Installing manually Windows Update
Failing to install manually kb files (.msu), I found this trick on the web.
Do you think it can install msu files in this way ?

"expand -f:* "C:\file.msu" %TEMP%"

then :

"start /w /IP /m:%TEMP%\file.cab"

I found also this command on Microsoft site
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934307/ : "pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml"

Hello,

Yes, KB934307 should help you manually install an update.

Re: Installing manually Windows Update
Thanks for your answer.
But I don't know which of these 2 commands should I use after extracting the
file in a temp folder :
"start /w /IP /m:%TEMP%\file.cab" or "pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml"

These are the 3 files I need to install : KB958644, 957200, 953155. I run
Vista Premium SP1.

Re: Installing manually Windows Update
pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml" -- is what you would use to put the file in
the temporary folder


To install an .msu update package, run Wusa.exe together with the full path
of the file. For example, if the Windows6.0-KB934307-x86.msu file is in the
D:\934307 folder, type the following command at a command prompt to install
the update package:
wusa.exe d:\934307\Windows6.0-KB934307-x86.msu

Re: Installing manually Windows Update
Thanks

What is then the difference between "expand -f:* "C:\file.msu" %TEMP%" and
"pkgmgr.exe /n:%TEMP%\file.xml".

In fact, "wusa.exe" command didn't work for me. This is why I'm looking for
an other way to install my msu files.
