Are there any variants (Like point of sale editions) that Microsoft will continue to support?
I remembered the support was ending soon, so for the lols i installed Vista Ultimate into a VM and run some updates before the update servers were taken down, Had to manually install a bunch of updates to even get windows update working properly. Though hey, least i now have a up-to-date vista install before such a thing would be near impossible in 2 days
I'm surprised support had been going on this long.
XP was shit if you ever used it BITD.
I wonder if Vista will become Abandon wear then.
So, I had the same Windows Update issue that has plagued many Vista users for the last couple years. Here is what you need to install, and in this order, (from the Microsoft Update Catalog) to get it working again:
Once I installed those, the update check finished in a few minutes.
Kudos to "Adventures in Nostalgia" on YouTube for this information.
So from what you're saying, Vista updates are still available? Interesting to know, even if not many people cared much about Vista as far as I'm aware.
Yes, Vista updates (up to end of support) and the Windows Ultimate Extras downloads are still available.
