Windows 7: Simplix update pack

Simplix update pack

I have just used a Simplix update pack. It has installed 59 updates. Is this about the right number? I thought there would be more but I'm happy if it has left out telemetry and other useless garbage.

It counts the big roll up as one, so that is why there appear to be fewer.

Sounds OK then.
Just puzzled by when I run Belarc Advisor it shows at the top that my installation is only missing 4 updates. If Simplix has dumped a lot of unnecessary stuff I'd expect Belarc to notice more than 4.

Updates from Microsoft are superseded by well, newer versions.
Win Update gives you all of them from the beginning, then updates with superseded versions.
Simplex & DISM++ don't provide the old version and then replace it with the current version.
M$ simply kept adding to the download list untill it became almost unmanagable then Convenience Rollup, etc.
Good, very informative: Understanding Windows Update Supersedence, Expirations ...

simplix, both have unique features

Simplix
Key /Reboot to automatically restart if it is needed.
Key /S for a fully silent install with no windows and messages. The case is significant.
Key /Silent for passive installation - you can see the progress, but the installation is fully automatic.
Key /IE11 installs Internet Explorer 11 and its localization (optional).
Key /Temp= allows you to specify a work location (optional).
Key /SmartFix integrates smartfix program by Simplix in the System Restore. File SmartFix.exe must be placed together with the Pack.
