Windows 7: KB2952664 update won't install

21 Oct 2014   #11

Windows 7 64 bit

I now see that in "Uninstall a program" there are several new updates dated 17.10.14 including KB2952664. The odd thing is that none of these updates dated 17.10.14 appear in "Review your update history". How can this be? Can anyone explain what is going on here please?

KB2952664 is a compatibility update - and ONLY needed if you're planning on upgrading to Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10.

Otherwise it can be ignored and hidden.

It's possible that the other updates appear elsewhere in the History - depending on how often you reboot your machine - since the install date that shows in one screen may not be the same as that showing in another, since they may take their data from different records.

Many thanks -that's it. The "Uninstall" options of 17th October relate to some of the installed updates of 16th October. (How confusing). This includes the failed KB2952664 that I have now uninstalled and re-installed successfully.
