How to install drivers and other optional updates from Windows Update
 

Even if you have specified that all important and recommended updates from Windows Update to automatically download and install, you still might not get all the updated drivers available for the device. For example, the optional updates include updated drivers that are available for installed hardware or devices. Optional updates are not downloaded and installed automatically by Windows. However, you will be notified when optional updates are available.

Check to retrieve all available updates for the devices Windows Update regularly for updates, including optional updates. You can check the available updates and then select individual updates in the list of updates found by Windows for your computer. To do this follow these instructions:

Click here to open Windows Update.

On the left pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows is wanted for the latest updates for your computer.

If updates are available, click on the link in the box under Windows Update to see more information about each update. Each of the types of updates may contain drivers.

Search the Select the updates to be installed for updates for your hardware devices, select the check boxes for the driver to install, and then click OK. There may be no driver updates are available.

--> this works not on my pc, there is no box for "drivers and other softwareupdates"

before i installed the new 7, i had an advanced update box... now is ...nothing.

On the Windows Update page Install Updates. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

- What did the "Advanced Update" do in Vista ? Download new drivers for some hardware components ? And/or download updates for other MS software ? e.g. MS Office ?

 

- I still use MS Works/Office 2003 on my Win 7 laptop and when I activated "Microsoft Updates" (NOT "Windows Updates") then I received the updates for MS Office 2003. MS still had them.

- I also received (after the latest re-install) driver software for my touchpad & screen hardware. And I received an update for my laser printer after installing the software. But I didn't receive new software updates for e.g. the network adaptor. Like I did when I still had my XP laptop.

 

The story above suggests that there aren't any driver updates available for your hardware. I also installed my Win 7 system using an unpacked *.ISO file from a USB stick.

all that 'extra' software like Visual Studio, C++ Redistributable, SQL Server, XML Parser etc will be installed automatically from the 3rd party software when it gets installed.

 

for example, installing AVG will also install Visual Studio.

- I tried to find "Microsoft Update" again today but it seems this feature/website/ ........ has been pulled.

 

- Did you perhaps install win 7 on a system that came with Vista ? Then I can imagine that MS won't offer those updates/drivers for your Win 7 system. Perhaps the manufacturer of that hardware has those updates on his website ?

- MS has a special part where one can download updates for MS Office. This the german home page for MS Office products:

http://www.microsoft.com/de-de/download/office.aspx

and use the search feature.

 

But will MS allow those updates to be installed on your Win 7 system ? My experiences with MS Office 2003 in combination with Win 7 doesn't make me very hopeful. All things put together, it seems MS, this time, is very determined to push/force the user to other/newer (& paid for) MS products.

- yes, I thought it by myself that such a thing could be, before I had even extended the updates for windows 7 activated

- this pc was an xp-pc :-) but no problem, it goes fine with w7 if the driver installed

- thank you for your downloadlink :-)

 

my printer and soundcard has been supported since xp, vista too and w7. also with different office-suiten. on the w7 system is office 2010 installed, but no updates comes, but on vista i have updates downloaded ;-)

 

i dont know, was wrong with advanced updates from microsoft... :wacko:  i have taken the updates from vista office 2010 ;-)

My MS Works Suite 2003 (installed on my Win 7 laptop) got corrupted today. I was forced to re-install the entire Suite. (still have the DVD). Tried "Microsoft Updates" again but that seems to be finally gone. But I was surprised to see that Windows Update offered ALL the updates for the MS Works Suite 2003 without any problem.

 

So, if you still have the Original MS Office DVD then I would presume that a (removal &) fresh re-install of MS Office would trigger Windows Update to offer all the updates again.

this w7-version is from dell... perhaps that's why MS refuses advanced updates for other programs.

 

by the way: apparently this version of Windows 7 does not work as a suitable upgrade version to Windows 10. so far I have no icon on the taskbar with KB 3035583 -> Notification for Windows 10

- About 3 to 4 weeks ago I was forced to re-install MS Works 2003. But this time MS did't offer any of the Office/Works updates anymore. I assume this will also be the case for any newer MS Office version older than Office 2013/Office 365.

- For a long time Win 7 & Vista users were able to LEGALLY download the installation file(s) for their OS. But those downloads also (seem) to have been removed.from the internet. (I still have a Win 7 Pro ISO for my system).

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/566303/microsoft-digital-river-iso-downloads-gone-for-good/

 

(Are there any Win 8 *.iso downloads available any more ?)

 

In other words, MS wants to "discourage" any re-installation of XP, Vista, Win 7 (& Win 8 ??). And wants to push the users to Win 10. From a commercial standpoint I can understand that but I am sure MS will, using this policy, make more enemies than new friends.

All the Digital River iso downloads have gone now. Not possible to download an iso anymore unless you follow strict  Microsoft guidelines now eg.... Win 7 iso download..

Only works with Retail keys, software you bought yourself, not for an operating system pre-loaded onto a machine by Dell or HP for example.

 

It goes without saying of course that any links to illegal downloads will be removed :)
