[Solved] Where to download Microsoft Update?

Post by code65536 » Wed Aug 22, 2007 4:04 am

There's a new version of Windows Update / Microsoft Update available. I have it installed on my VPC, but I don't want to scrape the files post-install because that's inelegant, so if possible, I'd like to be able to directly download and save the update package from Microsoft. Anyone know where?

Thanks!

Unfortunately, the standalone packages that MSDN references are still at build 374, and the latest build that I had been updated to is 381...

Edit: Nevermind. After examining the WU logs, I was able to find the original source cabs for build 381. :)

Here's a zip of all the original digitally-signed source cabs. The timestamps of the .cab files as reported by Microsoft's server are preserved. Also included in the zip is a list of the URLs if you want to download them yourself (change the en to zhcn for the S. Chinese version).

New version of Windows Update Agent?
I downloaded the
http://update.microsoft.com/redist/wuredist.cab
file and checked its digital signature. I think that it contains link to download a new version/build.
