  • Patch Lady – 7 Metadata problems

    Posted on October 15th, 2018 at 12:40 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Patch Lady here – I patch over the weekend at my firm and normally the 7’s install their patches and go along their merry way.  But not this weekend.

    I came in this morning and none of my 7’s had installed KB3177467, nor have their received their October security update because the October security update depends on the installation of KB3177467.

    Mind you I installed KB3177467 BACK IN NOVEMBER OF 2016.  So it’s already ON my machines.

    Bottom line metadata and patch dependency is totally screwed up on Windows 7 platform and because of that the October security updates detection are screwed up.
