Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

Recommended Posts

Damn it - I was trying his steps right now.  And yes it still fails.  The recommended IE updates was installed eons ago, and I restored IE 10.  No friggin go at all.  Crap!

fwaa haa haa haa :buehehe:

oh well no IE11 on Win8.0 clients; bummer Jody (you can go back in remove IE10 if you like)

looks like the KB4492872 IE11 packs do check the InstallType and EditionID and only install on Server 2012 & Win8 Embedded

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).

 

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.

 

you're right about saying that looks can be deceiving, but for a different reason, greenhillmaniac.

I did install the KB4054542 (.NET 4.7.2) update on my Win8.0 Pro x64 machine several days ago.  however the installation went fairly quickly without error BUT I had to really check the C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\ and C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\ folders to see if a bunch of .NET DLL files such as the System.dll, System.Core.dll, System.Data.dll etc. and the corresponding .NET EXE files like MSBuild.exemscorsvw.exengen.exengentask.exe, etc. were updated to the NET 4.7.2 versions (v4.7.3081.0) [right-click on any of those DLL or EXE files, choose Properties and click on the Details tab to check the version number].  they were not updated, even though I have KB4054542 listed in the Installed Updates section of the Programs and Features Control panel.  so the install of KB4054542 was really "partial" on Win8.0 clients

edit 4/27: anyways I have recently removed KB4054542 and have gone back to installing .NET Framework 4.6.2 (KB3151804) on my Win8.0 Pro machine as I am content in having .NET 4.6.2 & not anything higher

KB4499171 May 2019 Rollup & KB4499158 May 2019 security-only updates available May 14.

---

aww gosh darn it! :realmad:

After installing KB3191565 (WMF 5.1) using the batch file, rebooted then uninstalled the April 2019 rollup (KB4493451) and the existing Realtek HD audio driver and rebooted, my aunt's Win8.0 pro PC ended up going into a Win8 "Automatic Repair" loop; guess I'm gonna have to either do a "refresh PC" repair using the Win8 DVD or do an overwrite install of Win8.0 from the DVD (almost a "clean" install), either way I'll have to spend a few days fixing the mess I created (which kinda sucks) - perhaps after re-installing Win8.0 from scratch I'll leave out WMF 5.1 since I didn't really need it anyway

@erpdude8 Ouch!  Sorry that happened to you.  As of right now, I'm only installing the IE10 and Flash updates.  My security-only updates stop at November 2017, but that will change at the end of the year.  I figure when I update to the next Firefox ESR (or whichever browser I move to), I will also install all of the security-only updates since then (except for the Spectre and Meltdown ones from a year ago).

Well, Windows 8.0 is different from 8.1 in some things. Better DWM performance (despite it using a lot of RAM at times, can even reach 160 MB), more friendly in mods (although not enough like 7). It also doesn't get the GWX updates like 8.1 does, as far as I know. Despite so, I'd rather use Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 in this case, since 8's UI is really crap  Xender Discord Omegle (don't get me wrong, still better than 10's), it can get even heavier than good old Vista in memory use, and mods are still hit or miss. I got Vista installed in all of my computers anyway, now to get Server 2008 fixed, as it boots very slow for some reason, compared to the client counterpart...

 

As for MS's support, I doubt you get anything real good at the moment in Vista/7, they're trying to get every 7/8.1 user to upgrade to 10, in every way, be it very catchy or spastic. 7/8.1 Enterprise or their server counterparts at least don't get affected by those, so I'm better off with either one of those. Also, because MS's support for 7 is for 4 years, doesn't mean the OS will die immediately in January 2020. Even XP has still support from some companies, Nvidia with their GTX cards as a great example of this. Don't expect 7 to die very soon, it'll most likely stay alive by most companies for at least a year after its MS support ends.

 

 

As for mods, I have made several mods to 7 too, including the navigation pane text color and theme color bitmaps to look like Vista's (well, some of them are non-existent in Vista, but I made my own instead, based on its own bitmaps). I have uploaded a screenshot and links to the mods in here (on my DeviantArt page): http://fav.me/d9tg0pu

I changed to a custom Vista theme for Windows 8, which works perfect. For all of those bells and whistles of the Aero theme, you can just go to the advanced system settings and change performance settings in there. Of course, for features like Media Player

Could you upload that theme?

Ok, just got back home, time to update the repository.

This is an overhaul to the repository, as it no longer contains superseeded updates, has Internet Explorer 10, Flash Player and Kernel Mode Driver updates on the root directory, since those are updated every month and replace the previous versions, and (most importantly) X86 UPDATES FOR YOUR COMPUTING NEEDS! These come from Windows 8 Embedded Standard and work on Windows 8.0 (tested on my 12 inch laptop with a measly Intel Celeron Dual Core at 1.2 Ghz, from 2009).

One thing to keep note of is that security updates for Media Center will not be available for Windows 8.0, since the only NT 6.2 supported OSes, Server 2012 and 8 Embedded Standard, don't have this feature. Regardless, these updates only fix vulnerabilities when oppening .mcl files, so as long as you don't open those kind of files, you shouldn't worry too much :cool:

Here's the new link: https://mega.nz/#F!ExhDEbDA!pUhzXKVp5-hgzvylW_btfQ

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

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

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?

I had installed .Net 4.7, but it caused other issues (Programs crashing with CLR20r3), so I reinstalled Windows 8

I'll just stick with .Net 4.5

Edit: The error was "The update is not applicable to your computer"
