Haven't run this for a while, ran it this morning, it updated to ver 9.5.1

Clicked 'Start' and it did its stuff, I left it running and when I came back, it has completed successfully - that's great!

But later, I realised that I've missed out an item and clicked 'Start' again and it spit out the following:


What have I done wrong?

I restarted it, even rebooted my PC.

You may have to delete the folders then extract it again as well

Installed the latest version but couldn't figure out how to download it to my USB flash drive so that I can just plug it to any machine and update it.

As long as the updategenerator.exe and the folders are on the USB drive ( as shown below) it will download automatically to the USB drive. To apply to another computer plug in the USB drive, open the client folder, double click updateinstaller.exe and away it will go.


BUT ----- hope you dont want it for XP -- Since its now end of life the updater wont work, comes back with unsupported System, only goes as far back as Vista.

Oh, no. I haven't got all those files there, here is what I've got:


How do you get it there? Can I just copy it over, or, unzip to the USB drive?

At great personal expense ( in other words put off opening my beer) :p Downloaded the latest version from http://download.wsusoffline.net/ In the zipped file are the following -

You would extract the contents someplace then copy to a USB drive. Double click the updategenerator.exe, select what you want to download, ( tick boxes) then click Start, and it does the rest. Inside the client folder is the updateinstaller.exe used to install on another PC.

Depending on what you select when updating will depend on what files/ folders will be created, Eg. The o2K10/13 are Office updates.
