Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

Q: Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

I now local to point Any Windows way Updates to directory? a have W PCs and a few XPs I want to update and want a couple more but updating amp keeping them that way with my limited-bandwidth speed ISP is a real challenge I've tried to utilize the MS Update Catalog so that I only have to download individual updates Once and I recently found Brink's excellent tutorial on getting a download directly from the WU dialog but still this is such a chore I assume that professionals make updating easier by using MS Update Catalog and Windows Server Update Services WSUS but I don't run Windows Server and don't want to buy Server and build another computer Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory? just for this task Can anyone suggest a method to update a PC from a local directory still using the WU dialog As it is I have to look at the updates WU is requesting then open my download directory of update files find or download afresh the right one s and then execute them one-by-one rebooting the PC sometimes blah blah it's painful as heck Checking all the updates you want and letting WU take-over is so much easier except that I can't afford either the time OR the bandwidth to do these downloads for each every computer I own Is there another way

Preferred Solution: Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Any way to point Windows Updates to a local directory?

Hello!

Unfortunately, this is much easier said than done. It is possible, and I have written a few program scraps to prove viability, and early results are good for this being possible (very simply, ask Windows Update to perform a search for updates, but download only (this is very easy to do), scrape the SoftwareDistribution folder, and implant onto another computer (and before you try, you CANNOT just drop in this folder - it requires using parts of the contents etc. etc.))

So it does appear to be possible for a program (but not a human unless you have a very good knowledge of the SoftwareDistribution folder)

However, demand for such a program is not great, and I have only a limited amount of time to program. I literally have 27 programs for Windows Update bits and bobs which I want to make. Sadly I do not have the time for all of these, or this one. (Currently I am making an automated fixing tool for the 0x800B0100 error code, and a tool to automate certain procedures in the registry which are too complicated (and dangerous) for an average poster to perform)

The only thing you can use to simplify downloading is WSUS Offline: WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection

However, you will need to invest in all of the updates, so watch your downloading total.

I am really sorry that I could not be of more help, but unfortunately, this program is not going to be made

Hi all,
Is there a way to point all new user logins to an existing local user profile in Windows 7? I want to avoid the process of having the new user's profile being copied from the Default profile so I can speed up login times. We use VMware View in non-persistent
mode so when the student logs out the desktop is nuked (kinda like DeepFreeze). Because of this every time the user logs in the Default profile gets copied over and it takes a long time. I do not want to use roaming profiles.
I found a product that does this (ForensIT's User Profile Manager 2.1) but unfortunately it does not do passthrough login from the VMware View Client, the user has to log in there
then log into the Windows desktop which is unacceptable.
I am at my wits end here :-(
Thanks

If I install Win7 with SP1 integrated afresh now, it'll still have to slog through hours and GBs of updates most likely. So I was wondering, if for example I install IE11 manually, wouldn't that save the time taken to install updates for IE8 (or whatever version comes with SP1)? Same with the latest .NET perhaps? Or is this a foolish idea? Any other way to hasten the updates?

A:Any way to hasten Windows 7 updates at this point?

well; yes; you might be able to try doing it that way; however; in the end it might just end up taking the same amount of time to download and install the rest of the updates as the size of some of the other updates may just be as big as ie etc.

I am setting up my own small network that include the following configuration :

Server : Windows 2000 Server with active directory
Clients : 5 clients

My question is :

Is there an easier way have the existing local account converted to active directory account.

Objective :

I want to be able to have the current user of the pc sign-on to an active directory account and be able to have all the access to the existing applications, email(outlook express), bookmarks etc. which have been there in the local pc before the active dierctory upgrade.

I found that once I log in the local pc to the active directory domain, everything start fresh. The "my document" is empty. Cant see all the setting/folders which have been set up before the conversion to active directory.

Appreciate any suggestion.

Thx

I've had this happen on a couple machines and a couple printers. A local printer is installed and working correctly. After installing some windows updates, all of a sudden the local printer won't print.

