Updating windows offline

11-Mar-2018 10:24

Having just installed Windows 7 to see how many updates are available for the most popular version of Windows, it’s quite shocking to see it has 117 important updates ready to be downloaded!

And that obviously doesn’t include recommended updates like the multitude of newer .

It can also download and install updates for several different languages so you’re not restricted to just English.

After downloading, extracting and running the Update Generator.exe, tick the boxes to select the operating system versions, Office versions and languages you require.

Once completed, you can then take the disc or drive to another computer and run Update to popup the installer window. NET Frameworks, Power Shell and Media Player will be greyed out depending on whether you have the option already installed or if operating system supports it.

The “Automatic reboot and recall” option is a potential big time saver if you want the updates to be installed unattended.

Critical or important patches will be ticked already, those in blue are currently installed on your system and don’t need selecting unless there is a specific need to do so.

While it isn’t as quick as a slipstreamed disc, this method is an awful lot quicker than waiting for everything to be downloaded and installed from the internet, and can be left to it while you go and do something else.

Alternatively choose the USB medium option to copy the updates onto a USB flash or hard drive.

Once you press Start, a Command Prompt window will open and begin downloading the files from Microsoft, the wait could be long if you’ve selected multiple options.

Some users even install their operating system regularly to keep it clean and running at maximum performance.

Whether you’re installing a new Windows by choice or by necessity, you will soon be pretty sick of wasting hours downloading all the hotfixes from Windows Update and continuously downloading patch after patch.
