Windows 7: Hey what happened to the /nobackup switch?

Hey what happened to the /nobackup switch?

I prefer to download & install security updates manually for both XP and win7 x64.

In XP, I can use the /nobackup switch like so
-> C:\kbblablabla.exe /nobackup /norestart

Well in win7 the updates are in .MSU files, and wusa.exe doesn't seem to accept the switch anymore. Is it really gone in win7?

Welcome

This tut will show you how to install manually.

Incidentally, that is the way to go. When you do install, do only one or two at a time to avoid conflicts, when several require a restart.