On one computer, the print queue shows the print job in the queue, spools and then prints successfully, but never actually physically prints.

On another computer, the print jobs that originally sent to the local printer, get re-directed to some other network printer.

I've already uninstalled and re-installed the printer with the latest drivers.

I have clients that want a backup server in case of a failure of their main Windows AD server.

Would I be better off with backup/restore programs like Acronis True Image or Symantec System Restore or Symantec Ghost, or would I be better off setting up a second Active Directory server? Would the second AD server one take over if the first one failed? Would it replicate data and user settings etc? Would it add unneeded complexity for us and the clients?

Anyone who may have some insight to this, please give some suggestions.

Just wondering what folders with these kinds of names are supposed to be.

They're empty and I'm doing a routine cleanup (where I delete all folders that I know are left behind from programs I've uninstalled. I usually clean everything up manually, then run CCleaner, then run the registry cleaner as well).

I've seen these several times but have never bothered to ask about them, and just let them be. But now I'll ask I suppose - any idea what these are for?

Perhaps they're just temporary folders used in some sort of process?

A:What are these folders in my \AppData\Local directory?

Those folders are created by the Windows Update, usual culprit is Windows Live and various components of it. For instance if you are using Live Mail client you will get these folders.

This issue is common and also previously discussed at the Seven Forums in for instance these threads:Empty folders in AppData/Local
AppData\Local - Folders with random characters
It's a minor bug in Update not to automatically delete these after the update has finished. You can read more and find a script to delete these at Microsoft Answers: What is creating the hex folders (hex names in curly braces) - Microsoft Community

Hello David, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Yes, it's safe to delete your temp files.

Users Local has been deemed that the creation Force Active Directory Users to Log Into a Shared Local Profile. of a new account from the Default profile takes too long when logging into Active Directory and slows presenting down too much Our Default profile is probably around Mb due to the contents of the image after deployment and how every application is tailored for Force Active Directory Users to Log Into a Shared Local Profile. use hence the AppData folder takes the bulk of the size up and it's not an option to remove it These PC's are for now at least but hopefully not for much longer locked down by Deep Freeze which resets all changes to all files when the PC is rebooted so a shared profile is not a problem at this point in time What I want to know is whether there is ANY way to make it so that a user authenticating to Active Directory can ALWAYS be forced into a pre-configured local profile running on Win Pro I've been looking at credential providers and replacing USERINIT exe I'm just not sure which part of the process actually tells the PC which profile to use I know that the registry is checked for the user GUID and if not present creates a new entry and copies the Default profile but I don't know quite where this is called and how to modify it My programming knowledge limited to a bit of CMD and AutoIt but I do know a few coders so if we really have to get our hands dirty on this it isn't the end of the world I should also add I've recently been toying with taking the AppData folder outside of the Default profile and creating a SymLink to it but upon copying the Default profile to a new profile much quicker and more acceptable the SymLink is lost and replaced with a relatively empty set of folders which can't be deleted and replaced with a SymLink because the LSASS exe process is using it and obviously you can't stop that process Making the PC log into a local profile on startup is also not an option because a user MUST log into AD to not be in breach of our AUP and all network drives must be availalbe mapped by GPo and login script Any help is more than welcome at this point in time as I've pretty much exhausted all avenues that I know of and have turned to you helpful folk nbsp Cheers

I have desktop computers in 2 remote sites, that were all from the same image.  The image was made at the regional headquarters.  Both sites have a wsus mirror server on site that they are reporting to, but they are usually (not always) pulling
their updates via branchcache from a non wsus server at the regional headquarters (and eating up a lot of bandwidth).  Computers not made from this image do not have this issue. 


I've already tried doing a 'netsh branchcache reset' on all the desktops with this image, but it has not had any effect. 

-any other commands I can run on the desktops or the non-wsus server that would fix this?

