  1. KB4074852 replaces KB4018556 so you must fix the same type of error: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/894199/software-update-services-and-windows-server-update-services-changes-in https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4018556/title

  3. True. I just read you after losing the whole morning trying to fix it. The strange thing is that it fails in some computers and in others it does not. My fix: Tools, Internet Options, Advanced options, activate Use SSL 2.0 (by default it is not active and when you click Restore advanced settings it is deactivated). It seems that from time to time MU/WU should download C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\WebSetup\wuident.cab and it should be by SSL 2.0. Once downloaded, SSL 2.0 is not necessary and it continues to work for a while.
  4. As the problem is only in the oleaut32.dll file of KB4074852 and not in the whole update (Kernel32.dll, ntdll.dll, Ole32.dll, Rpcss.dll, Updspapi.dll) this is what I have done to fix it. I do not know if it will be a good procedure but it works: - Search in C:\WINDOWS for all oleaut32.dll files - Copy oleaut32.dll 5.1.2600.7248 550KB to C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache - Rename to C:\WINDOWS\system32\oleaut32zzzzz.dll 5.1.2600.7424 534KB - Wait a while for the system to automatically copy it to C:\WINDOWS\system32 - Restart (It may give some errors while shutting down the first time) Malwarebytes work, Find target work... --------------------------------------------------- I add that the list of cpu affected by Meltdown / Spectre is increasing and is already in version 7: https://www.techarp.com/guides/complete-meltdown-spectre-cpu-list/ The Core 2 Duo already appear.
  5. Another possible failure of KB4074852 with CDBurnerXP: https://forum.cdburnerxp.se/topic/10322-after-windows-xp-patches-cdburner-does-not-start-and-show-error/?tab=comments#comment-39393
  6. After installing the updates, it searches again and other ones will come out. Repeat the cycle until they do not come out anymore.
  7. When there are pending updates to download and more if they are large as cumulative IE8, WU / MU takes even days. Once you have updated and there are no more left, it is normal for WU / MU to take very little time. The search time is not fixed, it depends on the number and type of updates that are pending download. That's why sometimes you will go slow and other times fast.
  8. I confirm that KB4074852 errors occur: 1.- On computers with Windows XP hack PosReady. 2.- In WMWare with Windows XP hack PosReady. 3.- In WMWare with Windows Embedded PosReady 2009 (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11196)
  9. I've tried with VMWare: 1.- Install Windows Embedded PosReady 2009. 2.- I try the button of a shortcut and it works well. 3.- Download KB4074852 and install it. 4.- I try the button and it does not work anymore. The error does not only appear in Windows XP Hack Posready, also in the original Windows Embedded Posready 2009.
  10. I confirm that the button does not work and Malwarebytes fails. It will be necessary to deinstall only that update KB4074852. PD: After uninstalling everything works again.
  11. IE8 KB4074736 installed manually from the catalog. After:
  12. Updates from W7 Embedded to W7 since January 14, 2020

    For now there is no problem, but when the extended support of Windows 7 ends on January 14, 2020, Windows Embedded 7 updates may remove the "Windows 7.0 Client SP1; Windows 7.0 Client" from the properties of * .msu and can not be installed now. Possibly we should extract the files from the * .msu and install the * .cab manually.
  13. Updates from W7 Embedded to W7 since January 14, 2020

    I have tried with VMWare: 1.- Start Windows Embedded PosReady 7. 2.- Windows Update and copy several KB numbers that come out of Windows Embedded Standard 7. 3.- Go to the Microsoft catalog and download them. They are * .msu. 4.- Start Windows 7. 5.- Execute the KB.msu and install perfectly. 6.- During the installation in C: \ a temporary folder appears with the .txt of properties of the update: ApplicabilityInfo = "Windows 7.0 Client SP1; Windows 7.0 Client; Windows 7.0 Embedded SP1; Windows 7.0 Embedded;" Applies to = "Windows 6.1" Build Date = "2011/04/28" Company = "Microsoft Corporation" File Version = "1" Installation Type = "FULL" Installer Engine = "Component Based Servicing - WUSA.exe" Installer Version = "" KB Article Number = "2532531" Language = "ALL" Package Type = "Security Update" Processor Architecture = "x86" Product Name = "Windows 6.1" Support Link = "http://support.microsoft.com?kbid=2532531" Conclusion: It seems that the updates are made for all versions of Windows 7 and are compatible with each other, or at least they would be the majority.
  14. Updates from W7 Embedded to W7 since January 14, 2020

    - I have tried the XP hack (WPA / PosReady) and it does not work. Keep showing normal updates. - From the normal Windows 7, I have started to install Windows PosReady 7 giving to setup.exe and it says that another operating system is detected and it will save it as windows.old, therefore, it does not update it, it is like a clean installation always. http://www.itninja.com/question/installing-windows-updates-for-windows-embedded-posready-2009-machines https://support.microsoft.com/en-za/help/934307/description-of-the-windows-update-standalone-installer-in-windows http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/install-cab-msu-updates-mu-catalog/ http://www.thewindowsclub.com/extract-cab-file-using-command-line "wusa update.msu /extract" -> *.cab, *.xml, *.txt -> "expand *.cab -F:*" ?????? "dism /online /add-package:*.cab" ????? Manually copy the files if the versions already installed are smaller. Those that can not be copied by being in use, would have to restart and use the recovery console or do so from a USB WinPE, USB Linux or USB Wifislax for example.
  15. Updates from W7 Embedded to W7 since January 14, 2020

    Somewhere I read that does not work on W7. Anyway, I'm going to try it in VMWare: 1- I install W7. 2- Hack registry for POSReady. 3.- Check for updates to see if I receive POSReady.
