    Your MDL Novice rating is appropriate. You need to visit this forum more often to stay up to date on ESU news & facts for Win 7.

    Visit comment #7791 Page 390 of this forum & you will find a link provided by @foo4mdl. The page explains why we have hope until Jan 2026.
    Yes, the dates you question are real & accurate. The Premium Assurance program is a very happy surprise for many of us. Good hunting... ;>)

    That's great news truthfully hopefully Microsoft is seriously giving support till 2026. I mean I don't think they would lie about that or go back on saying they would give updates till 2026 & just not do it but then this is Microsoft your talking about sadly.

    So hopefully microsoft is still doing updates till 2026.

    Though I mostly use simplix update pack instead of bypass esu. So hopefully simplix update pack still manages to get the updates if there is more until 2026.

    Moin @ All!

    My March 2024 ESUpdate experience for Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64 systems:

    "Licensing method": KB4528069 & "new" BypassESU-v12

    "Installing method": Manual download and installation via Microsoft®Update-Catalog

    KB5035919 (Security Only Quality Update for Windows Embedded 7 Standard / Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1) -> succesfully installed

    The following additional updates were offered by the Microsoft servers via the Windows Update Search and were also successfully installed: Security Intelligence-Update for Microsoft Security Essentials and .NET 6.0.28 Security Update for x64 Client (KB5036450).

    @ abbodi1406: Thx for your support! Great job!

    Windows Server 2008 (not R2) also gets Premium Assurance updates until January 2026, and it's available for both x86 and x64 unlike R2.

    This means Windows 7 x86 will reach end of life 15 months earlier (October 2024) than Windows Vista x86 (January 2026)!

    Oh microsoft...:kick:
    The silver lining is that this further cements Vista's record of "longest updated version of Windows ever", coming in at just over 19 years! Well, technically it'd be minwin, and it only has 17 years + 11 months, but whatever. It still beats XP! :orb:

    I'm a bit lost now (but happy about the info).
    This means that if I want to install now a fresh copy of Windows 7 Pro x64, I don't have to apply one of the tricks with POSReady or the Server edition and "BypassESU-v12_u" is enough now?
    And the support will be until Jan 2026?
