Windows 10, Windows 8.1 & Windows 7 etc. are the current OS and already received update during the March & April updates.

So all current Windows with updates to date need not worry.

I am talking about the patch download link, where Win8 is present, but NOT for Win7.

For the current mainstream Windows the patch was already provided with monthly updates in March.

See this link (monthly & individual patch download for Windows 7 is also there)

You can download the May monthly pack which will include all security updates from the link below.

http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4019264

"2017-05 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4019264)"

162.9MB (Last in the list)

But it is better to directly update from within Windows update.

These updates are for Windows 7 (x64) SP 1.

Are you looking for Service Pack 1 also - or is it already installed?
