​The page to get the WIN7 patch is linked from the XP page, but here is a direct link:


Once again, the site isn't exactly "user friendly".

There are two different versions for WIN7. One is 19 megs and one is about 30. I ended up downloading both​. If the smaller one doesn't work on a given machine, the other will. (There are also other versions for other versions of Windows 7 and 8.)

​I've successfully patched a non-Internet-facing WIN7 machine by dragging/dropping the file to a local folder. As a bonus, this update also fixed an annoying bug which would cause Windows to "forget" the SHARED USB drives that are connected to it after a reboot!​ (Thus, I had to manually re-share them after each reboot.) Now, the shares come up automatically as they should. :) YAY!

I've got more than half of our machines patched so far. It's moving along smoothly, thank the LORD! :)
