    In what folder are Windows updates kept?

    I have configured automatic Updates for download in my standalone system at daily basis but i don't know where the updates are getting saved. Is there anyone here who can point me to the right folder, where the downloaded files might be getting saved??? thanks in advance.

    The downloaded updates are stored in %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder no matter you use a standalone AU client or WSUS client for downloading. However i wanted to add that installing WSUS/WU/AU updates directly isn't a good idea, instead use the Windows Update API for installing them. In case you have any further query regrading Windows Update API then you can feel free to ask.