The last round (3-12) of nine Windows updates (included KB 2919442 the "spring release / Win 8.1 update 1") Usually when the installation starts one thing you see is "creating a restore point' - that did not happen this time for me. Found that strange but figured maybe a day later the system would create one - it didn't. I know I can create one manually but am wondering if anyone else has seen the same thing ?

Edit: Answer System Restore creates a restore point before the installation of CRITICAL Updates, not important.

im just curious on if updating your system bios is worth it or what exactly it would do--
i was looking @ a few driver sites that have my manufacturer (phoenix technologies) but there is a huge list and im not sure how to find the one i need---if i need it---

just curious
 

A:bios updates install/point?

You can upgrade the system BIOS for sure. But first of all you need to download the exact driver depending on the motherboard you've. The exact model or else it could cause a lot of problems for you. Might not be able to access even the HDD at bootup. So need to be very careful when you upgrade the BIOS driver.

Upgrading the BIOS is a good option but it has to be done very very carefully.

There was another thread where the person was having a few problems(a few fatal exceptions, blue screens) he was able to solve it by upgrading his BIOS, audio and may be also video drivers. So BIOS upgrade is OK.

Now this is the most important thing - If everything is working fine then let it be and no need to fix it.

Hope this helps...

Hi all - I have had a Dell Inspiron 3520 for 3 weeks now. It has had 2 Windows Updates in that time. Both times I lost Internet connection and any way of connecting. The connection bar for the wi-fi was on, connection good but no Internet. After a lot of chat with Dell I did a System restore to Factory settings the first time (16 days ago). I also did a restore point once I'd re-set everything up again.

2 days ago the same thing happened after a Windows update and I also could not locate the restore point so it was back to Factory settings.

I've tried Dell again online chat at work but they insist on me talking again to someone online which takes a lot of time.

Has anyone seen this before and do you have any ideas/suggestions/workarounds?

Thanks

A:Losing Internet and System restore point after Updates

I would suggest for laptop is to check for the latest BIOS. Go to setup or run system info to find out the BIOS version your system currently have. Last week I helped a friend with a problem installing Windows 8 in his DELL laptop and it turned out that he needs to update the BIOS.

The problem you are having is unrelated to his, but to insure that you have the latest BIOS. Try this first then we can go from there.

Hi In response to a system update I selected all updates both recommended and optional and let them be installed After rebooting the screen came back in x It occurred to me that the brilliant system update did not make the best recommendation and it had probably reapply rollback after point? restore to to updates specific how a written over my display driver After looking around for advice I wanted to roll back just the display driver but in the driver properties this option was not available So I rolled back the system to the last restore point prior to the update Voila my screen came back to native resolution and my machine how to reapply specific updates after rollback to a restore point? works again However now there are important updates several of them security related how to reapply specific updates after rollback to a restore point? which show up in the update history but which are probably not actually applied now When I run the system update it only comes with new update In the update history log it shows the updates which how to reapply specific updates after rollback to a restore point? have been rolled back with the date on which they were originally applied So I think that the log is probably wrong How to reapply them I thought the logical thing would be to right-click on each update in the log and select reapply - but that does not exist Any geniuses out there who can point me in the right direction Thanks in advance W Home Premium on Asus U

A:how to reapply specific updates after rollback to a restore point?

Simply go to Windows Update and install whatever is offered.
The History is just that - a log of what happened. The important listing is the Installed Updates one.

If I have three computers on local network and only one has internet access will this update all machines on local network?

A:Updates on Local Network

Yeah - this is a great option. It does not entirely stop getting stuff from internet as it is basically a torrent system, but is much faster and much reduces download demand

A torrent system basically extacts bits of a file from multiple sources, so each serving pc does not have to upload whole file (uploading usually being slower than downloading), and receiving pc glues it all together again. So you might get 5 pcs uploading a fifth each of the file at the same time, and pc can download all five parts simultaneously as download is usually several times faster than upload. It actually works in much smaller increments, but the principle is the same.

