Has Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 7 that lack SP1 ?

Recommended Posts

I was intrigued to see that Microsoft now update third party products.

That deals with an issue for Windows 8.1

 

They list all the systems which are NOT affected by the issue,

ranging from

Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2

through to

Windows Server 2012 R2 (Server Core installation).

 

I notice that somewhere in the middle of the "unaffected list) they show

Windows 7 for 32-bit Systems Service Pack 1

Windows 7 for x64-based Systems Service Pack 1

but Windows 7 without SP1 is a "no show".

 

I am just wondering how long after the release of a service pack do they forsake products without that Service Pack.

SP1 came out really quickly, a matter of months from memory.

I can't recall seeing a Win7 PC that hasn't got SP1 for many years.

 

There is a download link for Win7 SP1 if you need it Alan.

Big difference is if it were already included in the OS during installation of the OS. I remember the Win98 era that the Active X version of Flash Player was included, and when visiting Windows Updates it would offer to update it.

Thanks, but SP! was installed before I started using Windows 7 in anger :wacko:
