    February 9, 2021 - KB4601363 (Security-only update)

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Embedded Standard 7 ESU, Windows Embedded POSReady 7, Windows Thin PC

    IMPORTANT Verify that you have installed the required updates listed in the How to get this update section before installing this update.

    Customers who have purchased the Extended Security Update (ESU) for on-premises versions of this OS must follow the procedures in KB4522133 to continue receiving security updates after extended support ends on January 14, 2020. For more information about ESU and which editions are supported, see KB4497181.

    Because ESU is available as a separate SKU for each of the years in which they are offered (2020, 2021, and 2022)—and because ESU can only be purchased in specific 12-month periods—you must purchase the second year of ESU coverage separately and activate a new key on each applicable device for your devices to continue receiving security updates in 2021.

    If your organization did not purchase the first year of ESU coverage, you must purchase both Year 1 and Year 2 ESU for your applicable Windows 7 or Windows Server devices before you install and activate the Year 2 MAK keys to receive updates. The steps to install, activate, and deploy ESUs are the same for first and second year coverage. For more information, see Obtaining Extended Security Updates for eligible Windows devices for the Volume Licensing process and Purchasing Windows 7 ESUs as a Cloud Solution Provider for the CSP process. For embedded devices, contact your original equipment manufacturer (OEM).

    For more information, see the ESU Year 2 blog.

    For information about the various types of Windows updates, such as critical, security, driver, service packs, and so on, please see the following article. To view other notes and messages, see the Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 update history home page.

    Prerequisite

    You must install the updates listed below and restart your device before installing the latest Rollup. Installing these updates improves the reliability of the update process and mitigates potential issues while installing the Rollup and applying Microsoft security fixes.

    1. The March 12, 2019 servicing stack update (SSU) (KB4490628). To get the standalone package for this SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog. This update is required to install updates that are only SHA-2 signed.
    2. The latest SHA-2 update (KB4474419) released September 10, 2019. If you are using Windows Update, the latest SHA-2 update will be offered to you automatically. This update is required to install updates that are only SHA-2 signed. For more information on SHA-2 updates, see 2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support requirement for Windows and WSUS.
    3. For Windows Thin PC, you must have the August 11, 2020 SSU (KB4570673) or a later SSU installed to make sure you continue to get the extended security updates starting with the October 13, 2020 updates.
    4. To get this security update, you must reinstall the "Extended Security Updates (ESU) Licensing Preparation Package" (KB4538483) or the "Update for the Extended Security Updates (ESU) Licensing Preparation Package" (KB4575903) even if you previously installed the ESU key. The ESU licensing preparation package will be offered to you from WSUS. To get the standalone package for ESU licensing preparation package, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    After installing the items above, Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest SSU (KB4592510). If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU will be offered to you automatically if you are an ESU customer. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog. For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions.

    REMINDER If you are using Security-only updates, you will also need to install all previous Security-only updates and the latest cumulative update for Internet Explorer (KB4586768).
