Windows 7 SP2 (sort of)

 When you install Windows 7 on a new system, you traditionally have to go through a long process of downloading years of updates and constantly rebooting. Not anymore: Microsoft now offers a “Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup” that essentially functions as Windows 7 Service Pack 2. With a single download, you can install the hundreds of updates at once. But there’s a catch.

 

This update package, which combines updates dating all the way back to February 2011, isn’t being made available in Windows Update. If you’re installing a Windows 7 system from scratch, you’ll need to go out of your way to download and install it. If you don’t, Windows Update will download and install the updates one by one–the slower, more tedious way.

- Looks like Microsoft had too many complaints about the VERY large amount of downloads one needs for Win 7 & Win 7 SP 1

- The article also mentions/suggests that MS will provide socalled "Cumulative Updates". But I assume those will also include the Win 10 "nagware". Right ?

- Or MS wants to know how popular this update is.

- One question remains. Is this available for non english versions of Win 7 as well ?

Figures that Windows Update would be the tedious way. One of the reasons to also make a slipstreamed install DVD for the OS - Win7 instructions.

 

Yes but this is for all updates up to present time, not service pack 1.

 

(Also there are some 404's in the links on that page)

- "Tweaking.com" also had a thread on this topic.

- The Windows 10 nagware doesn't seem to be included. That was one of those "Optional" updates and those don't seem to be included.

I was wondering about the Win 10 nagware.  Thanks for clearing that up.

FYI

In that tweaking link (post 5 above), it says that the telemetry enablers ARE included. 

I'm following this win 10 stuff pretty closely but have not yet started the updating, so don't know for sure. 

Would be great to hear from someone who has done it.

 

Edit:  It says over at Ask VG that the telemetry enablers ARE NOT included: 

"So this rollup package includes all security and non-security recommended updates but it doesn't contain any Get Windows 10 (GWX) or telemetry related update as far as I know."

But it seems to say over at wilders that some ARE (read on down a bit):

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

- I think that IF I am going to install the "Roll Up", I will do a clean fresh re-install of Win 7 SP 1 first.

- The "How to Geek" article contains one small error. Update KB 3020369 was released in april 2015 and not in april 2016.

- "How To Geek" provides info on how to slipstream the "Roll Up".

- Last april I had to re-install Win 7 SP 1. But I didn't install all the "Optional" Updates. And one of those "Optional" updates was the update that installed the Win 10 nagware. The name of that nagware update was KB 3035583.

- The "Happy Elder Geek" who started the "Roll Up" thread on the "Tweaking.com" website/forum (See weblink above) has updated that thread and now reports that the "Roll Up" didn't work on 3 other Win 7 systems. Perhaps one needs to have a Win 7 system that hasn't been "tampered with" (too much).

- In the name of "Roll Up" there was the addition "v4". In other words it took MS already four attempts to get a stable Update. Perhaps MS will release more (& better) versions of that "Roll Up" update in the future.

- I downloaded the "Roll Up" and that other update but I will NOT install the "Roll Up" any time soon. I will do that only when I decide to re-install Win 7. NOT one second sooner.

- MS issued a bugfix for this "Convenience Roll Up" package. They forgot to add one file to the package.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3181988

 

although "SFC" was able to fix that bug.

- I didn't install that "Convenience Roll Up" package and I still was offered that update. Odd. Very odd.
