  • Hello all

    Please advise how to install Windows updates via pendrive. 

    By the way, we need to update Windows 7 on an offline deployment.

    Thank you,

  • Go here in advance using Internet explorer,

    http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Install.aspx

    Point the downloads to your pin drive/ flash drive... Done.

    Connect it to the computer you want to install them on and drag and drop the updates to the downloads folder or anywhere really and run them one by one,

    It's a lot easier to clean install these days with the unofficial sp2
    There are essentially 3 updates needed for a clean install of windows that will get you updated through April of 2016

    When manually installing updates you need to switch your update settings to Never check for updates and restart the machine first.

    After restart you will need to ensure the built in windows update service is stopped and set to manual first too or it will conflict with the stand alone installer.

    Afterwards reset the windows updates service to what it was before and update settings to your preference and check for updates
    Should be only 50 or so updates left to install.

  • Thank you very much.

    The updates included on the Windows 7 SP2 unofficial are from February 2011?

    Regards,

  • I'm not sure when the first one was released it's just a requirement to install the other two so old or not it must be installed first :)
