Downloading Windows updates

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

I have tried to download the windows updates published so far to prepare my version of windows, but I haven't been able to find them: on the download centre, all I see are pre-beta updates.

Could you tell me where I can find the updates for windows 7, elsewhere than on the windows update website?

Thanks

Gilou

Right now, I am under win XP.

Is that why I cannot find the updates on the microsoft download centre (which is not the windows update site)?

Is there any loophole?

Search microsoft.com with the KB numbers for each update you want to download, then manually download each one.

I'm not sure you can do it from XP because some of the updates require you to run the GenuineCheck tool in order to get them. No idea if codes returned from XP will work for grabbing Win7 updates.

I did this from Win7 for the same purpose and didn't have any problems.

URL REMOVED you'll find restricted hotfixes not deployed through the update system. Edited by cluberti
Linkinng to files redistributed and not on Microsoft's site. Microsoft does not allow redistribution of any of their files, including updates. Violation of rule 1b.

There's currently no Win7 update lists for it though.

Read my post fully - I linked to a UL created by MrJinJe in the WUD section of these forums.
