Post-RTM Updates for Windows 7 (Discontinued)

144 posts in this topic

Please note: Downloads for Post-RTM updates for Windows 7 are now gone, and i've discontinued support for this version! If you wish to keep on getting updates for Windows 7, i'd recommend you upgrade to SP1.

This is a redist of Microsoft files, from non-Microsoft server locations. As per rule 1.b, I've removed the links. Please follow the rules - this is your only warning on this.

Can someone explain to me how this works? I have the UL files now and they are downloading the updates for Win7 (thanks), but does that list of available updates get updated automatically as MS release updates or do I need to download an updated UL every now and then?

I update the lists whenever an update gets released by MS, (though for win7 UL's any updates released since my last update will be included in the next one, when MS releases their updates on patch tuesday!) as i always check the MS site, you will need to download any UL's everytime when they've been updated.

Ah, OK so there is no way to have the updates downloadable when they are made available, i.e. this morning my PC says there are new updates available... but the UL I have has not changed (as per your info in first post).

Is there other options to download updates when they are available and have that list auto check for new updates every now and then?

Sorry if my Q's seem dumb, just trying to work out how I can download the updates to one PC and then put them onto a file server here so I can add those updates to the other 5 PC's - save me download bandwidth as I have limited bandwidth available.

Consider something like WSUS then - WSUS 3.0 SP2 on a Windows Server will act as a WU point and download/cache updates, you approve the updates to be downloaded and made available to clients from WSUS based on the options you configure, and then you point your machines at the WSUS server instead of WU for updates.

WUD is something more useful to folks who need to cache updates for slipstreaming into images, or personal machine use, etc - when you start getting into having multiple machines and desiring control over updates, caching, etc, you need to look for something designed more for that (like WSUS is).

How do I use the ULZ files?

I would like to have all the updates integrated to my Win7 install disk.

Install WUD 2.50 then double click ULZ.

want more details, read the stickies here.

Afterwards, (once you've downloaded them all), you will need to integrate them (into your Install.wim) using DISM or DISM Tool™

I have downloaded Build 998 of the downloader and am asked to download 999, but it does not take me to the link ????

I am a fairly old man, fairly new to computers, so please be patient.

The download list from steven 4554 is a list without any so-called "risky downloads" that might harm my computer, as described on the MyDigitalLife Forum, I assume? Thanks Steven, seems to be great work, but where is that Build 999, does it exist?

It's a bug in WUD build 998 that makes it think that there is a build 999, but there is not, though build 1000 is available, but you will get the same results.

My advise would be to disable WUD checking for updates to stop it nagging you to download the so-called build 999.

Here's a link to a picture showing how to disable checking for updates in WUD:-

Thanks I will do that, (one minute later:) worked perfectly.

I am still not clear about where to check for latest list of the non-harmful Windows 7 updates.

I only got this computer with 7 about a week ago, very first thing I did, I installed the updates from MS, except for the one I knew might cause a problem. How do I proceed from now on? The ones from May's Tuesday for example...

I have installed the latest of your lists and can simply download all of it, it will select by itself what is not already there?
