I'm sure everyone is eagerly waiting for them today :rolleyes:

 

Well you'll have to wait a bit longer

 

 

Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today.

After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan.

- I indeed was wondering what happened to the Update mechanism. I feared MS wanted to give priority to Win 10 systems.

- This month Windows Update recommended only one "optional" update for my Win 7 system.

I keep hoping MS is going to back pedal on the auto updates on windows 10. I cant stand the fact that it auto updates drivers. Seriously the worst idea they have ever had. Why update drivers on machines that are working fine, especially laptops that have notoriously finicky hardware once you start updating their drivers.

have you tried Control Panel, System, Advanced system settings, Hardware tab, Device Installation Settings button, and selecting No.

it does say, will 'stop manufacturers updates', not sure if MS will still sneak in their drivers though. :)

It looks like they also pulled back Redstone 2, which was suppose to be released today, apparently. http://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-not-releasing-a-windows-10-redstone-2-build-on-monday-513090.shtml

I am a maintainer for Winapp2. I also have a open-source group on Steam.

- When I look at the "Optional" updates then it suggests that people with a Win 7 system will only have 1 update in the next "Windows Update tuesday" and that update is offered twice. Odd, very odd.
