Creating a fully updated wim manually, updates not installing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have read just about every article about this the last few days and still cant find a good answer/solution. Basically what I need, it to manually put all Windows 7 updates in the packages folder to install during the build process. I have all the files in .cab that get imported, but it seems like all of them never install. Example, I have 117 cab files, but only 60 updates install? Any idea why? Its not giving me any kind of error or anything either.

  • This question has been asked before; I'm interested to see what others find from their experience. In the meantime here's some reasons:

    • Sometimes some offline updates get superseded by newer updates. 
    • Some updates have to be installed exclusively.
    • Some updates can't be installed offline. To test this look in the cbs_unattend.log for [HRESULT = 0x800f082e - CBS_E_NOT_ALLOWED_OFFLINE]
    • Some updates are funny and have to go in a certain order so I would check for the order that they are installing when online.

    There's a great resource for windows setup logs here.
