Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

Through AU, it doesn't list any specific number. It is known IE9 depends on it [Platform Update], however - best bet would be to fire up a clean SP2, and check what's installed after IE9.

Also AU on a clean Vista SP2 still works and everything's there as of 8am GMT+1 today when the "speedup" patches are applied, so that at least gives us time.

Hope Imacri sees your second paragraph.  As for your first paragraph: Platform Update is no mystery (and is not a Server 2008 update).  I discussed it here.

I just downloaded July rollup KB4507452, and it is quite true that it only has an sha256 digital signature - which should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following this thread. However, if Born's blog reader Gero H. (or anyone else for that matter) has been updating their Windows 6.0 on a regular basis, then why was April's servicing stack update KB4493730 skipped? We might assume that Gero H. intended to conduct a test, however the blog post states nothing of the sort. Even more questionable is this:

There are two more updates for Server 2008 SP2, this is KB4474419 in v1 and v2. KB4474419 describes “re-released to add missing MSI SHA-2 code sign support”. My test system (Vista x64 Ultimate VM) does not need this and rejects it with “does not apply to your system”. It doesn’t matter if v1 or v2 is tried.

MSFN member @artomberus reported successfully installing v2 on his Vista x86 system in a June 15 post in this thread, having earlier installed v1 only to experience issues with it. (Personally, I'm still running Windows 6.0.6002.)
