Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

Recommended Posts


Hi Jody and Jaguarek62. The two Vista-related repositories are still up. The link in this thread’s original post is indeed not working, but the link in this greenhillmaniac post IS working, so perhaps Jody should edit the OP. But those are the Server 2012 updates since Windows 8’s EOL that are the topic of this thread, which isn’t exactly what bruno16757 asked about. Does Windows Update no longer work for fresh installs of Windows 8.0 now? Of course there is no “to now” for 8.0 updates (only 8.1 being supported), which is why Jody started this thread years ago!

Edit: Looks like greenhillmaniac first mentioned “new link” August 22, 2016, so give him a break. :blink:

Hey relax a little.  I'm not here everyday.  I was just hoping @greenhillmaniac was OK.  I just wondered what happened.  So I'm not trying to get "worked up"

I'll edit the first post

No offense intended Jody. It’s good to have a working link the first post.

anyone got a update up  too march 2021 for windows 8.0 ???

No, because support for 8.0 ended in January 2016. But if you have 8.0 x64, then the updates discussed in this thread can be installed.

As of July 2021, all of the new security only updates for Server 2012 (including KB5004294 and KB5004960) now will remove the Adobe Flash Component from Windows 8.

I enjoy playing some locally run flash games like YetiSports, so this is a deal breaker for me.  I'll keep you posted on my next course of action.

I am considering installing an older Adobe-supplied ActiveX Flash plugin - one that isn't time-bombed that is.  Then I can install the latest update that removes the integrated Flash.

Has anyone tried this?

Just bumping this thread because I wondered one of two things, regarding the latest Windows update:

  • has anyone installed it, yet been able to get third party ActiveX Flash installations to work?  I only want to run locally installed Flash content, outside of a browser.
  • is it yet known whether or not Flash removal will be part of the August security-only updates?

I’m holding off updating until I have a sure answer.

Wow!  There's NOBODY that can answer this question?  I'm not meaning to sound impatient - I promise.  I'm just astonished that there are no takers.

Hi Jody. Running Windows 8 must get lonely. I’m content to say goodbye to Flash Player myself, but you might be interested in something that Mathwiz posted last night in the main thread on this subject:

Thank you - I'll check it out.

Well this particular issue would affect Windows 10 too.
