Our last review of WSUS Offline Update dates back almost two years and yesterday’s release of version 8.0 is enough motivation to post an updated review here on the site. WSUS Offline Update is a free portable program for Windows that you can use to download all updates released for a particular version of Windows. This is interesting for a number of reasons, the core being that it enables you to have all Windows updates and patches as executable files on your system, so that you can easily distribute the updates to connected machines or burn them to disc to have them ready whenever you receive a tech support call from a friend, family or client.

Version 8.0 introduces support for Microsoft’s recently released Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems which improves compatibility further. Version 8.0 introduces support for Microsoft’s recently released Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems which improves compatibility further. The latest version supports the following operating systems:

Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Windows 8
Windows Server 2003
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows Server 2012
The program interface has not changed much. You can start it right after you have downloaded the program to your system and unpacked it there. The top half of the screen displays the supported operating system versions. To download all updates for a system check its box to do so.

All we need is a good installer that will install the updates on a system automatically lol.

Downloaded at home selected all the updates for 2003/2008/2012 and it was only a 12Gb full download.

Took it into work on a USB drive and updated loads of our servers.

 

It worked a treat :) 

 

so glad I found this tool via you guys.

They are up to 10.1 now... I am going to try it again... Last time the Flash Drive failed... I picked up a 32 GB Flash Drive... Maybe big enough for Win 7 updates as the Win 7 servers are WAY TOO SLOW Now!.

It still has support for Windows 7.  I restored a Medion laptop with Windows 7 in German.  The user has updated it to Win 10 and discovered a laser printer did not work anymore.  restored back to original while saving all his data.  Popped in a prepared USB drive, installed a German version of Office 2007, started 

Windows Offline Update

 and left it running.  I set it to auto reboot, so when I looked at it in the morning, it was allready to connect to the internet, restore his accounts and non original software.
