Is Component Package v1.0.374 Being Offered to Win XP and Vista?

Recommended Posts

I have a Vista SP2 OS and can't get my MB Premium v3.5.1-1.0.365 to download the new component package v1.0.374 (see Erix's update announcement <here>) .  Every time I go to Settings | Application | Application Updates and click Install Application Updates it reports "Progress: No application updates are available".  The download link at https://downloads.malwarebytes.com/file/mb3/ is currently offering me a v3.5.1.2522-1.0.365 installer.

Should Win XP and Vista users expect to receive the v1.0.374 component package?  Ransomware protection is not available on these older OSs and I also found a recent post added to the FAQ titled Malwarebytes Support for Legacy Windows XP and Vista Operating Systems announcing that "Users running Malwarebytes 3.5 on Windows XP and Vista will continue to receive on-going protection updates to keep safe from the latest infections. However these operating systems will no longer receive program upgrades,such as component packages or newer program versions, for new features."

Does that means that product and component package updates for MB v3.5.1 are stopping immediately for XP and Vista, or should product and component package updates continue to be delivered until v3.6.x is released?

Hi lmacri--

Great question!  Thanks for giving us the opportunity to further clarify.

At this point there will be no further component package updates sent out to legacy OSes, so 1.0.365 is the most current version for XP and Vista.  1.0.374 is not available for, nor has it been tested on, these OSes.

So you've got the latest for Vista.  ?

Hi bdubrow:

Thanks for your prompt response.

Would it be possible to revise Erix's update announcement <here> for component package v1.0.374 to include this information?  I only stumbled across the Malwarebytes Support for Legacy Windows XP and Vista Operating Systems post yesterday even though it was appended to the FAQ on 17-May-2018, and I can't see anything about this change in support for older OSs pinned at the top of the Malwarebytes 3 Support Forum or  Malwarebytes News board.

Excellent point.

I will keep the release announcement at the version level, however it is definitely worth it detailing the build and package number of the Legacy OS support MB3 in the FAQ article. Agreed, our XP / Vista users will have to find this site specifically and it is not as prominent as most publications, however with your help and the help of our community I am sure all of our XP / Vista users will be able to find the information needed going forward.

Thank you so much.
