Enterprise hotfix for Windows 7 SP1 and 2008 R2 SP1

Enterprise hotfix for Windows 7 SP1 and 2008 R2 SP1

lately I have noticed that some of my customers is unaware of the hotfix rollup Microsoft has released for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 2008 R2 SP1.

The hotfix includes many of the fixes needed in an enterprise environment, so it might be a good idea to take a closer look on the rollup package.

Note that the package must be downloaded from Microsoft Update Catalog:

But as we all know nothing is as good ad it looks, apparently there are issues with the rollup package that need further investigation, so maybe it is good that the rollup package is not that commonly known or used Smiley
