    Ah. I reran the simplix update application a few times and it did install most of the updates, though there were still a few I needed to install manually. It did install kb4012218 (or kb4012215, I'm not sure which) - I uninstalled it immediately afterwards and no lasting damage seems to have been done, but it might be a good idea to have this removed if possible as other users elsewhere have reported that it has disabled WIndows Update functionality in their newer systems.

    Those updates you installed manually after using simplix pack were the so called telemetry updates.

    And as long as you don't have a kaby lake cpu, that update doesn't affect your install.

    I'm surprised people using SimplixUpdatePack are actually interested in updating through WU... Just ignore it. Wait for Simplix releases. There's practically no difference between running WU once a month or downloading a pack of updates once a month.

    Most of us (I think) use it to "catch up", not to replace. Especially those of us that use it for offline integration...

    I noticed when I pass the '/Index=*' parameter, the program unpacks all the cab packages (default='%windir%\temp'), but after every index deletes the files and again unpacks the packages, wasting time.
    This adds up alot to the total time of integration and strains the drive, since in the end it might have written around 2.5GB.

    Is this a bug or are these package files different for every index?

    Is there a switch so it does not delete the unpacked cab files?
    Ofcourse this must not cause it to select packages for editions not applicable.


    Also is it a bad idea to use a SSD (such as the MX300) as drive for the process?
    I mean like will this process cause the drive's live to become shorter, like very very much shorter?

    It is by design of Simplix, you simply could do only the starter (x86) or home basic (x64) index and afterwards offline upgrade them to higher sku's.

    Would be nice of the pack stop harassing me with the IE updates, before installing the rest of the package, this pack installed in 3 times, 3 restarts... or simply something i did not catch ...

    That's good. Will have to try it out. I think the previous may have been broke because I couldn't install a MS Hotfix. Tried clean install twice & it wouldn't install.
    Went back to my March build & of course no issue..
