WSUS Offline Update for Windows and Office
Tired of waiting for hundreds of updates once you’ve installed Windows ? Can not find all the updates for your version of Office ? Microsoft has released a huge amount of patches for their products, but to get them to (almost) everyone is a frightening task, unless you use the excellent WSUS Offline Update .
Previously , I mentioned that Windows XP is running out official support. This led me to do some experiments in virtual environments, comparing the ancient XP with their older siblings. Beyond age differences, all versions of Windows have something in common: The decision of Microsoft to abandon its policy of service packs has greatly complicated the deployment process for your operating system . The Redmond giant insists that the best way to receive updates is through your platform Windows Update , but it never fails that time that shows certain temperament. At this point, it’s amazing that even have a Windows 7 Service Pack 2, therefore, the only options left are to surrender our will to Windows Update, or manually download updates and appeal to the magic of slipstreaming .
As you can imagine, navigate the portal downloads Microsoft is a nightmare, but we are fortunate to have a tool like WSUS Offline Update , currently at version 8.9. All you have to do is select the operating system and language for hotfixes , choose some optional parameters (such as service packs and download all the software related. NET Framework) , and press Start. According to the updates you have selected, the download process may take several hours , but it is reasonable to pay in exchange for all these updates in a local folder price. WSUS Offline Update supports all versions older and modern for Windows and Office , but also has a section “Legacy” dedicated to Windows XP and Office 2003. Like XP, Office 2003 extended support will run out on 8 April, and who has a copy may want to integrate your patches in a stronger version. The program requires no installation, so you can take it on a flash drive as desired.
