Windows 7 is still used on about 40% of Windows desktops, and will likely remain popular for a few years after its scheduled end of life in January 2020. Would this be a hard drop, i.e. would installing 3.8 be prevented in Windows 7? Or would it install but require users to manually install KB2533623?
