Hi, Then how to check whether all updates are installed.
Is there a complete list of files that contain all the updates and in the same order that it gives in view installed updates so that one could easily find the missing updates and manually update as per your tutorial.
If the order is not , then it will be another lengthy process of ticking each one.
If the checksur.log contains nil error what that means? Should we take that all are installed

View Update History will show you since the successfully installed updates are listed as well.

The best way to tell is if after you check for updates, there are none available to install.

Manual vs Automatic

Here's something weird that I experienced this weekend installing Microsoft Security Updates on Windows 2008R2 and 2012R2 servers.
Installing the updates through the Windows Update program, the 8 to 11 updates installed quickly. Usually in less than 8 minutes.
But if I tried to install by grabbing the Windows Update MSU file from Microsoft, then double-click on that MSU file, the system would just sit and sit and sit on the "checking for updates" message. Sometimes 30-45 minutes. Then finally, pop up a message asking me if I want to install this update. Of course, after waiting for almost an hour for it to figure out what to do, of course I hit yes...
My question is; why does it take SOOOOOO much longer to install the exact same updates individually from the MSU files than it does through Windows Update?

Hello ekummel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Usually, installing from a MSU would be faster since you don't have to wait on the Windows Update to download the update before installing.

I suppose something else could have been interfering causing a delay, but you could check the Windows Update log to see if anything may stand out.

Hi, Brink.
i searched for tutorial on wsus offline installer in your forum. But nearest search fetched me this page.
I have downloaded the required files after installing wsus offline and then clicked update generator exe. Now, the target folder is client folder in the installation folder of wsus offline and all the updates have been downloaded from servers and ready to be installed.
Can i copy the whole folder, ie , wsus created folder, which also contains the update folder in subfolder client, to a pendrive and use in updating another computer. or should i have to install some thing more to the pendrive if i want to update to another computer. pl.
Long time no see, as i was busy in learning mobi tricks, as i bought a new samsung phone. If there are tutorials in that i will look here also. Thanks expecting a reply

Hello jraju,

It's good to hear from you.

I haven't used WSUS Offline Installer, but as long as it created installable files, it should work.

Hi, I mean that if i do not select any output folder, the installation is stored in the client folder in the same directory as is the place of the wsus installed directory. if suppose, i download the zip, that is used for generating the updates, and also the extract of actual updates , then would it be possible to use the other machine to just install the already downloaded ready updates to that machine using the pendrive. this is the question. as you are an expert, i raise this query. Why not a tutorial on your site on this important easy to update feature. I just downloaded and updated using this installer. Otherwise, you have to reboot the machines and select the updates etc. This installs in com mode

I can't comment on how that program works since I never used it.

You could install the MSU files to the PC from the pendrive.
