I have downloaded and used this update pack when installing a fresh version of Windows 7. It installs many and most updates from SP1 to sometime in September I think. This is the info posted here in the Windows 7 forum: forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/45005-Simplix-Pack-to-update-Live-Win7-System-Integrate-hotfixes-into-Win7-distribution Is there anything similar for updating a new install of Windows 8.1? Would make life much easier, I tried looking in this forum but didnt see anything. Thanks for any help!!!!
