Avg 2016 keeps updating
Not even Direct X 12, as the games still support Direct X 11 and most probably will for the next 5 years or so. After April next year I would understand if they don't care, but as of now we are still in extended support so they SHOULD fix such a glaring and crippling problem.
But Vista is used by 1.5% of the world, so the guys at Microsoft don't care. Look at the games that don't officially support Vista, but after you install Direct X 11 they just launch and work as they should.
I actually have a Win10 machine that I bought 2 years ago (upgraded from 8.1). All other stuff that I can still do with my Vista, I do it on my old laptop.
Though that will change next year after Vista support ends. Now from this thread I gather you just need to follow the instructions here ( and that will fix it for this month?
Has there been any indication that Microsoft is aware of this problem? Anyway, maybe someone WILL be able to find a way to install the version of the latest WU agent that 7 supports. There are 2 options: we find a way to install 7's Windows Update or we keep finding KBs like idiots, no offense for the guys that find them, they help us. Is there a reason why Win 7 WU cannot be used on Vista? Can't we make them aware of this bug and let them spend an afternoon to fix it? In less than a year we will have no chance anymore of getting it fixed.
Are they going to fix it before Vista support ends next year? Anyway, maybe someone WILL be able to find a way to install the version of the latest WU agent that 7 supports. I'm not a techie but even the best AV miss viruses and systems still have loopholes no?
