But in case you have a Windows 7 Computer without internet access and you want to update it you may face difficulties. Also if you have more than one Windows 7 PC and you want to download the Windows Updates only once and using it to update your all Windows 7 Desktop / Laptop PC.
In this article I will share two tools which allow you to download Windows Updates on a PC which is connected to the Internet and save those updates and re-use these updates to Install on the Windows 7 desktop / laptop computers which are not connected to Internet or otherwise.
We have already reviewed similar tools to Save and Re-Use Downloaded Windows Update Files but they are not Windows 7 Compatible. In this article I will review two tools which support Windows 7 32bit and 68 bit versions.
