View Full Version : Windows updates and updates to updates

Not all updates make their way to windows updates. Some are just posted on microsoft download page.

Did anyone ever noticed that these updates on microsoft download page might have v2 or v3 etc.. in the file name.

What i was wondering lets say if you install v2, and few months later a v3 comes out, will it get picked up and ask you to update? or will you have to uninstall the older version and install the updated update?

The new update would likely have instructions if special care is needed. Otherwise I would assume it's safe enough to install it over the old one.
