Hi all,

I have a PC with Vista (x86/32bit) that I use offline (ie not connected to the internet) and want to patch it. I have tried various methods to download updates as executables from my other XP-based machine connected with broadband: Windows Updates Downloader (this only has updates up to March this year) and AutoPatcher (this is history - literally - 404 error on downloads page!).

Is there anywhere else I can download the updates from (preferably as EXEs)?

I would also like to do the same thing with Office 2007 if pos.

All help appreciated.

Get them with the XP PC and copy them across.

Youre right Autopatcher is dead.

I could send them to you somehow online. BUT the whole lot, altogether arent small.

But, I've only got 128k upload but it's faster downloading.

Actually Vista updates are WAY smaller than most of the XP ones.

I've just zipped all of the x32 vista updates I've got, and the zip file is 106mb

Thanks for the offer Speedy.

You could send them through snail mail on a CD if you'd prefer (if you want to follow through with this please PM me).

I want to have those updates as well please. I have the Autopatcher ones but I would rather have the Microsoft .exe installable updates. If you have them please zip them all in one file and upload it to some site like http://depositfiles.com/en/


thanks waiting

Nah I'm logged into enough sites now.

I'm sick of logging into these sites.

If you didnt have to sign it, I may have uploaded them.

Why not download them yourself?

Its most probably not a legit version and it wont validate.

Could be ?

You can install Vista and it will update without activation for 21 days I think it is.
