hope it helps for offline users
Microsoft releases regular updates for operating systems to keep the systems updated for latest threats. If you are running your system on Windows 7 with proper internet connection, Windows 7 should have been getting updated in a regular basic using Windows Live Update. But if you don’t have proper internet connectivity and still want to keep your Windows 7 updated, you need to download Windows 7 offline updater. Windows 7 offline Updater is a pack of all Windows 7 updates.
All you need to do is download Windows 7 updates pack using a internet connected computer and then install it on your system. You can also call it Windows 7 standalone update installer (.msu) which will be containing all Windows 7 updates till it’s packaging.

Please elaborate on the Offline Update Process for Windows 7.
My Desktop has no Internet available and is running Windows 7 Ultimate 63bit.
My Laptop has WiFi and accesses the Internet regularly and is running Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
I wish to update my Desktop with my Laptop.
I also really need to know how to update Windows 7 offline.
For security reasons, I can't cannot a laptop to the Internet except for the initial install and patches. I will need to keep this laptop up to date in patches without connecting it to a network again, so will have to burn them to a cd and install them from it.
I also need to do this only using Microsoft products (no 3rd party options).
Download the udpates with WSUS Offline Update and run(replace C:\updates where you stored the updates).
DISM /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:C:\updates

More questions, if you could answer.
I was able to update my offline machine through DISM. However, I didn't lie how the updates did not display when I looked at the "Installed Updates" section in Programs/Applications. The only way I have had success in having that occur updating my offline machine is by running the Standalone updates 1 at a time.
Do you know of a way to have all of the most recent updates installed in packages just as it would using Windows Update?
There seems to have been a Windows Update Agent for use with XP. However does not seem to have been updated by Microsoft for use with Vista or Windows 7. Here's a couple links that I read on WUA
When i integrate the updates with DISM they are shown in the list. Check the DISM.log if errors occurred while integrating the updates.

I do like to check with you is it possible for a window 7 standalone user to do the update that you suggest?
