Windows 7 Sp2 Download X64

Posted on  by admin

Since the release of Windows 7 back in 2009, hundreds of updates have been issued for the aging OS, and anyone who has done a clean install of Windows 7 knows how painful the updating process can be.

Officially, Microsoft only released a single service pack for Windows 7 - Service Pack 1 was released to the public on February 22, 2011.

However, despite promising that Windows 7 would only have one service pack, Microsoft decided to release a "convenience rollup" for Windows 7 in May 2016. This single package combines all previously released updates from the release of SP1 to April 2016.

So even though Microsoft isn't calling this a service pack, for all intents and purposes, it serves as one. This article will show you how to install the convenience update (SP2 for Windows 7).

Before you begin

Check if your PC is 32-bit or 64-bit

Note: System Administrators can use DISM to integrate this package into their installation media to simplify future Windows 7 installations. Before installing the convenience update, make sure:.

Disk space requirements

You are running Windows 7 SP1. You have at least 5 GB of free space available on your system disk.

You have installed KB3020369 (download links below).

Once the prerequisites are met, you can download the convenience update from the links below.

When the download has finished, double-click the file, and follow the on-screen instructions.

This is a large update, so the searching and installation process may take a while.

Please be patient. Note: Remember, since Microsoft isn't calling this update a service pack, the version number listed in System Properties will remain Windows 7 SP1.

Install other Windows Updates. The convenience rollup only contains the updates released after Service Pack 1 and before April 2016.

Any updates for Windows 7 that Microsoft has released since then will not be installed, so you should run Windows Update to install any other available updates.

Also, the convenience update does not include Internet Explorer 11 or the latest .NET Framework Updates.

Back up important files

You should install those packages manually or from Windows Update if you need them.

Plug in and connect to the Internet

Disable antivirus software

Some antivirus software might prevent SP1 from installing or slow down the installation. You can temporarily disable your antivirus software before the installation. If you do so, make sure you’re aware of the risks that might be involved and re-enable the antivirus software as soon as SP1 is done installing.

  5. Follow the instructions to install SP1.

  6. After SP1 is installed, sign in to your PC. You might see a notification indicating whether the update was successful. If you disabled your antivirus software before the installation, make sure you turn it back on.

Troubleshoot problems installing Windows SP1

If you try to install SP1 and see an error message that the installation wasn’t successful, this might be because there’s a problem with the Windows Servicing Store that is used to install updates or because your antivirus software is preventing the update from being installed.

To try and fix the problem, follow these steps and then try to install SP1 again.
