It looks like Microsoft has discontinued the hotfix service for Windows users. The service which was started by Microsoft as an attempt to roll out small fixes for Windows without a full system-wide update. While end-users donít usually use hotfixes, itís used by system admins around the world.

Now System admins or users who tried to download the hotfixes got the message saying ďThis hotfix is no longer availableĒ. Microsoft hasnít officially commented on why they removed hotfixes so we canít say if itís temporary or permanent but it sure was a great way to deliver bug fixes.

The Hotfix service is no longer available. Instead, you can find your fix or patch by upgrading to the latest update available for your product.

You can also obtain Microsoft drivers, software updates, and other support files by downloading them from the Microsoft Catalog, the Microsoft Download Center, or upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 10 contains the most up-to-date security and other features built right in.

The company does say that the service is no longer available so we are guessing the move is permanent. That said, you can still download cumulative updates from Microsoft Catalog or from the Download Center but itís safe to say that we wonít be seeing Hotfix service anymore.
