Maybe you'd like to try it and see if you get the same results. I haven't tested this extensively, mind you.
