Optional Language Updates

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a registry setting or other tweak to hide the optional language updates by default in Windows Update?

In addition, how about unattended microsoft update activation? Preferably without an internet connection

Hey dudes,

Do a clean install, make sure all updates are installed, hide your languagepacks and other updates you want to hide then:


2. go to c:\windows\

3. copy the whole directory softwaredistribution to another location

4. delete the dir downloads in softwareditstribution.

5 put your softwaredistribution folder in your install.wim c:\windows

Has anyone found the CAB file for Microsoft Update so that it can be integrated into the WIM? A link would be great

You should look for a installer, not a cab file. WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe

WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe does NOT include Microsoft Update...it still requires that the user navigates to Microsoft Update and install the new settings

no s***, WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe is only a update for your windowsupdate engine.

To migrate/integrate windowsupdate settings like receiving updates for windows and other microsoft product or hiding languagepacks you should copy softwaredistribution into your install.wim image as I said before :whistle:

And hell yeah - it works.

you tried? :rolleyes: yu'd

Good luck :thumbup
