Windows 7 EOL Extended Support Patching

Recommended Posts

It appears that Microsoft  will be allowing us to purchase extended Windows 7 support on a computer by computer basis that need to be "Activated"

Does anyone know if Patching will still work with these Activate machines

Based on what I've read my general understanding is something like: the license gives you a key, which you then activate and translate to another key which you add to Windows.  Then in the end supposedly the updates will just get detected by WU.
