Post-RTM Updates for Windows 7 (Discontinued)

Yes you can extract the files into a cab file which can be used to integrate into install DVD, open cmd (using admin rights first) type in below:-

Use IE9 as an example

IE9-Windows7-x64-enu.exe /x:c:\

This will extract all the files into either a msu or cab file.

Your method works great.

I just extracted the latest win7 SP1: windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe

to a folder I named "extracted"

Run

cmd

C:Users\Admin>cd desktop

C:Users\Admin\Desktop>windows6.1-KB967932-X64.exe /x:c:/extracted

Inside the extracted folder was a huge bunch of files & folders including x2 .cab files

windows6.1-KB976902-X64.cab 10.2mb

windows6.1-KB976932-X64.cab 902mb

Unfortunately 7Customizer does not allow me to insert cab files to the updates list

only .msu files

How do I convert cabs to msu files?

Cheers.

You cannot convert a .cab file to a .msu file because:-

1) You could rename it to msu, but there is no info inside the file that will tell windows what to do with the update.

2) You would not be able to integrate sp1 cab file into your windows image, because MS has disabled the slipstreaming part of the service pack, regardless of what software you use to integrate.

Your best bet is to download an MS integrated sp1 iso image of Windows 7, just google and you find the iso your looking for. (sorry i can't provide any more info or weblinks on this cause it would be in violation of the rules here.)

Please, next time if you've got sp1 questions, ask them in my sp1 thread and not this thread, now to your answers:-

1) As far as i know, there is no new extra updates for sp1

2) IE9 final is only in the sp1 ULZ's..

3) SP1 RTM Langpacks are available in my SP1 ULZ's.

ULZ turkish for windows 7 sp1?

You should've asked this in the sp1 thread, even then there is no need for multiple ULZ's due to nearly all updates being langauge neutral.
