Is it likely that the WLM 2012 update will be offered automatically, at some point, as part of the Windows Update process?

I don't think I've ever seen updates to Windows Essentials offered in Windows Update.

If you uninstall all of Windows Essentials WU will offer it I think!.

Well! Just returned from weekend away. On switching on my computer I was immediately offered an update for Windows Essentials (Build 16.4.3522.0110) :scratch: On clicking 'yes', WE was automatically downloaded and updated (all elements of WE, not just mail). All seems to have gone well and no problems encountered.

Hmmm... I wonder how that works then. I have build 16.4.3508.0205, but Windows Update doesn't offer me the newer version, even if I tell it to look for updates...

It wasn't the normal Windows Update process - a small Windows Essentials logo (I think! - definitely wasn't the WU logo though) appeared on my task bar saying an update to Windows Essentials was available - click here to ........ etc etc. Once 'clicked' a small Windows Essential window opened and automatically started to download and go through the updates to all the WE components. Have absolutely no idea why/how, but I'm not complaining - yet!

Apparently Microsoft is rolling out the update at the moment - I just now got offered the update too. It is a separate updater indeed, not the standard Windows Update one.

Perhaps the comments made in Eileen's Lounge reach the deep, dark and mysterious recesses of planet Microsoft? :innocent: There again, perhaps not! :grin:

I very much doubt that. Very little from the outside world reaches the deep, dark and mysterious recesses of planet Microsoft...
