    Why can't Microsoft design a software, which could do an offline update.

    eg. A software which could install the entire patches and microsoft fix, in
    a specific folder which you have save them on.

    This would be helpfull and reduce time for people / users to install their
    patches without using the net for updates.
    Some poeple need this software as it is usefull for manual updating and
    reduce time if they haven't got their internet setup.

    Plz reply, this issue is urgent and important.

    More info's through this link.

    The name of the software is not the type which I was looking for. But, it
    doesn't do the job as I was expected!!

  5. Download them each month - the standalone updates - and store them in a safe
    place (not the same drive as you have Windows installed on, perhaps write
    them to a CD-RW..)

    One site has a decently updated list:
    http://www.msfn.org/board/HOTFIXES_Win2000_SP4_WinXP_SP2_Win200_t86450.html
    Scroll down tothe part labeled:
    "MS WINDOWS XP PRO SP2 - (##)"

    You can order Windows XP Service Pack 2 on CD
    http://snipurl.com/d41v

    There are tools out there that can be used to get what you will need...
    Example:
    http://wud.jcarle.com/

    Each month Microsoft releases that month's updates in ISO format - but they
    *do not* go back as far as you might need.
    January 2006-current
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/913086

    That would be one CD per month since January 2006.

    Direct Download of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP
    http://snipurl.com/8bqy

    You can see the critical (security and other) patches released for a given
    month using the following:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms##-***.mspx

    At the end of this line you see "ms##-***.mspx" .. If you simply replace ##
    with the two-digit year and the *** with the three character month
    abbreviation, you will see the list of "critical" and "important" patches
    for that month (since it only happens once a month usually, if you check by
    the second Tuesday (wait until afternoon) of each month - you should be
    fine) - note that future months will not work.

    As an example...

    December 2004's patches..
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04-dec.mspx

    March 2005's patches..
    None released.. so that one will fail...

    May 2006's patches..
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms06-may.mspx

    January 2007's patches..
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms07-jan.mspx

    Once you get on the page with each month's list of patches.. You can go to
    the related KB articles and grab the appropriate files from there.


    Here's a list through about April of this year - choose to go
    to the IT Professional link if given the option.

    You are right, shavlik did it.


    hfnetchk do it

    hfnetchk do it

    hfnetchk do it

    hfnetchk do it, you can download patch when you are connected and install in
    other sites, create group and organize as you want. So, what did you
    expected???

    You're very helpfull! But, that is not the the subject which everyone was
    looking for!!
    I'll say this once more....but you got to understand.

    1.] Microsoft needs to design a software which could be used to install
    multiple patches and updates in one click, instead of installing each patches
    manually!

    2.] The software needs to have a configuration which we could scroll through
    our
    hard -drive, and select a folder to install all of the patches.

    *All of the patches which we had downloaded from "microsoft.com" and saved
    to our specific folder in our HARD-DRIVE!!

    Get the drift microsoft???

    3.] Microsoft is now bundle with patches and we need a backup to update them
    all with a software and a simple click!! All of the patches and update which
    we had download...walla!!
    All install with a click!!

    *This is not like the online update list!!*

    4.] All of us would like to make our computer safe and reduce risk before
    going online!!
    That is why we need a software which could help us to install multiple
    patches with a click!!

    Please understand me microsoft!! We need this type of software!!!

  8. Why?
    Why does Microsoft *need* to do this?
    I have batch scripts that do that - pointed you to places to get them. Why
    does *Microsoft* need to do this?
    Go ahead - save them to your hard disk drive. You realize Automatic
    Updates (when enabled) saves the files to the Software Distribution folder
    and then - with one click - you can install them all. Or with a few clicks
    in the proper configuration, you can choose the ones you want to install,
    deselect those you don't - and then one-click install.
    Again - why does Microsoft *need* to do this? This does not seem like a
    Microsoft problem - but a 'your problem' deal. I am able and do what you
    have said with simple batch language. Another batch script I have
    integrates all the patches it can into the installation media so I can burn
    a new copy. The directions on doing this is out there. When SP3 comes
    out - you will have a single file encompassing all the previous patches up
    until its release (or somewhat close to it.) Later - when more patches are
    released - it will be back to many multiple - however - using WSUS or
    Automatci updates or a little time and effort - or even a third party
    product and a script you can likely find using Google - you get what you
    need.
    Why does Microsoft *need* to do this? Most users do not have this need.
    Corporations likely use internal methods (WSUS, etc) and most regular users
    utilize automatic updates. Why does Microsoft need to do something that
    seems to satisfy only one person thus far?
    Automatic Updates. If you have your firewall turned on and have just
    freshly installed your Windows XP SP2 machine - when you get on the internet
    and have Automatic updates enabled - you will - after the download takes
    place - have your 'one click'. Your firewall protects you. If you don't
    want that - integrate the patches into your installation media so that after
    you install - most of the patching is already done. Not enough? Write a
    script to install the patches from a given directory. Batch, VBScript or
    beyond is capable of that. You could have it part of the install process so
    that it finishing installing using your integrated media and then runs a
    script at the end to install all the updates that could not be integrated
    into the installation media.
    Who is *we*? Why does Microsoft *need* to do this?

    I have installed several systems this week alone - I didn't need that
    ability. Didn't even think about it beyond reading your post over the last
    5+ years of installing Windows XP. I did write scripts to install the
    updates I knew I needed to in succession pre-sp2. After SP2 - more of the
    individual updates were able to be integrated directly into my installation
    media - meaning I had very little to do after the install and then - I
    usually just let Automatic Updates handle it - even if I did it where they
    downloaded and allowed me to choose what/when to install.

    What is this pressing need? Who is the we you speak of? Why do you think
    it is needed?

    I really cannot see the purpose - I understand what you are asking for - but
    I cannot see this *need* - help me out and explain why this is needed over
    all the other solutions available to people?

    Me: Many people from different country have different connection speed. Some
    will put their machine on for 2 days...just to get their PC updated with the
    latest fix. However, lots of users got their pc crashed, due to size and
    stacks of updates being made by Microsoft Corp. Lucky for me...I've got
    broadband!
    But, I'm speaking to you because, I would like to help the other users
    complete their task "while on the go."

    A simple small tools which could be extracted to your hard-drive and it can
    be use to install the patches and hotfix in a specific folder, just to reduce
    time and installation restart. A small software that could group all of the
    patches and install them with a click of a button. With your knowledge on the
    "write scripts" you could design a portable software / tool to install all of
    the manual downloaded patches and hotfix in the specific folder which we
    normally saved them on.

    Edit: I'll design a sketch, just to make it clear and easy for you to
    understand.
    It just something simple and portable which we can carry them in our USB
    stick.

    So please help us! We are the ones who brought your windows XP and
    Vista...why don't you give us the service which we need for our PC???

    Note: I'm a threats analyzer. But, I'm a mechanic and a PC repair guy.
    So...please do this for the entire nation...for your own country!

    Best regards
