I believe NoN tried to install it without an ESU licence and it failed, as expected. Those updates will refuse to install if you don't have an ESU licenced PC.

For my own curiosity, I've already tried to install it in a VM to see what happens, and it won't work.

did you purchase a valid ESU license (separate from a Win7 license) and activate it?
AND did you manually download & install the KB4538483 update? (one of the Pre-requisite updates)

if all these conditions are not met, KB4537820 will fail to install 100% successfully

I just noticed the "tip" at the start of this thread now.
Just wondering if that's something that can be discussed on here now? As one of my posts about it appears to have been removed. So, are we allowed to talk about it, or.... ?

Have no ESU licence, nor any installed workaround.


Installed KB4537829 to test. But first, of course, I made a Restore Point just prior to testing.


It installed perfectly and came up in the Control Panel list of installed updates. BUT: the "uninstall" option was missing. Just not there.


So I activated the Restore Point, which removed it. If MS doesn't want you to uninstall an update (after Win7 EOL) then I most certainly will remove it.

Tested either and installed fine..in Programs & Features =>Installed Packages, it shows this Kb4537829 Servicing Stack Update:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...er-2008-r2-sp1 , but it is normal that there's no uninstaller for such package, it replaces Kb4536952.
