Vista Updates

Posted: 05-10-2007, 04:27 PM
Hello NG,

I'm using WSUS and I want to extract all Vista-Updates and install them
on a Vista machine, which is not connected to WSUS.

I tried the following:

1. Extract all Vista-Updates => .cab-Files
2. pkgmgr /ip /m:C:\Temp\xx.cab, where xx.cab are the extracted files

There are no error messages and also not installed updates. :-(

Does anyone know, how to install these .cab-files?

Peter

Vista Updates
Posted: 02-14-2008, 10:04 PM
On automatic updates today, my computer could not reboot and went into
Startup Repair V2. It reported:
Problem Signature 01 Auto Failover
Problem Signature 05 Bad Driver
Problem Signature 06 Bad Driver

I ended up doing a system restore and got it to reboot. I turned off
automatic updates as it immediately wanted to update probably the same that
shut it down.
I'm running Vista Ultimate in a Dell Latitude.
Any suggestions?

Did Windows Update install a new driver for you? If so, which?

Why don't you do a manual scan of Windows Update and see what it proposes.

Turned off automatic updates via the Windows Update Control Panel applet
or Disabling the Windows Update service via the Services console ?

If you've Disabled the WU service then there's no need to boot to Safe
Mode.
Otherwise, boot to Safe Mode and remove the contents of these subfolders

WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download
WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\EventCache

You may need to show hidden files, folders, and system files to view the
above locations:

Restart to normal Windows mode. When the yellow icon [or whatever it is
in Vista] appears in the Notification area, click on it and see which
updates are being offered. Write them down and then click Cancel.

Head over to either the Microsoft Update Catalog :
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx
or the MS Download Center:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/S...displaylang=en
and search for the updates by their KB numbers.
Download and SAVE them.
When you're done, install them with the browser and all programs closed.

From what I've been reading in the Windows Update newsgroup, there is
apparently an issue with some Vista systems not having all the updates
downloaded but the OS thinks it has and thus attempts to install the
phantom ones repeatedly. Some systems can not be stopped from rebooting
as if a bad driver had been installed.

Thanks for the suggestions.
The update that shuts things down is KB944533 which is the Cumulative
Security Update for IE7.
It looks like a lot of people are having trouble with this.
I'm obviously not installing it.
Thanks again for your help with this.
