Hi,
Try to install net framework 4.5.2 first before installing any updates.

Hi,

Thanks for replying.

1. .NET framework 4.5.2.....offline, doesn't show in the important updates, and don't plan a 10 upgrade, would rather purchase a clean DVD.

2. In which order after 4.5.2?

Best regards!

Wanted to show what it displayed after check for updates, after the 1st install that had errors, for which you recommended 25 bunch from bottom starting with KB3020469.

Want your expert suggestion, after you had a look and recommend a plan for another clean install.

Thanks.

PS: Update history has the same failed installs as posted earlier.
Hi Alex,

If by selecting 25 updates and it still fail to download. Simply just try downloading 1 or 2 updates from the bottom. See if this helps.

Dusk

Thanks Dusk for chiming in, what if I get an error with 1 or 2 , as I go up the list??

Bottom line, I have to learn to live with, face and ignore errors......there is nothing like a error free updating of W7......
Well, you have not even try updating just 1 specific update(which had failed) and you start asking "what if"...zzz

My advice, try it out and see what happens. You got to be patient.

Regards,
Dusk

Install the 2 updates you have on the flash drive or cd I forget which
After you connect to the internet and after you activate windows
Download and install net 4.5.2
After that installs then all important updates.

lol nope
For the record net 4.5.2 is a recommended update
It will not show up in the optional section yet I don't believe
net 4.6.1 may but i had problems with that version on my 32 bit system so I would use 4.5.2 instead for you

4.6.1 is for 64 bit systems?

4.5.1 and than in bunches of 25, starting from the bottom?
