    Summary of Windows Essentials 2012 QFE1
    QFE1 version
    - Digital signature date Sept 27, 2012
    - Build version 16.4.3505.0912

    Under the hood updates for forward compatibility with older systems capable of upgrading to Windows 8, under the hood updates,
    backend server compatibility, and a few unknowns. <g>

    Fyi.
    If using Movie Maker 2012 on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 on a system with DirectX 9, install KB 2741355 (if not already done
    via Windows Update) prior to installing/updating Windows Essentials 2012 QFE1 PhotoGallery/Movie Maker.
    - Photo Gallery and Movie Maker is a single package (can not be installed separately)

    i.e. KB 2741355 is a pre-requisite for Movie Maker 16.4.3505.0912
    http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=2741355

    Notes: (please read)
    Like Windows Essentials 2012 RTW the QFE1 version will:
    - remove (if present) Live Mesh and offer Microsoft SkyDrive
    - remove Messenger Companion (web add-on for Internet Explorer)
    - if your pc does not support hardware rendering and only supports software rendering you will not see animations in Windows
    Essentials 2012 (including animated gifs and animated emoticons in Messenger)

  3. Hello Winston,

    Are there any particular changes made to Windows Live Mail in the new
    version 16.4.3505.0912?
    After i had installed the update, my (German) language setting of WLM had
    turned to English,
    in order to switch it back, i had to look for the langselect tool (in
    program files\windows live) and switching the langruage was done in 20 secs.

    Everything works fine, just wondering if there is a known change in WLM,
    e.g. the error 3204 problem :)

    greetings

    The Movie Maker 12 item noted in the first post is the primary update.
    Afaics, nothing elsewhere.

    The only folks that can answer anything about the 3204 error are support personnel if escalated back to the developers (and if they
    decide to respond).
