Thread: Installing manually Windows Update

    Installing manually Windows Update

    Failing to install manually kb files (.msu), I found this trick on the web.
    Do you think it can install msu files in this way ?

    "expand -f:* "C:\file.msu" %TEMP%"

    then :

    "start /w /IP /m:%TEMP%\file.cab"

    I found also this command on Microsoft site
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934307/ : "pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml"

    Hello,

    Yes, KB934307 should help you manually install an update.

    Re: Installing manually Windows Update

    Thanks for your answer.
    But I don't know which of these 2 commands should I use after extracting the
    file in a temp folder :
    "start /w /IP /m:%TEMP%\file.cab" or "pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml"

    These are the 3 files I need to install : KB958644, 957200, 953155. I run
    Vista Premium SP1.

    Re: Installing manually Windows Update

    pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml" -- is what you would use to put the file in
    the temporary folder


    To install an .msu update package, run Wusa.exe together with the full path
    of the file. For example, if the Windows6.0-KB934307-x86.msu file is in the
    D:\934307 folder, type the following command at a command prompt to install
    the update package:
    wusa.exe d:\934307\Windows6.0-KB934307-x86.msu

    Re: Installing manually Windows Update

    Thanks

    What is then the difference between "expand -f:* "C:\file.msu" %TEMP%" and
    "pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml".

    In fact, "wusa.exe" command didn't work for me. This is why I'm looking for
    an other way to install my msu files.
