What changed that the new version of Wireguard client now requires 
KB2921916 on Windows 7 when the previous version didn't?

Both my Windows 7 systems are saying KB2921916 isn't applicable to my 
computer but the new Wireguard client won't install.

Must I force install KB2921916 or is the installer perhaps just not 
recognising that KB2921916 has been superseded by something else?

Hi Brian,

Rats. Can you check if you already have KB2921916 installed? Can you
type at the command prompt:

    wmic qfe > sendtojason.txt

And then send me the "sendtojason.txt" file?

Is there anything unusual about your system? Which service pack? Which build?

I'm interested in learning whether:
- The detection logic for the KB we have is wrong; or
- There are some Windows 7 configs for which the KB isn't applicable; or
- If there's some way to lodge your system into this state, which we
should correct; or
- Something else?

Jason

With no further info from you, it's hard to know how to proceed. I'll
be releasing this fix in the next version hoping it's sufficient for
you:
