Microsoft rolls out “convenience rollup” updates for Windows 7 PC
If you are still running Windows 7 on your PC, Microsoft has just rolled out a “convenience rollup” update collection.The new convenience rollup for Windows 7 SP1 will allow users to apply a collection of patches and security fixes that Microsoft has labeled as “recommended” through a straightforward process requiring a single reboot. Microsoft also hopes that this convenience rollup will help organizations deal with the process of regularly updating their Windows 7 machines to keep up with the latest updates.
Please find the full technical details below:
This convenience rollup package contains all the security and non-security fixes released since the release of Windows 7 SP1 that are suitable for general distribution, up through April 2016. Install this one update, and then you only need new updates released after April 2016.
And since this update can be injected into Windows 7 SP1 media, it’s fully supported to mount a Windows 7 SP1 image (WIM file), then inject this update into it.
This convenience update is completely optional; it doesn’t have to be installed and won’t even be offered via Windows Update – you can choose whether or not you want to use it.
