  1. 1) The two speces are the default state from original installer

    2) i use slim msi installers for all vcredist, msi entries do not have display icon by default

    using original installers (specially 2017/2013/2012) will add many bloat files and registy:

    i could add custom display icon for each msi file (similar to .NET addon), but i'm trying to keep things minimal and default as much as possible

    3) actually, upon further tsting, there are more diffirent registry values in COMPONENTS keys
    i will update Win810 addons

    4) thanks for notifying, SxS entries are hard to keep an eye on :)
    i will fix that ASAP

    Hello, abbodi1406!

    If you have plans to create an addon of VisualCppRedist AIO, I will add its support in UpdatePack7R2. If people need it at all, because I have seen an outdated topic in this section of the forum.

    It's doable, but will not be complete

    2017 is updated constantly
    maybe i will make two, one with 2010/2012/2013, and one with 2017 only which i could easily update

    2005/2008 are WinSxS assemblies, they cannot be properly added offline, so they are out of the picture for now

    Hi abbodi1406! Thanks for this wonderful addon. I will try to add his support to the UpdatePack7R2.

    To test, I decided to first integrate it manually and chose x64 version. There were several questions.

    1) Not all data from NDP472-KB4470640-x64.reg is imported into the registry - Classes\CLSID\{FEDB2179-2335-48F1-AA28-5CDA35A2B36D} can write only TrustedInstaller, so if Win Toolkit works with user rights, this entry will be skipped. I can get around this problem by importing twice - from the administrator and from TrustedInstaller.

    2) Does it make sense to add LangPacks? I think they do not do anything useful for the work of the programs, but maybe I'm wrong?

    3) I also see no reason to leave automatic start of services NGEN, according to my observations, they only periodically load the processor, but I don’t think there is a practical sense from this optimization, programs do not run faster. Please correct if it is not, otherwise we need to disable these services.


    Hello, you are welcome :)

    1) Wintoolkit correctly import all registry keys, even those TrustedInstaller ones, i verified that since the  beginning :)
    i don't really know how the developer accomplish that

    2) I only started creating LP addons since 4.7.1 due requests, indeed, they are not very useful except to silence Windows Update

    3) I don't know for sure, but i tend to leave configurations as default like original setup, the user can disable it then


    regarding integration, i actually have mini pack for personal use, which extract/prepare/integrate the addon without Wintoolkit :)
    i use NSudo to get TrustedInstaller rights

    Wrong Info from MS, as usual...

    Or you mean, it happens because the component KB2952664 is now built-in in the monthly rollup and the request comes after the rollup has been installed?

    It was correct at that time :)

    WU check for appraiser telemetry components, not updates number
    and if present, it offer KB3150513

    KB2952664 components are fully included in Monthly Rollup

    KB3150513 is old and superseded, and Microsoft should expire it

    KB3177467 is removed from Download Center, and links no longer works
    use catalog links instead






    regarding KB3150513

    it's requested because it depend on telemetry components existence, not KB2952664 itself
    and KB2952664 contents are now included in Monthly Rollup

  6. Standalone updated Installer with KB4457016 preview rollup
