Is there a way to download KB2952664 directly?

Before you say no, I needed to also download KB3035583 and i looked all over and finally found a post were this guy Urthboundmisfit from these forums got a direct d/l link from Windows Update log for 32-bit and it worked for me, I need this because both of those updates dont pop up, and when i check for updates it doesn't do anything new, and yes this is genuine windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

Here's how I got it to work. I saved the update file with a simpler name, I called it 2952664.msu. Then opened up a command prompt as administrator. And used then just navigate to the directory you saved the file in and run the wusa executable (Windows Stand Alone Installer).

This is how you would type it into a command prompt:

wusa.exe 2952664.msu

KB2952664 is in todays updates, it was one of the upgrades for Windows 10 which I thought had ended last month.

If you disconnect your Internet connection before trying to run the standalone installer, it shouldn't hang on "Searching for updates on this computer". Always works for me.

That's one of the telemetry updates. Even though in the description it states it's related to the 10 upgrade, it is still being installed on systems. I don't think that update will go away even after the free upgrade expired.

They've even integrated the Windows 8.1 equivalent (KB2976978) into the latest 8.1 ISOs, so I don't think they have any intention of ever removing them.
