It’s not Patch Tuesday, but there are updates admins should look for this week as Microsoft delivers updates across its portfolio of recent operating systems.
A tool is now available for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 which checks for inconsistencies and potential errors with software updates. The Software Update Tool checks the integrity of a few folders and repairs any issues with registry data.
A platform update is also available for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. The update fixes a number of components, including the Windows Imaging Component and Direct3D.
Windows Server 2012 Essentials, the home business version of the server operating system, received server-side fixes in its first rollup update. It adds the option to use a third-party hosted email service and updates the .NET framework to a new version.
