Convenience Rollup

On May 17, 2016, Microsoft released a Convenience Rollup for Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 7. This Rollup includes almost all fixes released after SP1 through April 2016. See the article for the list of excluded hotfixes.

  1. If you have not yet run Windows Updates, download and install 3020369.
  2. Then install the Convenience Rollup hotfix by running AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64.msu. This hotfix is 476 MB.
  3. Click Yes to install the software update.

Individual Hotfixes

Alternatively, you can install individual hotfixes. These hotfixes are specific to Remote Desktop Session Host, group policies, printing, and SMB redirector and are not included in the normal Windows Update process. To get the hotfix go to the Microsoft KB article’s webpage. There is a link at the top of the page that takes you to a form where you can request the hotfix.

          1. thanks, can you install windows updates after plus basics Flash, Silverlight, adobe reader, java etc before converted to PVS image?

  1. I´m very confused about the first known issue described on the MS Article about the vNICs!
    Do you have any experience with this hotfix on VMs on ESX or XenServer?

    Next question:
    Are all the individual hotfixes you listed in this article included in the convenience rollup?

    1. Yes, I think all of them are included.

      The convenience Rollup includes the pci.sys fix, which prevents a new vmxnet3 NIC from being created every time the machine is cloned. However, one final new vmxnet3 is created when the Hotfix is installed. If you’re running PvS then already have this fix installed so it shouldn’t be a problem.

        1. I figured it comes from Windows Updates. Do you think admins would install the Convenience Update before installing Windows Updates?

  2. Carl do you think these hot fixes should all be applied to a Windows 2008 r2 session host in Xenapp/desktop 7.X?
