    Server 2012 Updates Successfully Installed on Windows 8

    Well, I have done some experimentation this evening, and I'm happy to say the updates for Windows Server 2012 install successfully on to Windows 8, including those for IE10. I thought you might be interested in some of my findings so far, so I've linked to my thread on MSFN.

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8 - Windows 8 - MSFN Forum

    Cheers All!

    Wow, I'm surprised how little interest this seems to garner. There must be users of Windows 8 that would see this as a big deal (especially as it indicates a future for Vista post-support as well - given there are Server 2008 updates to be had after 2017). Oh well. I'm happy.

    Well Patch Tuesday is here again, and as a Windows 8 user (yes the original version), I'm happy to say that I was able to amass the updates for March 2016 from Server 2012, and use them to patch Windows 8 for a second month in a row. I have to say, especially given that this IS a Windows 8 Forum, I'm surprised that there is no interest in this whatsoever. You'd think that there are fans of Windows 8 that would be thrilled that there is a source for updates. What gives?

    Well I still am surprised as ever that there is zero interest in this thread (especially given it's a Windows 8 Forum). However, being that I'm obviously a glutton for punishment, here are the updates that I successfully installed today on Windows 8 Pro (original) from Server 2012 (for April 2016).

    KB3154132 (for Adobe Flash Player), KB3148198 (for IE 10), KB3142043 (for .NET Framework v3.5), KB3135456, KB3145739, KB3146706, KB3146723, KB3146963 and KB3149090

    So that's three months of post-support updates that I've successfully installed on to Windows 8.

    Thank you sinnerman. I appreciate the feedback. I didn't mean to go on and on about it. Sometimes though, I'm so shocked when you post something that you figure for sure would be of interest to the Windows 8 community, and then ZERO feedback. Just leaves you scratching your head.

    It's most likely because there aren't that many users Win 8 that haven't already moved on to Win 8.1 or Win 10.

    We need a way to get those updates automatically. It's nice to know there is a way to get them, but it's very hard to pick them one by one.
