you're welcome


I've only installed KB4539601 manually on one Win7 computer. I have not installed it yet on my bro's laptop running Win7 Home premium though WU is recently offering KB4539601 as an Optional update on his Win7 laptop.

I have not installed these Previews in the past because I understood they were updates "floated" by MS and would shortly become "official" and released again in a final version. But now I see this Optional update is still sitting alone in WU after two months.

Was my understanding incorrect? Should I install this "Preview" because no Final version is forthcoming?
