Sometimes when installing the EVO drivers on a Windows 7 machine, you might come across an error asking you to make sure that hotfix KB3033929 is installed on your computer:
This happens because the EVO drivers require the latest Windows 7 updates, including the convenience rollup update for Windows 7 SP1, which does not get installed through the automatic Windows Update but requires a manual installation.
In order to install the convenience rollup, you first need to make sure you have done all updates available through Windows Update. To do this:
- Select the Start button > All programs > Windows Update.
- In the left panel, select Check for updates
- Install any updates that are found by Windows.
After this has been done, you are ready to install the convenience rollup. The first step is to determine if you are working on a 32-bit or a 64-bit operating system. To do this:
- Open the Start menu.
- Right-click on Computer, and click on Properties in the context menu.
- See whether the System type: field under System says 32-bit Operating System or 64-bit Operating System.
Now all you need to do is head over to this Microsoft Update Catalog URL containing the convenience rollup update, download either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the update depending on what your system is using, run the update and follow the on-screen instructions to apply it.
Once the convenience rollup has been installed, you can run the installer for the EVO drivers and it should work without any errors.
