Windows 7 Blockade Lifted By Developers For Unsanctioned Patch
A recent post on GitHub reveals that Ziffy has finally figured out a way to undo Microsoft’s no support over the new silicon policy. An anonymous developer recently published a post that criticizes Microsoft’s security updates for barring from Windows 7 and Window 8.1 PCs which are equipped by the latest processors.
The patch talks about how he looked in to update roll up released by Microsoft on 16th March, which pretty much forces the consumers to upgrade to the new Window version.
In 2016, it was announced that the new Windows upgradations might not be suitable for the outdated CPU and Intel models. This further initiated that some security updates will be barred by the Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs users as a resort to solve the problem.
However, this Blockade can cause a serious problem, as- if a PC is blocked from receiving any security updates by Microsoft and the user seeks to get an update, they will not be able to break through this block, due to the Windows error, or just because it doesn’t match with the company policy. Zeffy just wanted to point out the issue and bring it to the company’s eye. His post contains all the files through which a user can detect the blockade code. He concluded his article with the solution at wuaueng.dll, which harbored the detection code and the ban code.
