Windows 7: Question about the SHA2 patches

Question about the SHA2 patches

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone had any issues installing KB4474419 and KB4490628? I'm on Windows 7 SP1 64bit and wanna know if there is any hidden nonsense or the like in the patches and have they installed correctly on other people's 64bit systems without issue.

Thank you very much

hi only advice I will give is make a restore point then download and install the update if problems go back to the restore point you made. me personally never had a problem installing any updates.

Did you manage to download and install the updates OK?

only this person was unable to install one of the SHA-2 updates for Windows 7 and getting errors for it.

per MS support KB article 4472027 - those two updates are required before installing new Win7 updates from August 2019 onward.
