Windows 7: February 23rd updates!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
 
 

Here I am, again. I reinstalled every update one by one and the problems seems to be with KB 978637 which is not an important update. Anyone else has the same problem?

I'm not sure this will work but try downloading the file individually and then installing it.

Here's the link.... An application runs in a Windows Vista context instead of a Windows 7 context on a computer that is running an x64 edition of Windows 7 or of Windows Server 2008 R2

KB 978637...

Quote:


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running an x64-based edition of Windows 7 or of Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • This computer has an application that specifies Windows 7 in the "Compatibility" section (<compatibility> element) of the application manifest file.

    Note For more information about the application manifest file, see the "More information" section.
  • You start the application from a 32-bit process. For example, in a file download dialog box in Internet Explorer you select Run instead of Save. This action starts the application.
In this scenario, the application runs in a Windows Vista context instead of in a Windows 7 context. Additionally, you may receive an unnecessary Program Compatibility Assistant warning.

Note To view the operating system context of a running process, use Resource Monitor and locate the Operating System Context column.

This issue occurs for both 32-bit applications and for 64-bit applications.

I show 6 ready for download including the activation one. I have not downloaded any yet. I will wait a week or two.

Installed it individually and now seems ok. Maybe there were some programs running underground which causes some conflicts. Anyway, I'm on again. Thanks a lot to everybody helped me.

I just received the notice for those 6 updates, but only on one machine so far. Not only did I not check the WAT update, I hid it.
