Am no Computer guru nor Programmer Geek. Please please can anyone write me a batch script for installing win 7 updates manually from a folder i have on hard disk.This is what i want to be exact.
I have windows updates files i have been downloading from catalog.update.microsoft.com. in a folder on Drive D of my Laptop. now every time there is an update alert by windows 7 update agent, i go to catalog.update.microsoft.com and download the updates to my folder. This way i dont have to download the same updates when i want to update my PC desktop running widows 7.
So i humbly ask this great community to help me out to accomplish this by giving me a batch script which i can paste on Notepad and save it as a .bat file so when i double click my .bat file i will install my updates silently on the target system.
I want a batch script to find the msu's file in a folder and install them silently. It should install the the first update till finnish before installing the second one and so forth.
This is what i've been doing.
1. open cmd prompt and i type "DIR *.* /B >My folder name.bat (eg i have a folder for Apr 2011 updates named 12 Apr 11 Updates win 7) so i type "DIR *.* /B >12apr11upadteswin7.BAT" at the cmd prompt. This will give me all the file names of the msu's in a text file.
2. Then i manually replace .msu with .msu /quiet /norestart Eg. AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2482017-x64_95006a2b965e8566d8a57600a0c0c53cb7212874.msu changes to AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2482017-x64_95006a2b965e8566d8a57600a0c0c53cb7212874.msu /quiet /norestart
. i do this for all the msu files in that folder.
3. Then i add
echo Installing 12 Apr 2011 Updates...... to be the first and second line of my batch file named 12apr11upadteswin7.BAT. so i have something like this at the end
@echo off echo Installing 12 Apr 2011 Updates...... AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2393802-x64_98de62e1afe597d60acb584552241477315bd33a.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2425227-x64_0749e0e8531479e1de9347fe584e61d43c209c0f.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2454826-v2-x64_1c0a9c5f9fa8a2ffebfc81c3163a46caf077838a.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2467023-x64_7f10b8f14a55877cf2ee67cee41ab758c3a9b376.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2475792-x64_2e8f675625883458482042e128f54167f0193f9b.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2479628-x64_a774713ef62d45373a08d4a7c0acfa18e8ec87c8.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2485376-x64_7082a10a94b6cfffdd28f5f57f02e15a5345f5a7.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2487426-x64_248e8f34492d9ed52236150179313aaf29a544d4.msu /quiet /norestart AMD64-all-windows6.1-kb2482017-x64_95006a2b965e8566d8a57600a0c0c53cb7212874.msu /quiet /norestart
Now i dont want to be finding .msu and replacing with .msu /quiet /norestart manually.
I want a script that will search my folder may be i have subfolders to seach in that too for msu's and install them one by one waiting to finnish installing the first update before installing the second one. i hope i have tried to explain myself clear
Your efforts to help this humble soul of mine will be highly appreciated
