Manually install Windows 7 updates


Download the updates from Microsoft Update Catalog for the desired architecture, x86 or x64, then run from the command line the following:

cd “your/folder/containing/downloaded/updates”
for %h in (*.msu) do start /wait wusa “%cd%\%h” /quiet /norestart

Note 1: Credits go to StackOverflow, IT blogs and alike, sites that helped me with the code when searching for solutions.
Note 2: Be aware that when copy-pasting, the quotes and possibly other characters get messed up by WordPress, you’ll have to replace them.
Note 3: While I may have tested myself most of the bits of code posted here, please be aware that you’re trying the code/scripts at your own risk, and I take no responsibility for any damage that may occur on your system(s).
