Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

Recommended Posts

If someone identifies which files and registry entries compose the Spectre & Meltdown mitigation, a stand-alone installable package could be created that allowed one to install the latest cumulative updates, then forcefully (re)install the pre-mitigation files and regs only. But that's a time consuming task I'd envisaged as already done for 7SP1 and 8.1 by now, and, yet, I've had no indication anything like that has ever been done. I confess I'm surprised, considering how fast a patch to revert the artificial restrictions to Coffe-Lake and the like was released and keeps available.

for this month for my relative's old Win8.0 32bit/x86 computer (don't ask why I'm using a 32bit version of Win8 - I have an old Intel D101GGC board on that PC using an Intel Pentium D cpu with 2gigs of RAM), I'll apply the KB4462929 monthly rollup (I'm more bold & daring than you Jody since I'm not afraid to install any recent monthly rollups) as well as the newest flash update and will skip the .NET 4.6.2 security updates for October

And if you look at this thread, it appears that the KB4462926 rollup for Windows 8.1 contains telemetry.  I can't be sure if it's in the Server 2012 rollup.  Mind you, I'd only be installing Security-Only updates

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 :)

Since there've been little more than crickets chirping in this thread.  I have the updates.  I can post what I downloaded if need be.  :)

Here's some good news for Windows 8.0, if you use Internet Explorer, you may be able to get Internet Explorer 11 since Microsoft is finally making it available for Windows Server 2012 (R1 version): https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-makes-final-push-to-rid-world-of-internet-explorer-10/

So, even though it is for Windows Server 2012 NT 6.2 based OS, it shouldn't be too much to work around and make it work on Windows 8.0

Just thought that would be helpful if using Internet Explorer.

Yeah there was a post on Ghacks about this, and another thread on here in the Server 2012 section.  Thanks @ComputerNerd

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.
