    Lightbulb New KB: Convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1.

    This appears to be close to an unofficial SP2, as it: "... contains all the security and non-security fixes released since the release of Windows 7 SP1 that are suitable for general distribution, up through April 2016.".

    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/...aspx?q=3125574 (you may need to use IE for this).

    See further details here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ows-7-and-8-1/ and also here: http://www.zdnet.com/article/microso...for-windows-7/

    Even more information from the Premier Field Engineering blog - Windows 7 SP1 and Server 2008 R2 SP1 cumulative roll-up now available at a download location near you! (KB3125574)

    EDIT: direct download links for x86 (http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...b0a74b2cbd.msu) and x64 (http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/...1264cd93b9.msu). From another Penton site post.

    The downloaded KBs equate to standalone installers, they can be used to update multiple machines, provided any pre-requisites (like SP1 and the April 2015 Servicing Stack for W7) have been installed.

    From the MSDN article:

    "For those who aren’t familiar with the Microsoft Update Catalog website, note that it still requires using Internet Explorer at this point because of an ActiveX control used. Later this summer, we will be updating the site to eliminate the ActiveX control in order to support other browsers."

    Hmm, when I go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website and Add the update I want (or even the ones I don't), the 'Next' button remains inactive. Using IE 11. Since I get prompts from other sites wanting to run ActiveX, that doesn't seem to be the issue, though I get no such prompt on the Microsoft Update Catalog website...

    Well, you got much further than I did, I'll need to recheck my settings before I try again.

    Early indications from the troops on the front line suggest that it's good news on the GWX front though.

    Progress - sort of: I clicked on the 'View basket' button, which opens up another view, with a Download button. Clicked on that to be presented with a window inviting me to choose a destination folder. Clicked on 'Browse' and copped a UAC prompt no less! Since when does merely browsing require Admin approval??? Anyway, approved the access and - nothing. Clicking again on 'Browse' has no effect.

    After confirming the UAC dialog, I was presented with the usual dialog for selecting a folder. Here's the details about the Update Catalog ActiveX control on my system.

    I had to access the Rollup by using the Search function (http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/...aspx?q=3125574), adding the required Update(s), viewing the Basket then browsing for a local folder in the Basket popup window.

    I've never had any trouble D/L'ing from the MS catalog site but this is the first time that I have gotten a UAC before the D/L.

    I made folders for the x86 and also the x64 versions before going there so that I can burn them to Disc since they are approx. 800 MB combined. All went smooth for D/L'ing and they D/L'ed pretty darn fast for my connection speed.
