I'm sure they'll get enough reports back about it.

I got it now, thanks for clearing that up.

The Downloading Updates procedure has elapsed the 6 hour mark now. The longest I have ever known it to be. I have noticed these last few months it's becoming longer and longer....

Is anybody else having to wait painfully as well?

Hi Borg,
Thank you for this post of offline updaters. Have been trying to understand the User interface from the author's page since June, but found it lacking in clarity. This link shows a much simpler and easier way to understand it's usage. [ 4 Tools to Update Windows Offline and install Hotfixes from a Local Source • Raymond.CC - Page 2 ] . Have been hesitant/wary, trying to update a friend's computer from a 2yr old Macrium image. After seeing this, am more confident. Don't want to bork-it-up...

Cheers!

Yes, I understand your concern. I'm a bit wary too, but I will be trying a couple of them out down the road. My hope is that these updaters will separate the cumulative patches into individual KB's & then you would still have a choice which one to apply.

All of this months updates looked security related so I haven't tried uninstalling one via command line, but should one come up that looks suspicious or I don't want, then I will try that method of removing it after the cumulative has installed. Not sure if individual patches will be able to uninstalled, but I'm hoping this works & keeps us from having to resort to 3rd party telemetry blockers.

It's the link which says "Bitte Hier Klicken" on the right hand side of the site.

If you guys could advise me, that would be great. I am going to use wsus offline to grab my security updates, as this will be the first time using this piece of software. What box/boxes do I need to check?

Cheers.

If you're using 64-Bit Windows 7 then you need to tick the x64 box. The only other one I tick is "include C++ runtimes and .NET Frameworks", but that's a personal preference.

Also tick the "create ISO" box if you want to put the updates on to a DVD.

The x64 Updates downloaded in 2/3 minutes. Just one other thing, before I install them..I noticed there are 231 files in the client folder - w61-x64 which equals to 1.13GB. Does that sound right to you, before I push the button.

2 - 3 minutes sounds way too fast. My Internet speed is fast and it doesn't finish that quickly. It takes more like 20 - 30 minutes. The client folder should be a lot bigger than that once completed.

You sure you selected the correct options? Selected x64 under the Windows 7 section?

Just running now and even after 20 minutes it's still going, and that's with verify updates unchecked. Which adds some time on to verify.

Edit: Okay, just finished, took 25 minutes and my client folder is 2.84GB and 1.33GB without the .NET and C++ updates. So yours might be right without all the extras. Still seems extremely fast though.
