It must be challenging for Microsoft to create ever again mistakes havin their windows 7 professional push, but it keeps finding new ways. After nagging everyone incessantly about upgrading, updating computers without asking, and making Windows 10 patches mandatory, Microsoft has started disallowing Windows 7 and 8.1 updates on machines running today's hardware. One developer has experienced enough, it really is releasing a patch to support users browse through this artificial blockade.
The unofficial patch out of a developer calling himself 'Zeffy' on GitHub targets those running very new CPUs on older versions of Windows. Windows 7 and 8 will always be supported with updates, but Microsoft has begun blocking non-security updates for systems running Intel 7th-Generation Kaby Lake processors, AMD "Bristol Ridge" Rizen chips, or maybe the Qualcomm 8996 (Snapdragon 820 and 821) SoC.
If you attempt in order to the newest April patches for Windows 7 or 8.1 on scalping systems, it will now fail with error code 8024003. One solution Microsoft offers towards the error should be to upgrade to windows 7 home premium. In reality, there would not look like they're any legitimate reason to dam these updates. Microsoft just really, is wanting you to employ Windows 10.
The Zeffy patch goes searching for a change Microsoft introduced in March that identifies the system's CPU. Given that the changelog explained in those days, the patch "Enabled detection of processor generation and hardware support when PC tries to scan or download updates through Windows Update." Zeffy is amazingly sure his dislike for Windows 10 when he refers to this as "essentially a large middle finger to any person who dare not 'upgrade' in to the steaming pile of garbage referred to as Windows 10."
Is it best to install Zeffy's fix, two functions used in wuaueng.dll update code can be disabled. It really is gets into something, IsCPUSupported(void) and IsDeviceServiceable(void), that handle blocking the update. This patch reportedly will the job, so its possible to install the previously blocked non-security updates on Windows 7 and 8.1 on affected systems. However, the Zeffy patch will have to be reapplied every occasion wuaueng.dll is updated by Microsoft. It's also possible another update attempt to stop this workaround. Then, maybe someone will release another custom patch, buy office 2010 will block that particular one, then the event starts all-around.
The patch download is one megabyte and installs in one step. The original source code prevails, that makes it unlikely Zeffy can be anything shady. That said, working with a third-party tool to alter Windows system files is not totally without risk.
