Update Installer

Recommended Posts

The 'Update Installer' lets you integrate cab updates into your currently installed OS, i only use this when i've download an SoLoR update and want it install with QFE/LDR mode on my current install.

Installing Updates


Step 1: Add your CAB/MSU Files

Use the 'Add Files' button to add your cab files

Step 2: Click Start

Once your files have been added, click 'Start' and W7T will start installing the dpdates on your computer.

Step 3: Wait

Wait may take some time to install all the updates, so go for coffee, cup of tea or whatever you prefer. W7T will let you know when it's done, it will also prompt you if a restart is required.

Optional: QFE/LDR Mode

This is disabled by default, but when enabled W7T will install the 'update-bf.mum onto your computer which are experimental updates which don't normally get installed. I use this ALL the time :)

GDR packages contain only security and critical stability issue fixes.

LDR packages contain "other" fixes that have not undergone as extensive testing, and resolve issues that only a fraction of the millions of Windows users might ever encounter.


Uninstalling Updates


Step 1: Press the scan button

This will check which updates are already installed via on your live system.

Step 2: Select the updates you want to remove

Tick the boxes next to the updates your want to remove, sometimes it does help to check updates which are marked as 'superseded' and remove those.

Step 3: Press 'Uninstall' and wait

Now all you have to do is sit back and wait for those obsolete updates to be removed, W7T will update the list once completed.

NOTE: If you use the QFE/LDR option then you don't have to integrate the 'LDR Placeholders'.

      When you download updates via Windows Update, Windows leave a copy of the CAB file into a folder which CAB Retriever lets you copy to a place of your choice or just delete them to save space. The files you decide to copy can be used to integrate into your WIM image.
      A new feature is that it will also scan WindowsUpdate.log for any MSU links which you may want to download.
      NOTE: You can only use CAB Retriever if you have *.cab files available to copy.

      Option 1: Copy Selected
      Using the list, select the files you want to copy. You can also hold the ctrl key to select multiple files. This option will then only copy the selected files to the folder of your choice.
      Option 2: Copy All
      This will copy all the files in the list to a selected folder
      Option 3: Delete Selected
      Same as option 1 but this deletes the file from the Windows Update temp folder.
      Option 4: Delete All
      Same as option 2 but deletes the files from the Windows Update temp folder.
      Source Folder
      This will take you to the folder containing the actually *.cab files.
      Destination Folder
      This will take you to the folder where you chose to copy the files to.

      The 'MSU to CAB Converter' converts your Microsoft Updates to CAB files which you can use to integrate into your Windows Image or use the CAB Installer to integrate them into your current OS.

      Step 1: Adding the Updates
      Click 'Add Updates' and select the MSU files you wish to convert, you will then see them adding to the list.
      Step 2: Click Start
      Click 'Start' and select where you want the MSU files to go
      Step 3: Wait
      Wait for the files to convert, files will go green when once they have done.
