  • Patch Lady – KB4538483 revised

    Posted on May 10th, 2020 at 16:23 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    KB4538483 for Windows 7 was updated on May 6th.  For my machine behind WSUS it automatically got it on May 9th (I have security approvals set to install updates on Saturdays.)

    My understanding is this fixes up some issues with the various licensed versions of Win7 ESUs.

    …but…. I’m not sure if it will impact the script.  Based on folks posting in the forums I don’t think it does.

    Per Abbodii “this is mostly to fix ESU keys activation issues listed in this article:

    Remember with these Windows 7’s there are servicing stack update patches that need to be installed EVERY month otherwise you won’t see the NEXT month’s updates.  So make sure you have KB4550738 

    This update gets offered up after the main April updates and you’ll need to have it installed otherwise you won’t see May’s updates.
