  • Patch Lady – yes the Windows 7 ESU keys work on Ultimate

    Posted on December 17th, 2019 at 10:49 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    See that activation on the top?  That’s a $61 (US) first year fee for Windows 7 Extended Security Updates that is activated on a Windows 7 Ultimate machine.

    So to those wanting to know the question… “Does the Win7 ESU keys work on Ultimate?”  Yes they do.

    One thing to keep in mind — if you are a security only patcher, you will need to flip over to the update rollup model to get this key on your machine.  There are requirements mandated.  Stay tuned as a step by step article will be out soon.

    But bottom line… Windows 7 Ultimates can continue to be patched in 2020.
