I was trying to use Update7v7 but ran into the situation which someone else had mentioned earlier too. After selecting the Update folder, I am presented with no images. I even used the UpdateRE7v3 but even that couldn't locate the Images.

Looks like there is an issue somewhere. For clarification I am using the Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1 ISO downloaded from Digital River.

P.S. When i use Update7v5, the images are shown correctly. I do run into other errors while trying to update using Update7v5 but I will keep that as a separate topic. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I do plan on comparing the code for the 2 zip files to see if I can locate any discrepancies.

************************ EDIT 1 ************************

I compared the Update-win7.CMD file against Update-win7v5.CMD The 7v7 file calls the Imagex as follows:
Code:
BIN\imagex /info %Wimpath% >BIN\wiminfo.txt
where the Wimpath is shown without quotes however the Update7v5 calls the same command as
Code:
BIN\imagex /info "%Wimpath%" >BIN\wiminfo.txt
When I check wiminfo.txt for both the versions, I see the one in 7v7 shows the help info on how to use imagex while the one in 7v5 shows the output of the command.

Si, maybe this is the issue but I am not sure since I have not coded Win based systems for a very long time. Comments?
What I noticed when working on this on my end is I was presented with the same thing until I renamed the folder containing the extracted ISO to the same folder name as the mounted disk. After renaming this folder it now works.

Hopefully this applies to your issue.

I suggest you use this instead:

Thanks. I tried this tool but it will take some to to research how to use it on my end. Is there a update list that is compatible with your batch file out of the box?

I do not need the most recent updates, but only get to a point where I don't run into the "checking for updates" bug where updates are never found
