A long time ago (2008) I've created two tools for Windows XP for integrate Windows Updates into XPCD



And now, I present you my new creation


Since there was no SP2 for Windows Seven yet i started my own Project named WindowsPatchLoader.
I know there are a couple of tools that do the same job. BUT i wanted my own tool.
I wanted just "re-invent the wheel". ;)

All Updates you download are from Microsoft.

[Windows Update Method]
windowsupdate method is like Windows Update and it's always up-to-date,
depends which Microsoft Software/Update you are currently installed.
I'm getting the Updates/Urls from Windows Update.
Hotfixes are not stored anywhere.

[Other Update Method (from Wsusscn2.cab]

There is also an alternate method to getting Updates for other systems while i am not able
to scan other systems than installed one.
Wherein i used text-files on my server to save all urls from wsusscn2.cab.
All urls are also from Microsoft. These files are updated weekly.
This Method was my first idea before beginning to write this tool.
As well as Windows Update too hotfixes are not stored anywhere.

But i do not recommend this Method while wsusscn2.cab does not contains all Updates.
There are only "critical" and "security relevant" updates.

I get this when I click on Search Updates > Windows Updates or Search Updates > Superseded Updates...


This is on XP. The rest of the functions seem to work fine on XP. It has XP listed in the menus so I presume it can be used with that OS.

Haven't tested on W7 yet.
