    If you repair computers

    then you probably know the frustration of having to download and install updates each time. I found an app called WSUS, which lets you download the updates for several versions of Windows and MS Office, then put them on a CD/DVD/USB so you can run an offline installer. I've been using it for awhile, but it didn't occur to me to share it until now.

    The actual installs seem to take a little longer, but you still save time by not having to download more than one time.

    The problem I have is the app I used downloads them all for the laptop it's running on but when you don't have a wifi driver or the driver for wired internet it's pretty useless lol

    The “Install WSUS Updates” modules will install updates and reboot if needed. You would typically include this in a run book to patch individual agents or teams in a particular order.

    If you’d like to recursively patch a machine then run the “Install WSUS Patches (Recursive)” project. This project is useful for recursively patching a machine until its fully up-to-date (have you ever manually patched a Windows XP SP3 install?!). This can be very useful in build processes. For example, rather than waiting for WSUS to patch a machine, you could now ensure that all new RES Automation Manager agents are fully patched as soon as possible. If you have patch dependencies, then the project will also help whether a reboot is required or not.
