1. Put the patch in the same directory as UpdatePack7R2-19.11.15.exe.

2. Run the patch and it creates UpdatePack7R2-19.11.18.exe.

3. Then open cmd prompt and type:

path_to_UpdatePack7R2-19.11.18.exe /ie11 /WimFile="path_to_Install.wim" /Index=3
If you don't want ie11, then omit the switch like this:
path_to_UpdatePack7R2-19.11.18.exe /WimFile="path_to_Install.wim" /Index=3

index=2 is home premium
index=3 is pro
index=4 is ultimate



Or you can use my batch file to do the job for you.
Update your Win 7 installation media

If you already have the updatepack, copy it next to the 7updater.cmd

The process seems pretty simple. As to 'install.wim'. Do I need to extract that from my Win 7 SP1 iso or does the update pack find it on the system it's run from?

To update a Win 7 installation disk you must extract all files and folders from a iso (or copy from your DVD) to a folder on your computer. Let's assume you have:
Win 7 iso extracted files on C:\Win7Inst
UpdatePack7R2-19.11.15.exe on C:\Update

Win 7 64 bits Installation disk has the 4 brands:
index=1 is Home
index=2 is Home Premium
index=3 is Pro
index=4 is Ultimate

Let's say you want to add the Simplix updates to Pro
The CMD code would be:

C:\Update\UpdatePack7R2-19.11.15.exe /ie11 /WimFile=C:\Win7Inst\sources\Install.wim /Index=3
Or
C:\Update\UpdatePack7R2-19.11.15.exe /WimFile=C:\Win7Inst\sources\Install.wim /Index=3

As there will be more updates till Jan 20, I would only slipstream after last Simplix update.

Thank you, SIW2 and Megahertz07. It seems very straight-forward. I haven't had time thus far, but will soon pick out and ourder hardware to upgrade a couple of systems here, then I'll do the installations. Y'all's concise help is much appreciated!

minor correction - index1 should be "Home Basic" [helps to be accurate]


the Win7 32bit/x86 ISO has 5 editions/indexes instead of 4 which includes Starter and the starter edition is 32bit only

My Win 7 SP1 ISOs were DLed in 2013. Will the index=version still apply?

Im doing a clean install of Windows 7 on a new HDD.
I already have Window 7 and SP1 installed & ready to install KB3125574.

Do I still need to install KB3020369, KB3125574 and KB3172605 as mentioned in the first posting, or does some newer Servicing Stack Update take the place of these?

It also indicates to install in sequence: kb3179573, KB947821, & KB2813347. Is this still required, or just run the normal Windows Updates? IOW will these be superceded by newer versions?

Regarding the Servicing Stack Updates. Do all of them need to be installed in sequence as the normal updates are being installed? Or will installing just the latest Servicing Stack Update from the beginning handle the requirements of all the previous ones?

Thanks for any advice
