However, even before they discontinued it I was never able to get a copy of the HotFix despite requesting it multiple times from Microsoft. Does anyone here have a copy they could share with me as I still need this for several machines I have running Windows 7.

You appear to have mixed up your Micros - this is a Micro Focus-hosted forum not Microsoft. You should contact Microsoft for their HotFixes.
As Julian_DC pointed out, it is no longer available for download from the Microsoft site. Instead, as a workaround, Microsoft suggests an upgrade to Windows 10. :-(
I don't know where to obtain the hotfix or if it can legally be redistributed. I do know there are a lot of Windows 7 systems out there and not having access to this hotfix could be a major issue for many customers.
