Discussion: Automatic Update Moving


Recommended Posts

Hello, clearly there is an issue of what happens when a known update is moved to the silent installers. I'm planning on designing a screen which appears when know updates are detected and you will untick the ones you wish to keep in the Updates lists.


Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions, etc... :)


Quick design:

Seems a good idea.

You should put a dialog like this:

WinToolkit have detected that the following update(s) can't be integrated, it/they will be moved to the silent installers (will be executed silently at first logon), if you know for sure it's a false positive and it/they can be integrated, you can uncheck it/them.

All done. Any more suggestions? These updates go into their own group which gets integrated last.


EDIT: It now remembers what you last unticked so each time it appears, the ones you've unticked previously will already be unticked.

Just my two cents. :)

I never really understood why some updates appeared in my silent installer list to begin with so please excuse my nubie status on this subject. I just went with the flow and my installations were always okay.


however after my installs there were always the netframework 4.52 updates. I don't have the list handy but there are about 6 of them after you would have windows check for updates after a new install with WTK. so I wrote them down and downloaded them from Microsoft download. I believe they are EXE files. I added them to the silent installs with I believe /q, /norestart option. now all this works for me. they get integrated perfectly and I'm  down to only 2 updates left after a new install. the monthly Microsoft virus tool and another one which I cant remember now, sorry for my vagueness (no coffee yet) but it was another kinda optional type.


so how will this new edition you created affect those silent installers? regards
