    That's not the updatepack itself, that's about my ISO Creation tool and that line means the Modern AiO ISO can't be used for upgrades, meaning all manual setup files are removed.

    The Legacy ISO can be used for (inplace/repair) upgrading:
    All installs can be updated after install by

    Two (2) questions about the Update Packs:

    1) Does each new edition include all former updates, or does one have to collect all editions and incrementally install them from earliest to latest?

    1) Is there a dedicated "Official Simplix Pack Download Page" link, where all these versions are located for download, instead of sorting through many pages and/or threads and even other websites (i.e. 7forums)? A Google search simply throws more confusion into getting the latest information without hours of looking and still having doubt, as well as possible getting a fake download with bad stuff in it.

    Thank you.

    Yes, latest includes all previous stuff (since Jan 17. 2021 only the rollups are renewed monthly).
    I maintain the OP, it's uptodate.

    Thank you.

    Is the simplix pack file latest .exe file something I can simply double click, and it does all the installation automatically?

    I have a fresh install of Win7 Ultimate x64 sitting next to me (another desktop) with a fresh installed desktop, waiting for me to do something with it.

    I am hesitant to start installing drivers and do what I normally did before, but if the Simplix Pack is a "double-Click" fully automatic installer, then I'll give it a shot after making a backup of the fresh install with Acronis.

    I really do apologize about my questions if they come across as this, that or the other, but hope your fine tool is a "double-clicker".

    I am looking for a simply tutorial for really simple-minded noobs like me, as I type this.

    Thanks, Enthousiast.

    PS: can you recommend a thread here for step by step installs in order after installing a fresh Windows 7 OS; i.e. driver order, .NET and MS C++ items in logical order? All I know is that chipset drivers should be one of the first things that get installed, but now this Simplix Update Pack has me wondering if this should be installed before Chipset drivers and subsequent drivers. Sorry for all the questions, but your kindness in responding is like a saint with a cup of water to a thirsty man.

    Download the WA addon files here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...-install-wim-esd-creation.79421/#post-1516362
    And put them next to the updatepack and run the updatepack, it will install the WA addons too.

    To create an uptodate ISO using simplix updatepacks check this thread:
    https://forums.mydigitallife.net/th...-aio-iso-with-install-wim-esd-creation.79421/

    And the updatepack installation has no relation to any driver installation, you can run it before or after you installed the drivers.

    Place all 4 files inside the same folder, then run the update pack.
    You can name the folder whatever you want.

    Literally next to the updatepack, in the same folder.
    Just put all files at the desktop and run the renamed updatepack as instructed.
    I showed you were to download the updatepack, from the OP of the thread.

    Obsolete info.

    Perfect.

    Thank you. I'll give it a go on the raw install in a few minutes.

    For an x64 system, only the x64 WAs are needed. Due to the WOW6432 feature of Windows, both x86 and x64 resources will be covered.

    Im not againt simplizx, but the inner working is unknown, sin ce he uses a modified (iirc winamp install system..} here are interesting rocceesses and i wanted learn how do it manually. Its a black box for me, which i would like ma bit more open solution...

    Its definitely the easiest way, but what the pack does and how is a mystery, which for me as someone curious is a bit ....too in secrecy. No way to affect the updates added.

    It's been basically vetted on both ozone forum, where simplix develops the pack, and here, where there's enough competent people who would notice if anything was... iffy.
    More "open" methods would be manually integrating updates and blocking any relevant telemetry with scripts or policies.
