I've been working on downloading offline updates and have just about gotten where I want to go with the project. The only other thing that confuses me a little is locating some updated things that seem to be laying outside of what Windows/Microsoft Update presents which gets updated. I'm looking to automate that.
1) Microsoft Security Essentials definition updates show up in Microsoft Update, *but* they are delta/difference files which don't do too well if you want to offline update a fresh copy of MSE. That's fine to a point, but if you wanted the full offline update you would have to download it. I do have two links (32-bit - http://go.microsoft....342&clcid=0x409 64-bit - http://go.microsoft....341&clcid=0x409 ), but does the latest version always show up there? What does the 0x409 mean? Does that change, and for what reason?
2) Windows Update Agent doesn't ever show up in the site results, but gets updated. I know what they say about downloading the CAB to get the URL, but I have a link like the ones above for this. Same question: Would I always find the most updated version there? Probably the only way to check for a new version I guess is to get the CAB file and process it?
Also, are there any other files like this that I'm not thinking of?
Outside of that, what are PSF files and why would I want them?
