Doesn't wsus offline download the updates from MS? Presumably that won't be happening after August 3rd.

Afraid it doesn't help.

wsusoffline gives the impression that it will update the installation. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case.

What's interesting is that, after I installed the ISO from Ex_Brit, Windows update found like 5 updates and installed them. I believe that's what took me to the .6003 installation but I'd have to review the other thread on this. I won't install the 2008 Server updates since that's what I was doing when the MBR got screwed up. Note that I have 64 bit.

You’re running build 6003 but you won’t install any Server 2008 updates!? That’s a good one wither 3. Yeah, you should probably “review the other thread” sometime.

I couldn’t agree more!!! :shock: My memory might be just a tad better than yours though. In a nutshell, you are running build 6003 because you took Microsoft’s advice instead of listening to this forum’s naysayers. (The ironic part is that you are nevertheless one of this forum’s naysayers.) Didn’t you have to buy a new hard drive to finally solve your MBR problem? What if it was a hardware problem that had nothing to do with Server 2008 updates? I also recall that you found PUPs on your previous installation shortly before you concluded post hoc that Server 2008 updates were the cause of your problems.

Hi SIW2:

Thanks for testing, even if the update wasn't successful. I tried posting in the WSUS Offline Update forum a few days ago to ask if ESR versions of this tool will still work with Vista SP2 as of 03-Aug-2020 when Microsoft starts enforcing their SHA-2 code signing policy but my forum account has been deactivated (I haven't posted there for a while). I tried to reactivate my account but my reactivation code never arrived in my Inbox; I also tried creating a new forum account using a different username and email address and that activation code didn't arrive either, so I can't even PM the Forum Mods to ask what's going on.

I did find an a pinned post called wsusoffline "Community Edition" discussing "the future of WSUS Offline Update" which states in part:

"An adjusted version of wsusoffline 12.0 and 11.9.1 ESR, which get current updates for their static definitions, is available here:
12.0 -> https://gitlab.com/wsusoffline/wsusoffline/-/releases/12.0_CommunityEdition
11.9.1 ESR -> 11.9.1esr_CommunityEdition · [email protected] / WSUS Offline Update
This version ist equal to the official wsusoffline-builds, exept for it downloading its static definitions from GitLab instead of wsusoffline.net...
"
At this point I have no idea if this ESR v11.9.1 "Community Edition" posted on GitLab actually behaves differently than the latest "official" ESR v11.9.1 build (rel. 12-Mar-2020) at WSUS Offline Update - Update Microsoft Windows and Office without an Internet connection or why this "Community Edition" was even created.

I have updated my installation manually - took a little while to do all editions of both bit versions.

It would be good if there was something like simplix update pack for vista.

My updated media installs with these included ( this is home premium x64 )

WU shows 3 optional only. NetFrame 4.5.2 is not integrated, because 4.6.1 ( or higher for the more adventurous ) can be installed afterwards

This might be a way to do it, but it requires having the updates already

That is not how I did it, but it looks like it might be a better bet than trying to get wsusoffline to install them.

Another way:

Integrate 151 updates into the install.wim image.

Install to a spare partition

Press ctrl+alt+F3 at the first oobe screen to reboot into audit mode.

Run the 4 "speedups" - those can't be successfuly integrated.

Reboot.

Install the rest of the updates, and any drivers , rebooting where necessary ( still in audit mode)

When done, tick the generalise box and select reboot to oobe.

Don't reboot back into that vista partition - instead boot into another os.

Capture the updated vista partition into an install.wim file using any number of tools. I prefer to use wimlib.

Too bad the average user is even less likely to have a custom ISO than a Macrium image. How to break the bad news to them when they post? My writing seems to offend some people, so I have resolved to use more emojis:

I deeply regret to inform you that Microsoft no longer provides updates for Windows Vista because their old hash algorithm was insecure. Have a nice day! :D:

Hi SIW2:

As far as I know all those updates are dual-signed (SHA-1 and SHA-2).

When I read the Microsoft announcement SHA-1 Windows Content to be Retired August 3, 2020 I assumed they were only referring to updates and other content on the Microsoft Download Center with digital certificates that only use a SHA-1 hash. Does anyone know for certain that dual-signed (SHA-1 / SHA-2) content is also going to be removed from the Microsoft Download Center, and if so does this affect the updates on the Microsoft Update Catalog and Windows Update servers and as well?

I also checked the first few in my my pre-integrate list and they seem to download fine.

Windows patch Loader still offers to download all.

Might be the end for vista updates via WU now. Getting errors trying WU today 7 August 2020.

Looks like the simplest thing is to use installation media that has already been updated.
Or maybe somebody will make an update pack. Winfuture.de has one for x86, but they haven't changed it since 2014. Maybe somebody else will make one.
The .cab files are still available via windows patch loader.

Aren't the ISOs provided by Ex_Brit suitable or are you talking about installing the server 2008 updates?

Much depends on how long Microsoft permits activation for legacy versions of Windows that are no longer served by Windows Update. (We await the OP’s next post in Error Code 0x80072F8F when trying to activate Windows Vista in that regard.) For those with existing Vista installations, an image or better yet a clone of the system drive has long been my recommendation.
