    Notes:
    - The addon will conflict with some Windows Updates (.NET 3.5 Family), so leave the addon's integration to the last.
    - Add main addon first before LangPack addon, to get ASP.NET service localization properly.
    - To function properly, .NET 4.7.x require D3DCompiler_47.dll component, which is found in either the current "Monthly Quality Rollup" or "update KB4019990". It is recommended to integrate it first, or you can install it later.

    abbodi1406 reacted to bphlpt in Windows Installation - Where I can change the modification date   
    1 ) Take the DateToIntegr8.vbs script above, (just delete the .txt part of the name) and save it wherever you want, say C:\time.
    2 ) Then open a command prompt in that directory.
    3 ) Enter the following command: cscript DateToInteger8.vbs "06/09/2014 10:30:00 PM", where the date and time are that of your local time zone
    4 ) Use calc.exe (programmer mode) to convert to hex (QWORD) - Enter the output from DateToInteger8, which will be a decimal value, in the calculator in decimal mode, then switch modes to hex to see the hex value you need.
    5 ) @KEiGHT, in his local time zone got: 1CF842195DB5400
    6 ) You can validate that the value you have is correct by entering in the command prompt: w32tm /ntte 0x1CF842195DB5400
    7 ) @KEiGHT, in his local time zone got: 151004 20:30:00.0000000 - 6/9/2014 10:30:00 PM
    8 ) Zero pad the value from the calculator to get 16 digits: 01CF842195DB5400
    9 ) The leftmost 8 digits will be the highpart (01CF8421) and the rightmost 8 digits will be the lowpart (95DB5400).

    I'm not sure if the date displayed in the OS version selection window is that of your local time zone or GMT, so you might have to adjust the values you enter above slightly, but since the output from w32tm includes GMT you should be able to figure out what you need to change.
     
    So you found the .xml file where you need to enter this revised value?  Where is it?

    express cab contains only the update manifest files + xml file.. those are used by WU to identify the original package contents and to determine what components of it are needed for the system so it download them only
     
    i.e.
    if the update are multilingual, it will download only lang resources matching your system
     
    only WU knows how to handle this mechanism
    so, express cab are useless and cannot be used for integration

    abbodi1406 reacted to bphlpt in HELP: Couple of integration questions   
    Read the entire thread.  Yes he was trying to use all possible updates, but he did quite a bit of analysis to determine which lists are the most complete and up to date and without duplicates.
     
    What is your intention?  Just to satisfy Windows Update or get all available updates?  And are you building an install source just for your personal home use or are you making an install source for business use or what?
     
     
    1. Yes there are that many updates available if you include the request only updates.
    1a.  I haven't checked all of the various lists, but reasons can include:
     
    * some lists might, or might not, include updates that are obsolete
    * some lists might not be up to date
    * some lists might, or might not, include request only updates
    * some lists might, or might not, include updates that cannot be applied on an offline image
    * some lists might, or might not, include updates that only apply to optional features

    2&3. Windows Update does not, and cannot, download request only updates, even though the request only updates ARE "real" updates, they just might, or might not, officially apply to you at this time.
     
    Request only updates are updates, or hotfixes, that have been developed by MS to deal with specific problems and generally they have not been tested quite as extensively on as wide a variety of systems as the "regular" updates that are pushed out by Windows Update, so there is a very small possibility that they might cause an issue on your system.  But that risk is extremely small and I know of no one personally that has ever had an issue if they installed those request only updates.  But even regular updates have caused issues in the past so it is possible.  Back when MS used to put out Service Packs, such as SP1, ALL updates issued prior to that time would be included in the SP, both regular and request only, so many folks, including me, just figured they might as well go ahead and install the request only updates when they became available, even if they did not apply to them at that time, "just in case".  Others just wanted Windows Update to say they were up to date, and they thought "unnecessary" updates just added bloat and applied to issues that they were unlikely to have, so decided not to install them.  It's up to you to decide what you want.  If you decide that you do not want any of the request only updates, then you might find this thread useful - http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/10811-15-mars-2014-updates-packs-gdr-windows-7-sp1/ - but I have not checked lately to see if all links are still valid or if it is up to date.  You'll probably need to at least read the first page and the last couple of pages in the thread using a translation program such as Google Translate to know for sure what is going on.
     
    As a general rule, you will be better off if you decide whether you want Request only updates or not, pick ONE list that seems to be kept up the best and meets your needs, and just use that one list.  Then pick up the few, if any missing updates after you have installed your system using Windows Update.
     
    Good luck!
     