I always update my fast pc first, leaving my other slower devices switched off. Then I turn on other devices, and you see the hdd flicking away as it serves the updates to the other devices.

Do not enable last option as it will 'steal' bandwidth from you.

I run a small stand-alone network that has no connectivity to the internet. I currently download Microsoft updates and antivirus dats from an internet connected pc, burn them to a cd then copy them to one of the computers on the stand-alone network. I then "pull" the updates manually from each machine on the stand-alone network.

Is there a way to configure these XP boxes to look to a certain local location for updates?

Any help would be appreciated.

With the setting as shown on the attached screen shot, does the PC send updates to other PCs directly through router without passing through internet, i.e. does this setting save internet data volume?

Yes, if you keep this setting enabled your computers will act as a update cache for your other Windows 10 devices and it will reduce internet usage.

It is my understanding that if they return to their PC and see that an admin was logged in, they just needed to change it to their user name and password and everything's fine...?? YES or NO ???

See if you can System Restore to before Net Framework 4 was installed and then Hide it when it is again offered in Updates.

But be aware that some programs will need it and may not prompt you of this leaving you to guess why they are not installing or performing correctly. For this reason I always install it.

So you might want to reinstall it using its standalone installer since it may not have uninstalled correctly anyway.

Hi there.. is there someone that could help me out? I've searched and searched but have not found a satisfying error free answer yet..: (well, 2 questions actually...)
1.
I want to move the entire User Folder in my Vista OS in a different alltogether hard drive.
instead of c:\users\myusername...I want something like f:\my_folder_users\myusername
This would also apply to os folders such as AppData, and default location of file allocation, ie Microsoft or Adobe.
I am aware that you can move specific user folders but not the entire tree... Any help with that?

2.
I want to move the default target installation directory for any new application... I mean you can do it the manual way but some of the programs may not allow this, or even addons...

Any help greatly appreciated...
M.
 

A:Moving the User directory & default installation directory

I'm not answering this with any great confidence that you are not going to get into trouble here, but the default locations for the "current user" -- what you are talking about in item 1 -- are covered in this registry location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

You might find some more information here:

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_shell_folders.htm

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is a way to get setup programs to automatically offer that.

“------Now let us consider the same situation but with two Ethernets connected by a pair of routers instead of a switch. The routers are connected by a point-to-point, possibly a leased line thousands of kilometers long.”.

Here he mentioned physical leased (dedicated) line.

I can get to C:\Users\Owner but with command extensions enabled in administrator mode (CMD E:ON) the CD command will not accept My Documents as a valid directory name within Owner. The error I get is "The system cannot find the path specified." My goal is to get a directory tree (as a file) of the directories and files in My Documents with the DIR command when in that directory. The complete DOS line for that command would read C:\Users\Owner\My Documents>DIR /o:n /s > DirTreeList.txt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Seven Forums utnatw7f387. I'm far from an expert, but will throw out something simple until the smart people see this. have you tried

A really stupid question, but perhaps for that reason I cannot find the answer stated explicitly anywhere:

With regard to the threat description used in Windows update documentation, I have always assumed that a "local attacker" is someone actually sitting at my desk. Is this correct?

In this case, presumably an "authenticated local attacker" is someone sitting at my desk who has got hold of my password?

If the answer to both questions is 'yes' then I guess there is really no point in my installing updates involving a 'local' threat?

Incidentally, while trying to find the answer with Google I ended up with a 'captcha' page, apparently to check I wasn't a robot! My machine was sending unusual traffic or something. My numerous searches with slightly different choice of words must have triggered something. Weird and scary!

I keep getting Error message: Install Failure after Windows updates are downloaded and Windows attempts to install those updates.

The download is successfull, however, after Windows 7 attempts to install those updates I get this message:

Configuring Windows Update. Do Not Turn off computer.

