        I purchased a month or so ago the Windows 7 ESU feature.

        Following Susan Bradleys Feb. 11 “Patch Lady – Windows 7 ESU last minute requirment”, I went to the Microsoft catalog, selected the 64 bit version, and downloaded it.

        But nothing happened. It does not show up as being installed, and a complete search of my computer does not find a file by that name.

        What am I missing, or did I make a mistake?

        Download and install are two separate functions.

        1. Download the executable file and it should be in your Downloads folder.
        2. Install the software.
          • With your mouse, left-double-click on the download file.
          • There should be one or several inquiries as to whether you wish to install the package.

        This is the name of the file you downloaded. It’s probably in your “Downloads” folder.

        Thanks guys, but the file is NOT anywhere on my computer. I even tried downloading it again, and the Microsoft Update Catalog screenshot appears to show that it is downloaded.

        Is there an other way I can access this file?

        Why don’t you try the direct link and just paste it in browser?

        The direct link you gave me worked great. KB4538483 is now installed on one of my two Windows 7 Pro (64 bit) SP1 computers. The other installation will follow shortly.

        Thanks for your help.
