    Yes they are compatible and install fine. I have them installed on 2 W7 Ultimate machines and on 1 Pro. No issues.

    I did not know that. Thank you for your answer.

    Do you know anything about MES? It seems that I am no longer running it? Could that be?

    That sounds good!

    WSUS Proxy is to receive the updates online, instead of installing manually from the MU Catalog.
    And yes MSE still works.

    I had also understood that, I was just not quite sure whether these updates are also compatible for Windows 7 Ultimate and Pro (and with MES).

    Read:
    NB: MSE has absolutely nothing to do with the Windows monthly rollup updates. You are only receiving definition updates for MSE through Windows Update because you have enrolled in Microsoft Update. Microsoft Update uses the Windows Update client to provide updates for other Microsoft products, such as MSE, Visual Studio, etc. Do not confuse the two.

    This is a strange thing to ask. You already know that you are receiving definition updates daily through it, so there is no question that the definitions are out of date. If you open MSE, you will see a bright green check mark and many other positive indications that indicate that MSE is working without issue. These are the same indicators that MSE is working without issue which have been present and unchanged in the application for the last 10+ years. And if this is still not good enough for you, you can very easily download a fake test "virus" from the large number of security organizations that provide these test files for free, and watch as MSE dutifully identifies it as a virus and locks it away in the quarantine.

    Questions and answers are one of the pillars of forums, but laziness is not. Please put some effort into finding the answer yourself, especially before asking superfluous questions with answers that can easily be found in just a few minutes. This thread is about Windows 7 ESU and it so frequently gets bogged down by off-topic things like this... making it harder for the rest of us to actually stay up-to-date on the ESU-related matters.

    This answer was really unnecessary. I am referring to a statement here in the forum where MSE no longer works (possibly due to the updates).
    There is no reason to directly denigrate my question.

    Thanks, I did not think to uninstall the bypass thing.
    I ran into issues but I am working on it.

    For the first time since I started to use the Bypass in February 2020 for installing Windows 7 ESU updates I had trouble installing this month’s .NET 4.8 update(KB5022509). Every time I tried I got error 1603 (0x643) when using either the dotNetFx4_ESU_Installer_u or using BypassESU-v12_u. This happened on 4 of my systems. After some debugging I discovered that the 0patch agent was to blame. I had installed 0patch in July 2022 in case I had to use their patches starting February 2023. I never had any problem with 0patch before. After uninstalling 0patch KB5022509 installed fine. I used the dotNetFx4_ESU_Installer_u and have not tried BypassESU-v12_u. I would assume the issue of not being able to install the .NET 4.8 update using the Bypass is also solved, because it threw the same error.

    Note: 0patch has to be uninstalled entirely. Stopping the service, ending the 0patchservice process or simply disabling the 0patch agent does not solve the problem, only uninstalling 0patch does.

    Long live Windows 7! :)
    Thank you abbodi and all others involved!

    WU ESU Patcher works as described
    So far, I have not installed February updates (but only Jan 2023) so it was a "clean scenario".
    I've tested version for Windows Server + Embedded and then Windows Embedded only.
    For Server version I got some old updates specific for Server edition only so I guess they should be ignored (and hidden).
    For Embedded I got what was expected for normal version of Windows 7 and successfully installed them.

    On a side note, after defragmenting the database file the file has actually become larger so I restored the previous version. :)

    Hey everyone, and thanks a lot to all contributors for their great work allowing us to keep using Windows 7 safely :)
    Just a short message to share with you the following, which puzzles me: I tried to install the 2023-02 Security Monthly Quality Rollup (KB5022872) on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with (IIRC) BypassESU v11 installed, and to my great surprise, it was successful, without any warning or error message.
    According to https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...dates-eligibility.80606/page-356#post-1778169, I would have expected BypassESU v12 to be required?
    The only other action I did prior to installing KB5022872 was to install KB5016892, which also was successful -- I think this package is only needed for Server 2008 R2, so I would have expected the install to fail, but that wasn't the case.
    Does anyone understand what could explain this behavior please? Does it mean that all future Security Monthly Quality Rollups for Server 2008 R2 could also be installed this easily?
    Thanks in advance!

    Edit: looking at BypassESU change history, if I understand well, this could be because since v8, ESU eligibility check for OS updates (and .NET 3.5.1) suppression is done in the same way; only ESU validation for .NET 4 updates bypass has changed between v8 and v12?

    Correct
    v12 contain new version of the suppression, but all 4 versions works for OS updates

    Hello everyone
    A question I have with the BypassES v9
    Do I need it disabled to enable BypassESU v12_u
    Or enable BypassESU v12_u over BypassESU v9
    Good day

    I just installed v12 over v9. It detects the older version and replaces it.
