Windows 7: how to (offline) update W7 (2016 convenience rollup already installed)

how to (offline) update W7 (2016 convenience rollup already installed)

What's the best way to do an offline update in Windows 7 Professional SP1 (OEM) with the convenience rollup 2016 already installed?

I used the WSUS app to download the updates and ended up with +200 files, but I'm sure I don't need all of them. So, how can I spot what updates do I need?

I'm pretty new to W7 so any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

A quick, safe and easy way to update is to use DISM++!

DISM++ - Basic Overview

DISM++ is a FREE implementation tool that has the ability to perform Windows Updates [WU]. Some of the advantages [but not all] are:

[1] The GUI is very easy to understand and use.
[2] It is much faster than M$’s WU because it uses a different engine.
[3] It downloads the latest WU DB from the M$ servers, scans your OS, and then lists the updates available.
[4] It doesn’t install superseded updates like M$ does.
[5] It gives you the option of what you want to install.
[6] The pre-ticked updates are what is recommended and are similar to the WU critical and recommended updates. The un-ticked updates are similar to the WU optional updates.

[7] It warns you if an update:
  • Includes telemetry.
  • Has known issues with certain hardware.
  • Needs exclusive access.
  • Is suspect.
  • Your OS doesn't need it.
  • Has any other known issues.
[8] It doesn’t require re-booting between updates.
[9] It can be used to either update an install.wim image OFFLINE, or to update the LIVE OS.

I hope this helps!

Hi, Paul Black.

Didn't know about this app, thanks for the heads up. However, since WSUS already downloaded all the update files to my computer, is there a way to do the necessary updates without relying on another 3rd party program?

I'm thinking about just installing all the updates pos-2016 rollup, since it has all updates before April 2016. Does it make sense?

Hi ADC,

The below is the old, laborious and obsolete way of updating the OS after a clean install.

[1] - KB3020369 - Servicing Stack Update - April 2015.
[2] - KB3125574 - Convenience Rollup Package - May 2016.
[3] - KB3172605 - Functional Update Rollup [THIS ONE ISIMPORTANT] - July 2016.
[4] - KB3179573 - Functional Update Rollup - August 2016.
[5] - Run WU [Windows Update] to get the rest of the updates.

I am assuming from the above that you have downloaded the updates using WSUS but have not yet installed them, is that correct?

I don't quite follow what you are asking!

DISM++ will only download the WU's needed for your OS.

I hope this helps!

Correct. I only downloaded them. At this moment, have only the 2016 convenience rollup (and it's prerequisite updates) effectively installed.

Yeah, that's exactly what I need! But will it leave the files in a folder for me to backup them?

And I'm assuming DISM++ will download everything again, right?

Hey, Paul.

I think I'm better off trying the app and see what happens. Will be back here after.

Thanks again for your support and patience.

Hi ADC,

[1] If you decide to use DISM++, then it is best to run the DISM++ Windows Updates a couple of times to make sure you get ALL the updates that are needed. DON’T install ANY of the ORANGE updates though.
[2] It can also install the required .NET Framework updates.
[3] Run WU to see what other updates are available, if any.

I hope this helps!

If you backup your system it's backed-up plus all the data you added.

I've installed DISM++ (awesome app btw) and it already un-checked the orange updates. Now, there are some white updates un-checked as well. Is it normal?
