fortunately, the KB4493132 EOL notification update is not being offered nor does it apply to the Professional, Enterprise and Embedded editions of Windows 7.


I recently ran a Windows Update search on a computer running Win7 Pro and KB4493132 does not show up (ah yes! )

I believe the notifications start April 18, 2019...


These notifications will start to show on April 18th 2019 and will state the following message and contain a Learn More link to a Windows 7 End of Life Information article. The notification also include a checkbox that allows you configure the program to not show you the alert again in the future, which is described further later in the article.

but they only apply to the home and ultimate editions of Windows 7

Microsoft has updated support KB article 4493132 on Thursday 4/4 with this notice:

Quote:
Note for organizations


This update is not applicable for devices in managed organizations. More specifically, this update will not install on devices running Professional and Enterprise editions of Windows 7 as well as Windows Server products. We recognize that organizations typically have an IT Pro managing system configuration and Windows 10 deployments. It is important for organizations to shift to Windows 10 ahead of January 2020 – organizations can go here to learn more.

so those using Professional or Enterprise edition of Windows 7 will not be receiving any EOL notifications nor the KB4493132 update itself

Is there a software program out there that can determine if your PC can run Win10? MS offered a scanner to do that with earlier updates, but I cannot find anything current that will scan a machine and make a Win7 compatabilty determination.

nope. that will only come from MS alone.

if you're using name brand PCs like ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, etc., check with their support sites for PCs that have been tested for Win10 compatibility as they have a list of machines that are eligible for upgrading from w7/8.1 to 10.

meanwhile, I'll hide the EOL notices on my other win7 machines that use either home premium or ultimate

Thanks...checked that Dell website with service tags. I have the Inspiron 3847 and the Inspiron 620. Seems that the 3847 is Win10 compatable, but the 620 is not.
