Hi there!

Excellent work, simply awesome. :)

Why didn't you suggest this earlier, or was working on it........

Did as before, installed the 3, last one took a while, total in size was approx 1.7 GB.

Than activated online and ran check for updates, displays approx 40 vs 172 important and 30 odd optional, attaching for your expert thoughts.

Should I install the Important in one go......and thoughts about Optional ones?

Thanks again, hoping to hear your expert views after viewing the attachments.

Finding a cure for Zika was easy but this is simply too good, thanks to you. :)

You are one W7 Guru!


Edit:

1. In Optional the ones for W10 should be excluded and the rest installed.......already did install the Nvidia etc ones?

2. Net framework 4.5.2 should be installed from here, or from the standalone installer?

3. Should 40 Important be installed before net framework?

Hi,

Installed all Important 41 in one go, only 2 failed, on reboot they got installed successfully.

Now on check for updates, get an error.

Am posting all for your expert comments.

Thanks.

Hi,

It was a MS server issue, error disappeared, 6 new important updates appeared that got installed in 1 go with none failed.

Now have none Imp, only Optional 29.....leaving the 10 ones, in which order would you recommend........4.5.2 from here or from a MS link?

Thanks.

Hi,
Interesting it shows both net frameworks there :)
It should only show net 4.6.1 which I've just installed on all my machines so if you want go ahead and install it it's been out for a while now and should be fine to have

I had a home group sharing issue my Acer could see and access my other 2 machine but neither of my other machines could see my Acer
So I sort of threw the kitchen sink at it
But anyway net 4.6.1 should be fine but after the Important ones

Hi,

You mean it shouldn't show 4.5.2 ONLY 4.6.1, you had 4.5.2 inserted in the update?

Which would you recommend?

IF I install 4.5.2 can I later go to 4.6.1 and vice versa?

Thanks.

Hi,
Yes
If you want to install net 4.5.2 and you already have net 4.6.1 installed you have to go to uninstall a program and uninstall net 4.6.1 first before you can install net 4.5.2

If you have net 4.5.2 you can install net 4.6.1 through the windows update system at any time.

I'd just go ahead and install net 4.6.1 so we're on the same page still :)

As you recommend, should I install 4.6.1 from Windows Update or any MS link that you could post.

Thanks again.


A query: If one has 4.5.2 can install 4.6.1 over it simple, but 4.5.2 has its own important updates too, wouldn't they interfere or need to uninstalled?
