You got it backward, the NEW cpu (Intel Kaby Lake and AMD Ryzen...) are "not supported" in windows 7 to 8.1 ... Not the old ones... This patch enable user with newer CPU's to receives windows updates with the old OS.

Oh yes sorry, my silliness there (I actually knew that but was clearly spamming out text without thinking through that example). Though the point is I still wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft does something to cause problems using the newer CPUs on older Windows systems.

Microsoft should hire "User".


I'm pretty sure you're being snide, I hope so lol.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if one of the future updates to something makes a MicrosoftApp.exe (maybe they'll be blatant and make it a system .dll) go out of it's way to specifically and arbitrarily use an instruction unsupported by older CPUs causing a crash on older systems.

Then they'll basically go "See this is why we aren't supporting those old CPUs, it was for your own good.", while pretending far more advanced and intensive software that runs just fine on those "older" CPUs seemingly due to a combination of voodoo, magic and bottled dark matter, doesn't exist.

Seems "WinTel" is alive an well.

Sigh, poor "User" will just be out of a job.
