34 Optional Windows Updates arriving on Tuesday

Recommended Posts

 

The official list of Windows Update patches was updated over the weekend to show that 34 patches rated "optional" are headed for the Automatic Update chute this Tuesday, April 21. No, it isn't officially a Patch Tuesday. It's not even a Fourth Tuesday. But at least we're getting some advanced notice from Microsoft.

Thanks for the heads up, Hazelnut.

 

(Hey, today is Earth Day. It's also Hitlers' birthday. Coincidence?)

- On the latest "Windows Update" day I was already wondering why there weren't any "optional updates". I thought MS has simplified a number of things in their WU procedure.

- I hope to see a new option for WU called "Download Updates & install when the computer shuts down" (or something along those lines) somewhere in the future. I submitted such a suggestion to MS recently.

- It's Always a mystery what all these "optional updates" do. I Always try to find to more info about them but the descriptions/explanations are so murky.

 

(If one wants to provide feedback to MS regarding Windows 7 then one can that here:

I get a 404 when I look for info on kb3022345, it says it may not be for my locale.

 

Does it do that for you when you look at the info on it in Willy2's link?

Hi hazelnut. That particular update will not install for me - it shows as "Failed". Doing a Google search on "KB3022345 Failed" it seems I'm not alone. It also appears that everyone who is having problems with this update are based in the UK. I don't get a 404 when looking at the info on Willy2's link though.

 

Were you able to install this update?

 

Is there anyone else having problems getting this particular update to install? And if you are having problems are you from the UK?

 

It seems a bit strange that an update is failing because of the location of the person trying to install the update - I've never come across this problem before.

 

All of the other updates (I was offered 21 optional updates) installed without any problems. I've now hidden the above update as it has failed to install three times.

For some odd reason (not odd really as it involves computers!) I can see that page today although ....

 

Update to enable the Diagnostics Tracking Service in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

 

...isn't the best thing to see first thing in the morning  :lol:

 

Will install on Win 8.1 later this week as I'm waiting for some more memory to arrive and will sort that first.

 

I shall look around forums etc to see if I can find out anything else about our ''UK issue'' Robbie.

 

EDIT.. this link which I guess you've already seen

- I got 3 updates for my Win 7 system.

- Why doesn't MS issue more "Cumulative Updates" ? It would reduce the amount of updates a user has to install with a fresh re-install.
