Windows 7: New optional update KB3035583 available

04 Apr 2015   #21

Win7 Ultimate x64

I also do get this update today, but it is marked as an important update now. Is it worth installing? Was it upgraded from optional to important?

I was offered it optionally it in Win 8.1 and I installed it on April 1, but no sign yet in either of my Win 7 SP1's.

It is the update that enables Windows Update to offer Windows 10, when the time comes.

Win 7 Ult SP1/Win 10 Pro (all x64)

Well so much for the stupid Windows Search in Win 7...not nearly as functional as in Vista or even XP for that matter.
After delving through all my updates, I found that yes indeed, my Win 7 SP1's both received it on March 28. Around the same time as the GWX folder was created in Windows\System 32, which looks to be an intro to Win 10 folder as I see the Win 10 logo on at least 2 of them.
Mind you some dates are fixed in stone because I just upgraded my main system from Vista SP2 to 7 SP1 and Windows isn't so hot on dates for folder creation, changes etc. etc.
Whomever at MS thought of blank windows as a good emblem for a system, really needs a lesson on aesthetics.

That headline is misleading, all it does it exactly what MS have done in the past to enable, for instance, Service Packs to be offered, all this does is enable Windows Update to offer Windows 10 when the time comes, you can always say no if you'd prefer to hang on to what you've got.

From what I can tell it looks like a separate program to be used to upgrade to Windows 10. It runs the GWX program on my system at every boot and has already downloaded some updated config files (config.xml is now ver 3) to be used in its process. Its not fully functional yet and gets some Event Errors. Reading the config.xml (use edit) is interesting in what it is doing in each phase. I am going to let it run and see what it does as we get closer to GA.

Windows 10 to arrive July 29 Internet Explorer is not part of the Release. (Replaced by "Edge").
Interestingly this just appeared on my desktop..and anyone who is up to date with Windows Update will now see the Windows 10 logo in their taskbar, and clicking it results in the attached (click to enlarge)
(Only applies to those with fully updated Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8 and 8.1)