After Windows attempts the installations of those updates, I get the following message: Failure configuring Service Pack. Reverting Changes. Error_install_failure (0x80070643).

I contacted Microsoft on the problem via emails....they went through a number of trouble shooting techniques....but after all of their recommendations, all they could tell me was to reinstall Windows 7.

I really would not like to do that. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

As the title says, I have problems with Windows Update. I tried some fixes like: Reset_Reregister_Windows_Update_Components, Reset_Windows_Update_History, MicrosoftFixit50362 (which is a Microsoft Installer Fixer that couldn't install PowerShell), MicrosoftFixit50202. But what I really need is installing .NET Framework 4. I tried forcing it to install, installing it step by step, but it couldn't go further than .NET Framework 3.5. I need that Framework, the other updates don't really matter. And the interesting thing is that my antivirus doesn't say that Windows is not up-to-date, which is not normal, in ESET Smart Security, if Windows is not up-to-date.

A:Windows Update stuck at Checking for Updates and can't install Updates manually

Hi antoniu200:
 
Many other Vista users have reported that Windows Update seems to get stuck at "Checking for updates..." for long periods of time, and this problem dates back to the August 2015 Patch Tuesday updates - see my screenshots in ScousaJAY's thread windows update just seems to hang while checking in the VistaForums. This month's December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates required a full hour on my machine before it finished the  "Checking for updates..." phase and finally presented a list of available updates, so you might want to try running a manual Windows Update and leaving your computer alone for an hour or so to see if it eventually runs to completion.
 
You might also want to read Nikilet's recent thread Updates were not configured correctly in that same forum.  Some Vista users, including myself, received an error message this month stating "Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes. Please do not turn off your computer" when they tried to install the December 2015 Patch Tuesday updates.  Six updates for the Vista OS and one cumulative update for IE9 were marked as "Failed" on my machine after Windows forced an automatic rollback and re-boot of my machine.  I re-ran Windows Update today and all Important updates that failed yesterday eventually installed successfully ("Checking for updates..." still took about one hour and I declined one Recommended update KB3112148 for Vista and one Optional update KB3106614 for Silverlight today) so the secret might be to install updates in smaller batches instead of trying to install all dozen or so available updates in a single update session.

Suddenly Windows 7 has stopped installing Windows Updates. It downloads, then creates restore point, starts installation, but then comes back with the error code 800F0900. This happens with all the updates when carried out individually, critical or optional. I first went through the process of clearing all the Start-up Programs in the Services section of msconfig. As that did not solve it I then stopped all but MS services, and that did not solve it.  I tried the Microsoft .NET Setup Verification Tool. This said there were problems that it could not fix and sent a report to Microsoft.  Following an earlier thread on this site, I installed and used the Windows Repair program from Tweeking.com. This failed to solve the problem. Does any one have any other possible advice to help solve this problem ?

A:Windows Updates will not install. Error code 800F0900 for all updates.

Hi bro,I had the same problem 3 days ago and I have solved the problem so, I think, I can help you,first of all I need to know if you have any antivirus tool intalled on your computer,if it so,[download CLEANER sofware from filehippo.com-it's important]uninstall them,for this action use safe mode by pressing F8 button,when you boot with safe mod you will not be able to uninstall your antivirus,because you have loaded only the drivers that needs safe mod,that's why you must delete your antivirus manually,for best result go to control panel-->folder options-->mark "show hidden files,folders,archives" apply and ok then go to user folder and open AppData\Local\"antivirus folder" and delete it,after this open AppData\Roaming\"antivirus folder" and delete it as well,at the end,you have to delete the main folder of your antivirus,that is installed on C or another drive.for example:C:\Program Files\ESET.After that open cleaner go to REGISTRY and scan for issues and if you get[I am sure you will get errors] any problem,fix them[delete them,you don't need to save registry settings before deleting] after cleaning registry, you have to run cleaner,so, go to software main window and press RUN CLEANER button[it's the last step] and restart your computer with normal mode.Now you can install updates and configure your windows safely.I hope this will help you

A:How important are MS Office updates? Are they included in Windows Critical Updates?

bloomcounty said:

I've got Office 2003 Student Edition (all installed, minus Outlook). I haven't done any updates to it. I did not install the Microsoft GDI+ Detection tool. And I only visit Windows Update (not Microsoft Update) and install the critical updates under custom install.

