Cumulative Updates and Patches ISO for Windows OS and Windows Servers OS ?

Is there a way to download the cumulative Windows Updates (and patches) for Windows 7, Windows, 8, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012 (all) as a single file or ISO ? I thought that I read about nine months ago that Microsoft offered a link to download the monthly updated Windows Updates in an ISO format, but I am unable to find that. A site has over a dozen new Windows installs to update but only has a 2M pipe, so a single download would work well. They do not have WSUS server, this is a one time process, and only links directly from Microsoft could be used ... TIA ...



Microsoft has drifted away from rollups and is now offering patches on an ongoing basis (several different update days in any given month lately).

Further the updates for Windows 7 are different from Windows 8 (I have both machines) and are likely different for Server 2008 and Server 2012. I have these servers but I have not looked. The update stream for Windows 10 is different again.

So there is no single source, and I don't know of any rollup file that would work.

My advice is to schedule the updates over (say) a two week period at off hours.

You can set machines to do automatic updates and workstations (assuming standard user mode) will update upon restart at some orderly time. Similar for servers.

Yes, separate update files or DVDs for each OS would be okay. But it would be problematic if the machines could not be updated within a few hours so the Windows Updates option on each machine would not be a good option for this site. The plan was to download the updates/patches for each OS from a site that has a faster Internet connection, burn them to an ISO or install DVD, and then transport them to the other location (if possible). It would be unfortunate if Microsoft did not offer this option ...

As I noted, Microsoft (by design) has stopped offering roll up files. So you really do need to do it as now prescribed by Microsoft.



I use WSUSOffline (http://www.wsusoffline.net) and create iso's or usb disks



I thought about WSUS but the asker does not have a WSUS server.
