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.
This will take you to the folder containing the actually *.cab files.
This will take you to the folder where you chose to copy the files to.
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.
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
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Tick the boxes next to the updates your want to remove, sometimes it does help to check updates which are marked as 'superseded' and remove those.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'.
