The Update is Not Applicable To Your Computer when installing patch on Windows Server 2008 R2 machine

    Question

  • When I try to install security patch KB2525694 and KB978542 on my Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, I get the message "The Update is Not Applicable To Your Computer".  I am using the following files:

    Windows6.1-KB978542-x64 (KB978542)

    Windows6.1-KB2525694-x64 (KB2525694)

    I believe these are the correct files but no luck installing it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • KB978542 on my Windows Server 2008 R2 machine, I get the message "The Update is Not Applicable To Your Computer".  I am using the following files:

    Windows6.1-KB978542-x64 (KB978542)

    For WS2008R2, this update applies to machines which have manually installed "Windows Live Mail":
    https://technet.microsoft.com/library/security/ms10-030

    [1]Windows Live Mail is an out-of-box component on this operating system that needs to be installed separately for the vulnerability to exist.
