Windows 7: Download W7 Update

16 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise x86
Download W7 Update

Before i begin i have used the search tool on this site.

Is there any way you can download the latest Windows 7 updates as an actual file? Rather than "Check for updates". I currently get an error on a few machines and it would be easier to just go around and install the updates from a file... And if so, would it be possible from a Microsoft website? I've searched for sometime and i cannot find any such thing.

Again, sorry if this is a silly question.. but it has been plaguing my mind for a while now.

Thank you in advance.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 - x64 [Non-UEFI Boot]

You can easily search the hardware ID for up to date drivers on the Microsoft Catalogue site, in the windows 7 "Device Manager".

ex: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_2929&SUBSYS_022A1025, will display you all results.
