Offline OS Update

I have come across an excellent command line tool which can perform an offline OS update (eg. from build 22000.100 to 22000.184). It can be used with files previously downloaded from UUP Dump (or from any other source, as long as proper SSU and LCU files are available). Unlike with other methods, like In-Place Upgrade, there is the progress bar, and also a short message shown in case the update process fails for some reason. "Incompatible hardware" can be updated as well. The tool is called Windows NT 10.0 Updates Installer and was created by abbodi1406 (a nickname very well known in Windows geeks community).

The description can be found in BatUtil/W10UI/ section and the zip archive is WHD/scripts/W10UI_10.12.zip at the link below:


When using the tool with UUP Dump files you need to do the following:

1) Copy two files to \UUPs directory (there is no need to edit the .ini file)

W10UI.cmd
W10UI.ini

2) Run W10UI.cmd as admin.

Here are a few screenshots:





The tool can also be used with .msu files, which are now available with Build 22000.194. Those updates have a new format and require W10UI v10.12. Just place the two files listed in p.1) above in the same directory as msu file and run the cmd.


More up-to-date information about W10UI can be found here:

Oooohhh, I love several of his other tools.

I need to find a machine that needs updating and then try this on there.

This would be interesting as I can DL the files from UUP Dump really quickly, and generate an .ISO pretty quickly, but then installing it this way is something that is really intriguing.

Thanks for the heads up!

If you skip ISO and WinRE you will get all necessary UUP Dump files even quicker. Here is my ConvertConfig.ini:

Code:
[convert-UUP]
AutoStart    =1
AddUpdates   =1
Cleanup      =0
ResetBase    =0
NetFx3       =0
StartVirtual =0
wim2esd      =0
SkipISO      =1
SkipWinRE    =1
ForceDism    =0
RefESD       =0

[create_virtual_editions]
vAutoStart   =1
vDeleteSource=0
vPreserve    =0
vwim2esd     =0
vSkipISO     =0
vAutoEditions=Enterprise

The ISO is not required just to install the updates and WinRE is only needed if you really use it. Windows Recovery Environment in a clean installation of Win11 with SkipWinRE=1 has fewer options than the standard version and looks as follows (it can be accessed with Ctrl+Shift+(Power/Restart):

Absolutely agree. This could end up being a game changer.

The tool can also be used with .msu files, which are now available with Build 22000.194. Those updates have a new format and require W10UI v10.12. I have updated my original post accordingly.

In a van down by the river
Used it in Win 10. Worked flawlessly. I've been using tools from Abodi for many years. He is a pro at code.

Wish I had learned it. Saves a lot of work. We can be thankful that guys like that share their work. ;)
