Post-SP1 updates for Windows 7 (SOON TO BE UPDATED!)

I just downloaded your lists, x86 one works OK, but x64 list is causing an error in Windows Updates Downloader:


System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: El índice y la longitud deben hacer referencia a una ubicación en la cadena.
Nombre del parámetro: length
en System.String.InternalSubStringWithChecks(Int32 startIndex, Int32 length, Boolean fAlwaysCopy)
en WUD.UpdateListManager.Load(String filename)
en WUD.UpdateListManager.Load(Int32 index)
en WUD.formMain.LoadUpdateList()
en WUD.formMain.comboUpdateLists_SelectedIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
en System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox.OnSelectedIndexChanged(EventArgs e)
en System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox.set_SelectedIndex(Int32 value)
en WUD.formMain.formMain_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)

Got that too. Looks like the x64 update file has a problem.

Removing this section fixed it

<update id="KB" category="0" publishdate="2013/" article="http://support.microsoft.com/kb/">

<title>Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7 SP1 x64 Edition (KB)</title>

<description>Security issues have been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise a computer running Microsoft Internet Explorer and gain control over it.</description>

<filename>IE10-Windows6.1-KB-x64.msu</filename>

<url></url>

</update>

It was also saved in ANSI format and not utf-8

You are correct, i will upload new lists on patch tuesday with them in utf-8 format. As for the section described above, that's in my list, i'm just getting ready for the first updates for IE10 that's all.

After a bit more testing it is publishdate="2013/" that is causing WUD to crash when it reads the file. I assume it needs a valid date.

Downloaded your latest x86 list and it works flawlessly, thanks a million. A few questions:

You make available .Net Framework 4.5 under 'Optional updates', why not also the 3 important and 1 recommended fixes for it?

NDP-KB2737083 NDP-KB2742613 NDP-KB2789648 NDP-KB2750147

Fix KB2503665 is integratable and asked for by Win7 and yet it's not in your list nor in WUD's list.

Microsoft Security Essentials 4.2.223.1 appears twice in your list: 'MS Security Products' (not downloading) and 'Pre-realease Software' (downloading OK).

Thanks Again, Gideon.

1. I include the .net 4.5 installer, but i have no plans to include it's updates!

2. It will be in the next update list, which will be on Patch Tesday.

3. They are both the same, but MS still continues with testing future builds of MSE. Which is why both builds are included in the list.

I DLed the latest W7 x64 list and noticed the KB2798897 (rvkroots.exe). It was not offered to me by Windows Update. How did you learn about it and how am I expected to learn about it? BTW, there is some chatter about rvkroots.exe changing all the friendly names in the Untrusted Certificates folder to <none> - it did on my system. Thanks and enjoy, John.

I get my info from 2 MS sources here and here and there are some certs being moved to untrusted folder, cause they can be a security risk.

steven4554, thanks for your reply. I do not understand why MS would not release this as an update. Thanks and enjoy, John.

steven4554, I noticed you added KB2647753-v4 to your latest list (3-12-2013). This raises the question of how do you determine the URL for the Windows Catalog updates? Thanks and enjoy, John.

Here are two UL's that will let you download the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 with updates/drivers up to: 12th March 2013!

Please note - you can also download the Windows 7 SP1 ULZ's from the WUD website!

system: Windows 7 SP1 x86

updates: 2013-03-12 (or latter)

I'm a little bit confused - ulz files from you are different from ulz files at windowsupdatesdownloader.com.

your ulz: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=36393

wud ulz: http://www.windowsupdatesdownloader.com/download.ashx?type=ul&id=213

I've found the following differences:

(that is files in your ulz that are not in wud ulz

and files in wud ulz that are not in your ulz)

1. Security Updates

your ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2503665-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2532531-x86.msu

wud ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2618451-x86.msu

2. Non-Security Updates

your ulz:

rvkroots.exe

Windows6.1-KB2633952-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2647753-v4-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2718704-x86.msu

wud ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2534366-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2639308-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2641690-x64.msu

Windows6.1-KB2647753-v2-x86.msu

Windows6.1-KB2762895-x86.msu

Which ULZ is "more better" - your or that from windowsupdatesdownloader site? :)

I maintain update packs for Win7 SP1 so I have checked the KB against my pack:

1. Security Updates

your ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2503665-x86.msu <-- needed

Windows6.1-KB2532531-x86.msu <-- needed

wud ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2618451-x86.msu <-- not needed

2. Non-Security Updates

your ulz:

rvkroots.exe <-- needed (can't be integrated, must be installed at RunOnce)

Windows6.1-KB2633952-x86.msu <-- not needed

Windows6.1-KB2647753-v4-x86.msu <-- needed

Windows6.1-KB2718704-x86.msu <-- needed

wud ulz:

Windows6.1-KB2534366-x86.msu <-- not needed

Windows6.1-KB2639308-x86.msu <-- not needed

Windows6.1-KB2641690-x64.msu <-- not needed (and it's a 64 bits update)

Windows6.1-KB2647753-v2-x86.msu <-- not needed (superseded by v4 )

Windows6.1-KB2762895-x86.msu <-- not needed

Only one KB not needed in steven4554's UL vs 6 non needed KB and at least 5 missing KB for the other UL.

So, based to this comparison, johnhc steven4554's UL is far better, but not perfect (the goal here is to have zero superseded updates and zero updates on Windows Update)

mooms, I was surprised to see my userid in your post. I do not have an update list that I publish. You must have my ID confused with someone else. Enjoy, John.

The ULZ on WUD site don't include third party programs like Adobe Flash Player or Display Drivers, etc...

And I get the direct download links on MS Update Catalog site by viewing the source of the webpage after downloading the update(s)

Indeed, sorry for the error, should be "steven4554's UL" of course.

And I get the direct download links on MS Update Catalog site by viewing the source of the webpage after downloading the update(s)

So why the differences in the KB ?

There shouldn't be any difference, why have I missed some updates or superseded ones that shouldn't be there?

Hi Steven4554, for windows7 x86 update KB2607047 is in your non-security group. This update does not integrate using Win toolkit nor is Windows7 asking for it post installation.

Sounds to me like an optional update for certain installations only.

From microsoft:

"You should install this update on any Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has the DFS Replication role enabled or on any Windows 7 client that has the Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) package installed for remotely managing a DFSR server."

Regards, Gideon.

Jakson, Mooms, Just use Steven4554s' list and don't sweat the details, your Win7 Inatallaion will be happy. The only kb's I'm adding that's not in his list are 2 IE9 updates and kb971033 (putting them in a separate folder).

Post installation, It only needs kb2533553, IE10 and dotnet 4 client.

Many thanks for keeping this updated, it really is a massive help!

One very minor issue: your link to KB947821 is broken for both the x86 and X64 lists. I think it's because your lists still point to V25 of the update and V26 is now the latest version. It's available here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

x86 - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=167366 / http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3132

X64 - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=183286 / http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20858

JonnyT, No broken link here, Maybe Steven fixed the link after reading your comment.

Excellent, very quick work!

Sorry to report another (minor, slightly nit-picky) problem with the x86 Update List. There are at least four updates that are downloading the correct -x86 versions, but the filename is renaming them as -X64! These are:

Windows6.1-KB2813347-x64.msu

Windows6.1-KB2813170-x64.msu

Windows6.1-KB2808735-x64.msu

Windows6.1-KB2823324-x64.msu
