Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

Recommended Posts

I meant that in general I probably should put update catalog links alongside the KB numbers of updates that have been released, so that it'd be a bit easier for people, who read these posts, to find these updates, or to at least not make them copy & paste every update number into MS catalog, sometimes it's really painful. I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear the first time, sometimes it's hard to express what you mean in a language that's not your native one. (and I hope you get what I meant now lol, if still not... well, maybe I need more sleep, can't get enough of it lately).

Tamris:  Dude ... Lady? ... Do not express your qualms about being understood in a language that's not your native tongue.  YOU'RE DOING FINE.  

First of all,  we're dealing with a shared interest --- keeping Vista going on our PCs -- so we can all grasp the intent of someone's post here even if the words and syntax  being used are not the best of formal English.  Secondly, if you actually lived in an English speaking environment, surrounded by people who speak that language and none other, you'd quickly notice that most "native speakers" are not orators or authors.  They wave their hands about, they say some words loudly and let others fade into silence, they throw meaningless phrases like "you know" and "I guess" and  "you all" and "What about her emails" into conversations to fill up gaps, they mispronounce words that most high school graduates should be familiar with, their spoken vocabulary is small.   Most English speakers are just ordinary folks, not expecting to do much with their use of the language, and -- surprise! -- not doing much with it either.    Third. you're doing fine and you're surrounded by people doing fine.   Nobody in this discussion thread or, as far as I've noticed, in any of the MSFN discussions I've followed, has used English here in any way whatsoever that would be noticed by ordinary Americans, Canadians, Britons, etc.   YOU ARE ALL DOING FINE.

Really, the only person here who needs feel some embarrassment about his impoverished language skills is me.  I might get along talking to a five year old German kid or a two year old French infant, but we'd be limited to talk about liking sauerkraut and potatoes and taking naps rather than running  personal computers.   Let me say it again. YOU ARE ALL DOING FINE.

This must be the first time since Vista's EOL that I've seen an update for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. Don't forget that even if you have .NET 3.5 installed every .NET 2.0 update still applies!

Well, it's that time of the month again, and only a year away from Vista's true EoL (or EoS, as @dencorso has said about XP, though not sure if it applies to Vista as well)...
And as usual, I recommend waiting at least a week before any of these, because we never know, if Microsoft won't pull any of these updates and upload it (or even more than one of them) again in a couple days. So, without further ado, let's finally get to what you all have come here for:

KB4480968 - Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480957 - Security Only Quality Update for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480965 - Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 9 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4481486 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit and 64-bit update catalog link

KB4480062 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480059 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480055 - Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4481487 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 4.5.2, 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit and 64-bit MS update catalog link

KB4480084 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 for Windows Server 2008 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480076 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

KB4480072 - Security Only Update for .NET Framework 4.6/4.6.1 for Windows Server 2008 SP2 - 32-bit | 64-bit

Extra/optional update:

KB4487354 - Update for Windows Server 2008 SP2 for x84/x64 based Systems - 32-bit | 64-bit

I think that's all for this month (for now at least), except 2 updates for Itanium based systems only, but I don't think it's necessary to post them here. I also hope you all will like this new way of posting lists of updates which are available for Vista, and which I will try to use from now on. :)

I also apologize for no direct links to bigger .net rollups but direct downloads of those are sadly unavailable.

Added KB4487354, thanks to @mike_shupp for finding it.

Wa-hoo!  I'm impressed, that looks a lot more professional than what I've been throwing up.  So I'll sit on my hands once more, thank you!

And to backup your cautionary note, it seems Microsoft has already pulled 4 updates for MS Office 2010 this month. and found an error in the Win 7/ Server 2008 R2 monthly security rollup package less than a day after posting.  Sad to admit, but 2019 looks unlikely to be The Year Things Went Perfectly For Microsoft.   So sorry, people in Redmond.

Okay, one more update as of mid-month.  KB4487354, a hotfix for those who have already updated with KB4480968 or KB4480957.  Quoting Microsoft:  "This update resolves the issue where local users who are part of the local “Administrators“ group may not be able to remotely access shares on Windows Server 2008 SP2 machines after installing the January 8th, 2019 security updates. This does not affect domain accounts in the local "Administrators" group."     There is a similarly numbered patch at the MS update Catalog for people running Windows 7.

