Microsoft releases June 2016 Update rollup pack for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008
Microsoft released a handful of updates for Windows 7 SP 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 this weekend as part of the June 2016 update rollup. The June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 brought a lot of improvements to both systems, but didn’t introduce any new features.
Here’s what Microsoft fixed in the June 2016 update rollup:
- KB3154228 32-bit icons can’t be loaded in OleLoadPictureEx in Windows
- KB3153727 Windows Installer with certain actions can’t be installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
- KB3161647 Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: June 2016
- KB3161897 WDS deployment fails when UEFI clients are in routed environments in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
- KB3161639 Update to add new cipher suites to Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge in Windows
- KB3163644 Microsoft Office 2010 doesn’t start when EMET is enabled in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
Despite the fact that users are slowly starting to abandon Windows 7, it is still a widely-used operating system and Microsoft is forced to support it for some more time. When we talked about the so-called Service Pack 2 for Windows 7 back in May, we mentioned that Microsoft planned to release update packs for Windows 7 every month to keep all its users on the same page.
Since then, June saw its first update rollup pack for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008. With Microsoft wanting users to move to Windows 10, we’re almost sure it won’t release any new features for Windows 7 outside of various bug fixes and system improvements.
If, by chance, you haven’t receive this update pack yet, check for updates and Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 should automatically download it.
