    Looks more like something else is causing your errors.

    Greetings,

    I am trying UpdatePack 7 21.10.13 on a Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64. my PC is an ASRock J4125-ITX

    after the first reboot, the system runs with a black background screen & UpdatePack 7 displays the following:

    Code:
    Installing updates (4)
    
    Installing KB3125574-v4 (update 1 from 1)
    KB3125574-v4 - Installation of update has been successfully completed

    at some point the PC gets rebooted without any prompt and this cycle goes over & over until I press the cancel.

    Installing directly the KB3125574-v4 windows6.1-kb3125574-v4-x64_2dafb1d203c8964239af3048b5dd4b1264cd93b9 I get the following:

    Code:
    Update for Windows (KB3125574) is already installed on this computer.
    I have run:
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    with no errors

    I have also run Tweaking.com Windows Repair in safe mode prior to the above error.

    any hints ?

    Edit: looking at the Installed Updates, UpdatePack 7, prior to the above error, managed to install two updates:
    Code:
    KB4532941
    KB4503575
    running Windows Updates manually, does work and reports 2 critical updates, one of them:
    Code:
    System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB947821) [October 2014] Download size: 264.8 MB
    but I haven't try to check if they can be installed successfully. I prefer using the UpdatePack 7

    Edit II: I remember reading somewhere that UpdatePack 7 requires this update, so I will install it, try again & followup

    Edit III: issue remains even after KB947821. Windows Updates offers no more critical updates while UpdatePack 7 has the same behavior mentioned at the top of this post

    do you run the simplix pack as
    UpdatePack7R2--++.exe ? it's critical to run it this way.

    on directory Downloads, there are two files:

    UpdatePack7R2+
    UpdatePack7R2-21.10.13

    the first, simply downloads the second which is the latest release. thereof I run the UpdatePack7R2-21.10.13

    I've used simplix on other win7 systems and it works wonderfully. but on this specific system I get this behavior

    you rename the UpdatePack7R2-21.10.13 to UpdatePack7R2--++.exe and run as administrator.

    He can keep renaming the file until his fingers fall off his hand, it's not going to help.

    UpdatePack7R2 is not a magical tool that works wonders on all machines. Usually, for it not to work there is a problem with the current windows installation itself. In which case it's easier to make backup of important data and perform a clean install with an offline serviced windows 7 image.

    currently I am experimenting with KUC W7 UpdateChecker. after all the WU installs, I am thinking on using something like this: remove_crw.cmd @ github & then trying simplix again

    Edit: apparently, there are some inconsistencies/conflicts among KUC UpdateChecker & Simplix. KUC feels it can remove some KBs while Simplix keeps reinstalling them:
    Code:
    KB#   State      Superseded   Type   Status       Version           Superseded by       Remarks

    2834140   Installed   yes       REMOVE       6.1.2.0   Update       3125574           Windows6.1-KB2834140-v2-x64.msu   This update is superseded. You can REMOVE it! All of the superseding updates are installed.
    2853587   Installed   yes   ADLDS   REMOVE       6.1.1.2   Security Update   3012660           Windows6.1-KB2853587-x64.msu   This update is superseded. You can REMOVE it! All of the superseding updates are installed.

    3161102   Superseded   yes       REMOVE       6.1.1.1   Update       na           Windows6.1-KB3161102-x64.msu   The version of this package is lower than that of the reference (6.1.2.0)! The reference version is also installed!  
    2545698   Superseded   yes       REMOVE       6.1.1.3   Update       3125574, 5005633   Windows6.1-KB2545698-x64.msu   The version of this package is lower than that of the reference (6.1.1.5)! The reference version is also installed! This update is superseded. You can REMOVE it! All of the superseding updates are installed.
    
    Finnaly, Simplix keeps trying to install KB3125574-v4 over & over again (in each fresh boot of the PC) until interrupted by hitting cancel, without any further hint, log or explanation

    Conclusion: KUC is happy, WU is happy, Simplix re-installs some KBs that KUC feels are no longer needed & keeps reinstalling KB3125574-v4

    The app I mentioned last month here fails to connect again and I have no response from the company yet. So I made the forementioned registy change that wants me to create the key manually. But am I doing it right?
    I right click > create > dword value (32bit) > name it and set it to 1.

    Because the Windows 10 update in the past three months will cause printing problems, I tested UpdatePack7r2 in October and November, and it seems that there will be printer sharing connection problems. I wonder if anyone has encountered it?

    Sorry for not mentioning that I used UpdatePack7r2-21.11.10 to integrate the ISO installation. I have tried this and cannot uninstall KB5007236

    Does anyone know how UpdatePack7r2 can skip a single KB5007236

    Got a small bug to report. After installing a simplix updatepack I think it was the one from august or september, the Programs and features window won't open normally.

    It opens, starts loading programs, then Windows Explorer goes not responding and has to be closed, killing all open Explorer windows. After that the explorer restarts and I can open Programs and features again and it will load and work normally.

    November is almost over, why bother with an aug/sep release? Even still, I saw no such issue in any of those releases.