I.e.,  if you're running Vista and discover you can't download files from another PC running Vista, or can't upload files, this patch may fix things.  Or it may not not.  Or maybe just as well, you might uninstall  KB4480968 or KB4480957.   Or maybe wait to see if the fix is added to next months Security And Quality Rollup.   Of course this problem isn't really likely to happen, but ...  We're not dealing with certainties here, but if you've just got to have EVERYTHING on your Vista machine as soon as possible, you'll want this patch.  Otherwise ... I'd classify it as an "extra."

Not my call actually.  This is where I take a step back and give my best salute to GreenHillManiac.   I'll trust his judgement.

Thank you for letting us know. :)Should I add it to my previous post? :angel

Don't know why I asked, added direct download links to my previous post.

Well .... the need for this patch is a bit unclear, let's say.  As originally presented, this was a fix for a problem created by KB4480970, the January SMQ Rollup for Windows 7, namely that users accessing other PCs  by way of the SMBv2 protocol might see difficulties.  (Vista and Win 7 users, in other words.  Windows 8 and 10 users would use SMBv3 by default, and not have problems).  The suggestion of the knowledgeable folks at www.AskWoody.Com was to bring up the CMD line interface, enter "reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f", then exit and reboot the system.   A one line registry fix.

But some of us have qualms about fiddling with the registry, even with things that look simple and straightforward.  (That includes me actually, so I'm not being particularly snide.  I've never seen a reasonable account of how the Windows registry is set up.  It's obscure and mysterious, and I've come to think Microsoft wants this to be the case.)   Anyhow, KB4487345 is a MS hotfix that implements that registry change.    It takes a 30 megabyte program file to add one line, with under a hundred characters, to the  registry, and that's all it does.  Okay.  This tells us something about modern programming skills I guess, or maybe something about the efficiency of modern compilers.   Or something --- a programmer in the 1960's-1970's era would be on the floor moaning at that 30 MB monstrosity, which could have been coded in  about 150 characters in machine language.  (I'm an old-fashioned guy, if you haven't figured this out yet.) 

Anyhow.  This seems to be a rather low priority fix, since MS isn't shoving it off onto everyone as a routine update, but just keeping it as an optional thing at the Microsoft Update Catalog.   The implication is that most of us will get by happily without the fix. thus my suggestion that it be treated as an "Extra."  But I don't make the rules here -- I'm a scout., a PFC at best.   GreenHillManiac set up the database, so he's the officer in charge.

And that's a good suggestion actually, added an "extra" section to my update list.

We have two more Win Server 2008 updates this week at the Microsoft Update Catalog:

     KB4486459 qualifies as an EXTRA -- it brings the latest Chilean time zone changes to your system

     KB4490514 provides capabilities that I would have thought had been in last week's updates -- there's a fix to re-enable databases using Access 95, plus a fix for virtual machines which fail to restart properly after a save operation (I don't know if this for VMs in general or just for those employing Virtual PC 2004 and VPC 2007; I suspect it's the latter case).

    Also, the curious can find previews of next month's NET (KB4486546 and KB4487259) and Monthly Quality (KB4487022)  Rollups.

 

And now back to sleep for a couple of weeks.    Zzzzzzzz .....

Ok, I've had time to update the repository with the January and February updates. Just in time, before Microsoft unleash the March ones.

  • Replaced Monthly Rollup with the new KB4487023 (located on the root directory of the repository)
  • Added Security Only Updates, KB4480957 and KB4487019 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
  • Replaced Internet Explorer Cumulative Update with KB4486474 (located in the folder "/Security Only (Post August 2018)")
  • Replaced .NET Framework Security and Quality with:
    -KB4483457 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security and Quality Rollup")
    -KB4483455 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security and Quality Rollup")
    -KB4483451 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security and Quality Rollup")
  • Added .NET Security Only Updates with:
    -KB4480084 and KB4483482 for .NET 2.0 SP2 (located in "/NET 2.0 SP2/Security Only")
    -KB4480076 and KB4483474 for .NET 4.5.2 (located in "/NET 4.5.2/Security Only")
    -KB4480072 and KB4483470 for .NET 4.6-4.6.1 (located in "/NET 4.6-4.6.1/Security Only")
  • Added Extra updates KB4486459, KB4487354 and KB4490514 (located in "/Extras") with an updated readme file

Funny enough, the timezone update KB4486459 does not replace the previous KB4468323. Also worth noting that KB4487354 in the extras folder is not needed if you install the Monthly Rollups.
That is all for now :)

https://mega.nz/#F!txxRyLzC!1vBMGzMHiL864f3bl1Rj1w

EDIT: I've rearranged the repository for easier navigation. Now the pre-Monthly Rollup Security Updates are in a folder named "Security Updates (May 2017-August 2018)"
