Hi,
You don't need to be activated to manually install KB3020369 & KB3172605
But you will need to be activated to install anything else though

Micro... has been playing cat and mouse with downloads
Here are some direct links to them

Win-7 64 bit

KB3172605 newest update client is in this update but KB3020369 is required to install it.

Not sure about Roy as his experience may be different to mine. But whenever I've installed VM's, I've never had that WAT update installed (usually my test VM's are never up and running long enough for me to even need to activate them anyway)

The issue many users have faced is a problem with the old Windows Update Agent, it doesn't seem to work well with MS servers lately and needs an update. There's been numerous long threads about the issues over the past 12 months.

That July rollup contains the latest Windows update client and seems to fix the issues I've had with my VM new installs not updating. It's taken MS months to properly fix this though, with many different update clients being pushed out. The latest does seem to be the most effective though.

With regards to your driver issues, it's probably easier to open a new thread for those as you'll most likely get more detailed help.

Glad it's helped anyway

Hi,
Indeed
Personally I would start over seeing the errors
I've manually installed the 2 updates without an internet connection after getting to the desktop so I know they can be installed without activating first
Only trick is to have them on a flash drive.

Once they are installed activate windows
At some point updating you'll be prompted to install the activation update pointed out.

Windows 7 home premium x64
 
 

I'm not sure which one, but one (or more) of the 222 updates that I installed afterwards caused a black screen after I rebooted to install the 222 updates that were downloaded. I was able to reboot to the last successful boot, but I'm wondering if anyone knows which update (post July Rollout) is the culprit, because I would like to get that off my system ASAP.

This was BEFORE I even attempted to install any NVIDIA drivers, so I know it wasn't a fault driver issue.
