Platform Update for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008



Hello WSUS admins,


 


Here’s some additional information on the recently announced Platform Update for Windows Vista and Platform Update for Windows Server 2008. These two updates are part of a broader set of updates being offered to improve the interoperability of earlier versions of Windows with applications and devices designed to run on Windows 7.


 


For the unmanaged clients, the platform update for either Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 is offered as a bundled, or cumulative, update containing all the unique components.  To give you greater control of the updates deployed through WSUS, we are offering the components of these updates as separate individual packages that can be approved by platform.


 


The individual components are as follows:


 


KB971512 – Updates the Windows graphics, imaging, and XPS libraries (Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008).


 


KB971513 – Provides the Windows Automation API (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008).


 


KB960362 – Provides support for applications that use the Windows Ribbon and Animation Manager Library (Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008).


 


KB971514 – Provides the Windows Portable Devices Platform (Windows Vista).


 


Thanks,


 


The MU/WSUS teams

    The Platform Update for Windows Vista and the Platform Update for Windows Server 2008 are end-user operating system updates that support the use of selected Windows 7 technologies on previous versions of the Windows operating system. The updates include
    a set of runtime libraries that enable application developers to target current releases, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as well as previous versions, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

    Windows Vista will receive bits and pieces of Windows 7 via Windows Update (Automatic Updates), Windows Server Update Services and the Microsoft Download Center. But only is Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Vista is already in place. I already told you about the
    Platform Update for Windows Vista – Beta Download Script (KB971644) a while back. Now the Platform Update for Windows Vista KB 971644 is done and heading to Vista SP2 computers worldwide. The same is valid for the Platform Update for Windows Server 2008 and
    Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Vista SP2 will be enhanced with collections Windows 7 RTM of runtime libraries. Vista SP2’s evolution toward Windows 7 involves: Windows Graphics, Imaging, and XPS Library; Windows Automation API; Windows Portable Devices Platform; Windows Ribbon and Animation
    Manager Library.
