    "This version of the Windows Genuine Advantage validation tool is no longer supported. Please download the newest version and ensure that your system clock is accurate"

    Please tell me where to get the latest version?

    So, I have use "Microsoft Genunie Advantage Diagnostic Tool", but Validation Code is zero (0)

    2. I use Win7 Home Pre with legal of MS

    3. I search in some of web page and I found the "Windows6.1-KB978044-x64.msu" file. When I install, I receive the message as below:

    "The update is not applicable to your computer"

    Please help me to get this hotfix with my windows (Win7 Home Pre)

  • You MUST use Internet Explorer 32-bit to access validation-related sites and downloads.

    The 64-bit download can be got from here - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=2656 using IE 32-bit

    Do NOT select the Alternative validation method.

  • Hi Noel Paton,

    I try to install Sony Vaio Care and the USB Composite Device is OK although the KB978044 is not update.

    But I still want to update this hotfix.

    Thanks for your help

  • YOu don't need to install it - it was already installed when you updated the system to Service pack 1