    Cheers and Regards

    abbodi1406 reacted to Shandra in Is it possible to integrate SP1 into Windows 7 with Wintoolkit?   
    And keep in mind, that the OEM key from the sticker may be a "one-time only" key - as in using it, the activation will be bound to the hardware it is used on (I am mostly using SystemBuilder Variants(*1) for my system (as I build 'em myself or buy 'em without OS) and there thats not a problem (in short: I simply lack the Win7 OEM experience)), but as far as my knowledge has grown on the subject a vital change in hardware may or may not be activatable via phone or strictly license termin speaking may simply be rejected - so I see a reason to the "why someone will stick to autoactivation as long as possible", because then the OEM key could def. be used on changed hardware (if it is the first time this key is used - so why waste it on the OEM Hardware where its not needed) with just using the online activation. I am really not sure on this one, the MS specific sides (technet, etc.) are AFAIK strict on this one-time bound between key and hardware, other sides claim that an activation via phone is still possible.
     
    P.S.: with Win8 this whole OEM/Preactivation Discussion is Void - the new scheme where the "to be activated" key for OEM Systems is kept in the BIOS is a total different matter
     
    *1: Ok, from a German Point of view and an old Sentence about the resale of OEM licenses, MS SB variants where (AFAIK) the result of that verdict (as a different model to pure OEM license (like from Dell or such);  SB (OEM) license is nowadays what is nearly 100% of the time sold to the customer here in germany (and I know only a few (real minority) shops who are actually offering the real retail)... And I am not sure what that means for reactivation on different hardware or such, but according to magazines like the C't (not talking Win8+ here) SB licenses under our law should be reactivatable under new hardware (but that may well be just an urban legend).

    In addition, and as a final remark on my behalf (it is time to get back to my real studies, though it was fun and reminded me to the time of 2005 where I was one of the minorities who bought xp x64 and where often forced to get used to modify .msi's with Orca) - I tried it again with the (official technet) sysprep way... the reason why WinToolkit recognized my first preped image as being corrupt was that I have chosen a custom name for the image.... still now, and after I've named it right, and though simply building a .iso via WT from the syspreped .wim worked like a charm (the get-package information afterwards was the same as for a real sp1 install-media), it failed when I tried to integrate IE11 and its prerequisites. That doesn't worked out well - WT integrated fine, the install resulted in failures which may well be searched in this forum for the early times of IE11 and its integration. So i am not sure if I missed some KB or if it ain't be possible to use WT on a syspreped .wim (which makes no sense IMHO, so my guess would still be a fault in my procedures - and that one may include that I where using a WinPE.iso handed over to the VM that where build with the current ADK release for Win8+; I used that because it is much easier to apply the dism commands (/capture-image) to build the .wim then using the old variant with imageX). 
     
    As said, I still think that it is possible (else all technet sysprep how to build an oem/multilingual media, how to deploy sp1, etc. descriptions wouldn't make sense; At least for the sysprep way).  In the meantime where the vm(s) where occupied with their install I checked the MD5 sums of the KB976902 files with their corresponding parts of KB976932 (SP1) and there where no differences to be found (haven't checked all of the files), so it should - in theory be possible - to get along that way to a working (and future proof) image... But as the OPs question (OEM based Win 7) and my curiosity about Dreamsparks PreSP1 Server 2008 R2 .img are just a minority in cases that may be neglected in the development of WT (or the Foolproof assignments/modules therein (which in my experiences make up 3/4 the time in the development of a GUI based project)) I just give up with trying any further (and will continue with my real work/study again    ).

    abbodi1406 got a reaction from alfreire in Which Updates?   
    General and Security Updates are either GDR only or GDR+LDR
    you can easily install those normally (without LDR mode) to get GDR branch
    and you may include/count Platform & Platform Updates & IE11/10 into this
     
    Hotfixes however, some are LDR only, and the rest are GDR+LDR
    managing those will be tricky for you
     
    anyway, if you want to only have GDR updates, it's better you stick to what Windows Update offers 
    or you may install "General, Security, Platform, Platform Updates, IE11 Cabs, IE11 Updates, WUClient" in normal mode, then go to Windows Update and see what else it offers and download them

    otherwise they get some not wanted-software.

    (2) Unlike in XP, earlier ".NET's" are now part of the OS, and are not designed to be removed, though I think they can be.  And like XP, while .NET 4.5.1 completely replaces 4.5 and 4.0, it does not totally replace 3.5.1 and earlier in the sense that if you did remove 3.5.1 and earlier from your Win7 install, and a poorly written app looked specifically to see if 2.0 or 3.0 or 3.5 was installed, that app would fail even if you had 4.5.1 installed.  At least that's the way I understand how things work.
     
    For (1), I'll let abodi1406 or someone else that knows more than I do about this particular addon answer that definitively, but my opinion is that when you do a new build each month or whatever, and you have new hotfixes, addons, tweaks, etc., you are better off starting from scratch, rather than trying to remove the outdated ones and add the new ones in their place.