I'm wondering:

1. Are the updates for MS Office that are critical security things included when you do Windows Update? (For example, there are a number of things listed here towards the bottom: http://isc.sans.org/diary.html?storyid=2232 -- would those have been included in the last batch of critical Windows updates?

2. Do you need the GDI+ thing to do Office Updates?

3. When you go to the Office Updates site, it wants you to install and run some kind of Active X thing. Is this necessary? And can it cause any problems?

4. Can doing critical Office updates (separate from whatever, if anything, that comes with Windows Update) cause any problems or conflicts with other things on your computer?

Thanks for the help!Click to expand...

1. No. You either do Windows update and Office update, or you do Microsoft update, which does both at once.

2. I think so, but I am not positive. If you need it, it will install it, or, if you decline, you may not get updates. One way to find out, try it.

3. I don't think it will do the updates without it. Again, try it. It never caused any problems for me having it.

4. I can't guarantee that, nor can anyone else. Sometimes these "hotfixes" cause problems. Wait at least a few days after release to update was my motto. If there were any problems, you may hear about them, giving you the option to wait for that "fix" and, it gives MS time to be notified and correct it. Hopefully.

For what it's worth, I always kept my XP updated, waiting a few days after the release of course.
Hope this helps.

A:How Important Are Ms Office Updates? Are They Included In Windows Critical Updates?

I don't have that detection tool either. At least some of the office updates are available through the windows update feature. You can also navigate to the Office updates site from the windows update site. There are no problems with installing the office updates separately. In fact, I generally download only 1 or 2 updates at a time as I am on dial-up.

A:Microsoft Security Essentials updates blocking other windows updates

My understanding of MSE is it will check several times during the to make it has the latest updates. Most GOOD VA programs will do this as there are several releases daily for AV definitions. This is the only way you and your machine will be aware of these releases.

When some of these attacks happen, a definition is released, but as the infection is refined, the the definition must also be refined and/or improved. I use F-Prot on my machines, but I install MSE on the kids and grand kids machines. I have seen as many as 12 releases in one day from F-Prot, this is what is call" being on top of things".

So I would not want to rely on ME being the one to check several times daily on all of my machines to see if a new release has been made.

Try mapping the network drive on the user's computer via the command prompt, and then setting the /persistent flag to yes.

For example:

Log in as the end user on their Windows XP workstation. Open My Computer and disconnect the H:\ drive so that it goes offline and disappears from the My Computer window.
Open up the Command Prompt.
Map the network drive via the command prompt using the following commands:

net use h: \\fileserver\users\%username%

Then press [Enter] and wait for the command prompt to confirm success. Next set the /persistent switch for the mapped network drives.

net use /persistent:yes

Then press [Enter] and wait for the command prompt to confirm success. Open My Computer and confirm that the mapped home drive reference has been created. Restart the computer and check it again. If it switches out, there may be a script that is running at login or some other setting that is being pushed out via Group Policy that is interfering with the network drive mappings.

Cabling: Structured vs. Point-To-Point
When it comes to data center cabling, there are two primary options: structured and point-to-point. This article should look at the pros and cons of both, how they differ, etc. When and where is one option a better fit over the other? How does the cabling option chosen affect overall data center flexibility, performance, and future-proofing?

Right click on the ones you already have (when they show up again) and 'hide' them. That will stop the nuisance.

Hi Zeek1017,

Welcome to Seven forums.

