Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

Got this month's updates and I installed the IE10 and Flash updates.

Does anyone know when IE11 for Server 2012 is coming down?  I'm hopeful that I can install it, but then remove the browser portion (just like I do with IE10 on the Add/Remove Components).  I hope so.

 

maybe this spring perhaps :)

must wait a while for IE11 on Srv2012 since MS isn't gonna release it right away (come back in April 2019 and find out if IE11 for Server 2012 R0 shows up on MS Update Catalog)

*Internet Explorer (IE) 10 will reach end of support on January 31, 2020. From this point forward, IE 11 will be the only supported version of Internet Explorer on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Embedded 8 Standard. IE 11 will be available for piloting starting Spring of 2019.

EDIT: Also, some interesting info: Windows Thin PC, which is a slimmed down version of Windows 7, with only a x86 install option, will have support until 12th October 2021. This means Windows 7 users might have an extra year of x86 support (sorry x64 users, I can't find any obscure Windows 7 variant that has support beyond 2020).

Windows 7 Embedded Standard SP1 = October 13, 2020
Windows Embedded POSReady 7 = October 12, 2021

But Windows Embedded POSReady 7 has both x86 and x64 versions and has the same EoS as Windows Thin PC, and its unmodified updates just work, so ...  :yes:

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.

Also I want to see if an ARM version of Edge Browser will released for Windows RT 8.1.

(I've never really got a clear answer to this, but where is the best place to post about Surface RT tablets and Windows RT questions?)

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.
