    I know it takes a lot of work to create and maintain a list of Windows Updates, so I thank those who created the WUD update lists. I downloaded the "windows-7-sp1-x64-enu.ul" file dated 2014-03-12 to compare with my own list that I have maintained since the release of Windows 7 SP1.


    There are sixteen (16) updates that are missing from "windows-7-sp1-x64-enu.ul". These updates were included in the Windows Update "Check for Updates" that is manually run on a monthly basis. These updates have not been replaced, which was confirmed with the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Regarding the updates that were replaced/superseded, I did use the Microsoft Support Articles and Security Bulletins to determine the replacement sequence. The exception was item [14] KB2529073 which is listed as replaced by KB2862330 in the Microsoft Update Catalog. However, by comparing which binaries (files) are listed in the Microsoft Support Articles, it can be determined that KB2529073 is replaced by KB2862330.

    The update replacement can be confirmed by starting with the Microsoft Support Article or Security Bulletin for the update listed last (most recent on listed on right), and then going thru the replacement sequence in reverse order. For three (3) updates indicated (*), it is also necessary to review the Security Bulletin Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) so see the updates(s) that were replaced.

    I did not know that, thanks. In next month's patch Tuesday, I will look in this area for replaced updates.

    As for KB2529073, it will be removed in the next available lists!
