Updates for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

For Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 a rollup and a security-only update have been released. The update history for Windows 7 can be found on this Microsoft page.

KB4457144 (Monthly Rollup) for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

Update KB4457144 (Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) contains improvements and bug fixes that were already included in last month’s update. The update addresses the following:

Security updates to Windows media, Windows Shell, Windows Hyper-V, Windows kernel, Windows datacenter networking, Windows virtualization and kernel, Microsoft JET Database Engine, Windows MSXML, and Windows Server.

The update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update. It can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

Note: The KB article again contains the remark that the update causes network issues – the NIC (network interface controller) does not work anymore because of a missing .inf file from a third party manufacturer. A fix is to reinstall the NIC via the device manager.

There are reports (for instance at askwoody), that this update stalls with installation error 0x8000FFFF. See also my blog post Patchday issues with updates & WSUS (September 11, 2018).

Addendum: To install KB4457144 it is necessary that the Servicing Stack Update KB3177467 from September 2016 is installed. Otherwise the error 0x8000FFFF is reported during installation.

KB4457145 (Security Only) for Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2

Update KB4457145 (Security-only update) is available for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. The update addresses the same items as update KB445714 (see above).

The update is available via WSUS or via the Microsoft Update Catalog. There are no known issues. When installing the Security Only Update, you must also install KB4457426 for IE.
