Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes


Important Windows 7 updates and Windows Server 2008 R2 updates are included in the same packages. However, updates on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the update package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the update that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each update applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760
    0.16xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    RTM

    GDR

    6.1.760
    0.20xxx

    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    RTM

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, extremely important issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 R2 and for Windows 7" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
