Microsoft Corporation released cumulative update KB2952664 on February fourteen two thousand eighteen for Windows 7 operating system. Actually, this KB2952664 update was released on October thirty first two thousand seventeen as an optional update. I have no idea why Microsoft changed this from optional to recommended.
This update does NOT include any bug and or security fixes. This update does not include any new features. According to Microsoft this is what this update provides:
“This update performs diagnostics on the Windows systems that participate in the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program. The diagnostics evaluate the compatibility status of the Windows ecosystem, and help Microsoft to ensure application and device compatibility for all updates to Windows. There is no GWX or upgrade functionality contained in this update.”
