Maintenance Release 1 for Windows 7


In January 2013, the IT Support Center will roll out Maintenance Release 1 (2013-1) for Windows 7 to all PCs running the administrative desktop. These patches are of the UTMOST importance. There are certain security updates that must be put in place asap.  In addition to the security updates, MS Office will also be updated to version 2010. There are resources on the IT Support Center website if you have questions or issues. The resources can be found at Microsoft Office 2010 Support Resources.  You should also review the Maintenance Release 1 FAQ.

Maintenance Release 2013-1 will include:

  • Mozilla Firefox 17.0.0 (Add-ons IE Tab and Zotero 3.0.8)
  • Mozilla Thunderbird 17.0.0 (Add-ons Display Quota 0.3.5 and LookOut 1.2.13)
  • Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 11.5.502.110
  • Adobe Flash Player Plugin 11.5.502.110
  • Adobe Reader XI (With Spelling Dictionary Pack and Font Pack)
  • Adobe Shockwave Player
  • Oracle Java Runtime Environment 6
  • Apple QuickTime 7.7.3 (With Apple Application Support)
  • Microsoft Office 2010

Any off-campus machines will need to be brought on-site and connected to the network (wired, not wireless) in order for this update to run successfully. 

Depending on the speed of your PC and the number of users that apply the maintenance release simultaneously, it will take approximately 20 to 45 minutes to complete.
