Post-RTM Updates for Windows 7 (Discontinued)

144 posts in this topic

If my system language is Simple Chinese,can I use this ULZ?

All updates for Windows 7 are Language Neutral which means that all updates that MS makes for Win7 will work with any language. So yes you can use this ULZ.

How can I create a list? I was thinking of creating a list for office 2007 But I dont know where to start.

Edit: I found a program to do this Here and I found out how to package the update list here but the program doesn't seem to work anymore. WUD just spits out errors when trying to load the update list.

The update list is malformed. there are multiple root elements. Line 9, Position 2. (X2)

The update list is malformed. Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: Line 22 Position 10.

Would you be kind enough to give me the layout of an update list?

Thanks :)

Here's the layout i use for my UL's below:-

<update id="" category="" publishdate="" article="http://support.microsoft.com/kb/kb">
<title></title>
<description></description>
<filename></filename>
<url></url>
</update>

As for packaging the UL, just zip them up with either the built-in windows zip app or 7-zip, then rename the file extension from .zip to .ulz, if you still get errors it means you've made a mistake somewhere, and i wish you luck with your new UL.:)

Append .xml to your list's name and drag it into Firefox. It should show you the exact line that's causing the problem.

Just one thing, i didn't make the app, Jcarle did, so please thank him for making this very useful program. As for you question, i believe i've already answered it here.

I was wondering where you get the download links from. I have noticed that you have not included a few updates and I wanted to add them to the download list.

These are kb976002 (this is the EU update only), the 4 updates for Virtual PC and xp mode KB958559, KB977206, KB977632 and WindowsXPMode_en-us, and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 (KB982670).

I get the download links from the MS download site.

1. Update KB976002 is not included because not everyone lives in the EU, and i have no plans to include the update anytime soon.

2. I used to include XP mode and VPC and it's updates in my list, but i decided to axe them as it has limited capabilities compared to other vm's.

3. While i do provide updates for .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 for Windows 7, currently i don't for other versions, but now that you've brought this up i will look to include .NET Framework 4 in the near future.

Thanks for the information. I thought the 976002 updated wouldn't be included.

coucou, below is weblink to a winxp update list for both x86 and x64 done by klui, they are not up to date, but they do work.

Let me know what else you think should be included. I'm too lazy to create new distributions for the ASP.net out-of-band update. I've noted the entries and will include it after this coming Tuesday's large patch bundle.

You could include optional updates like, Windows Live Essentials 2009 for XP x86, DirectX Update, MS Security Essentials 1.0, and other free stuff that MS offers that will work with XP x86 and x64.

I've had a look at your list both x86 and x64 and it's nicely organised but, you do need to keep your UL's up to date as much as possible, and good luck with next week's mega patch tuesday.

You could include optional updates like ... DirectX Update

I did fresh install and DirectX was at 9.0c. I started with XPSP3 x86 and XPSP2 x64 and presume people who start from there would get 9.0c.

Any positives came from the original authors' work.

No, what i mean is that you could include the DirectX Runtimes Redistributable update which has a new version released every 3 or 4 months, here's the weblink: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=3b170b25-abab-4bc3-ae91-50ceb6d8fa8d

Description from MS and i quote:

Microsoft DirectX is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements such as full-color graphics, video, 3D animation, and rich audio. DirectX includes security and performance updates, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX APIs.

I don't play games and Microsoft Update doesn't provide DirectX updates so I didn't know about this distribution. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks again for your latest updates. :thumbup

Thanks, this was by far the most updates i've ever seen, so by the time i finished, my brain was hurting. Only next day to find out that i had missed an update, so had to include that as well, just hope that next month's patch tuesday will have less updates to deal with.:)
