Windows 7: Media Center, gaming fixes arrive for Windows 7.

25 Feb 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Media Center, gaming fixes arrive for Windows 7.

Microsoft has released a slew of nonsecurity updates on Windows Update and the Microsoft Download Center, the majority of which are for the latest versions of the client and server operating systems.

The first release is for a game, application, or firmware that is either installed incorrectly, causes system instability, or has primary functions that do not work correctly. The update will either prevent incompatible software from running (hard block with third-party manufacturer consent), notify the user that incompatible software is starting to run (soft block), or improve the software's functionality (update). This month's update has changes for 209 applications on Vista/Server 2008 plus 329 applications on 7/Server 2008 R2. Here are the direct links: Windows Vista 32-bit (2.8MB), Windows Vista 64-bit (3.3MB), Windows 7 32-bit (1.8MB), and Windows 7 64-bit (2.0MB). Window Server 2008 and Itanium versions are also available.

The next issue occurs when 32-bit applications on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 run in a Windows Vista context and prompt the user with an unnecessary Program Compatibility Assistant warning. You can grab it for Windows 7 64-bit (418KB), Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit (418KB), and Windows Server 2008 R2 Itanium (2.0MB).
