back in the day with windows xp updates I used to run windows update on a pc then after the download portion was complete i would grab the contents of c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ folder. I would then take these files to another computer that had not run windows update yet and put them into C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\ on that new computer. Then you could run windows update on that new computer and it would skip through the download process very quickly as it realised it already had a copy of the update downloaded. Does this method not work anymore?

thanks
Chris

Not since they started using the permanent copy of the Package Installer for Windows.

Put them all in a folder and create a batch file with this content in the same folder...

for %%a in (*.exe) do (
start /wait %%a /quiet /norestart /nobackup )
pause

Then run the batch file and reboot when it's done. You may or may not want the /nobackup switch.
