HP Inc - Software Component - 4.2.629.0 Update Question

HP Recommended

Hello,

 

On my laptop's Windows Update, I have received an update from HP - HP Inc - SoftwareComponent - 4.2.629.0, Pending install.

 

I am not certain what this update is or what it does. There is no information from HP about this update. 

 

Can HP provide information on this update or anyone else received this update?

 

Thank you!

Hello
the question comes up from time to time.
I have already done research for the same problem, not knowing what I was going to install.
But the results are always quite imprecise, it comes back sometimes, a link with hp analytiics, but nothing more ...

What is it that you don't understand?

Sorry I use a translator, not always easy, but hey:


1 / the question has already been asked several times here
2 / I have done several searches, and the results are not precise!
3 / It is often the hp analytics software that is mentioned
4 / using the microsoft catalog

https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx
I found another file, no result with the one mentioned, but it gives what is in answer 3 here