You should go ahead with all the updates on the system. As updates whether for the drivers or software provide better security and more features to the particular hardware or software.

However, it is always recommended to create a restore point manually before updating the system so that if required you can revert as well:

System Restore Point - Create

This tutorial would show you how you can perform system restore if required:

System Restore

Lastly. check this tutorial for setting updates automatically if you wish to do so:

Windows Update Settings - Change

Hope this answers your query. If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact us.

After installing the Anniversary Update, I checked some of the Windows Update settings. I found that the "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows" is now unchecked and further more it is also grayed out so I cannot recheck it.

Until the October 2014 updates I would always receive a sytray notice of which updates had been installed. To clarify, after new Windows Updates were installed and with or without a reboot of the system, I would receive a systray notification that new updates had been installed and upon clicking that notification a window would open and show the updates that had been installed and success or failure status.

I no longer receive that notification. This was true for the October and November patch Tuesday updates. I can open Windows Update and select View Update History and see that the updates were installed but the systray notification only showed the latest installation history and was more convenient that having to open Windows Update to view the update history.

Anyone have any idea as to what caused the systray notification to stop working after updates were installed? OS is Win 7 Home Premium SP 1.

TIA for any replies.

I am using Office 2013 Pro & it does not show updates in the normal Windows Update section on my computer. I have to refer to any Office application, select File & then Accounts to see that I have automatic updates selected & the update number, but it does not tell me if it is the latest update, so I have to check to see that it is the latest, which it is apparently.
I would like to be able to see which Office updates are available & to install them as I do with the usual Windows Updates. Can anyone suggest a solution please.

A:How do I get Office 2013 updates to show in Windows Updates.

Just a random thought. Does your computer have the "Click-to-Run" version of Office installed? Updates for the C2R version do not appear in Windows Update or WSUS. Updates are downloaded in the background automatically (whether you want them to or not).

You can identify C2R by looking under the File tab. There will be a button that shows update options (on or off) and the version number. Another way to identify C2R is in Window's Programs & Features. With C2R, you no longer have the ability to add or delete Office applications.

Hi, it seems like I get no more updates offered when I search for updates. My latest important updates are from 05.10.13. Since then I only get the same 42 optional updates shown. Shouldn't there be a few new ones (important and optional ones) since one month? Yesterday I read about the new IE11, that didn't show up either. Is there a website with a history of all released updates so I can check if there are any updates released/available that I didn't get offered in the last month?

A:No new Windows updates shown when 'search for updates' - Problem?

IE 11 isn't being offered through Windows Updates yet, except in certain areas.
The latest Important Updates should have been installed around 8th October
What happens if you attempt to install any of the optional updates?
There is no formal list of updates, since the list may vary from machine to machine - however, the listing in the forum stick here is kept pretty much up-to-date.

Hi to the group. I am having a problem figuring out why I no longer can run regedit from the run bar in search. The search gives an error message that regedit can't be found in C:\windows\system32 which I can understand because its actual location on my computer is in C:\windows and opens properly when I do so from that location. has this application been moved in some way so that it can no longer be found where search expects it to be?

I think this is a Windows problem rather than a Windows Live Mail problem. For no apparent reason, I could no longer save or open email attachments. No error messages, just nothing happens. I opened up all of the mail security and nothing changed. Then I found that doing something like importing or exporting contacts, mail, etc or changing storage locations acts the same.

I did a clean removal of Win Live and re-installed it. Nothing changed. Any suggestions other than a new Win 7 install?

Hi everybody!

As I'm a basic Windows XP Pro user and I'm not digging in its directories, I didin't notice that my Windows directory was not there (C:\) until last night when I needed to open the System32 folder as part of an installation process. Big suprise for me!!! Windows directory was not there and I couldn't complete my task.

As I can boot normally my computer, it's obvious that my Windows is working stable and without absolutely any problem (so far).

Is there any way I can unhide Windows directory?

Any help in this sense will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your support.
