Windows 7: Hey what happened to the /nobackup switch?

Hey what happened to the /nobackup switch?

I prefer to download & install security updates manually for both XP and Windows 7 x64.

In XP, I can use the /nobackup switch like so
-> C:\kbblablabla.exe /nobackup /norestart

Well in Windows 7 the updates are in .MSU files, and wusa.exe doesn't seem to accept the switch anymore. Is it really gone in Windows 7?

This tut will show you how to install manually.

Incidentally, that is the way to go. When you do install, do only one or two at a time to avoid conflicts, when several require a restart.
