    Correct me if i'm wrong but I was under the impression that all the latest updates
    are blocked from being installed on a PC that has new architecture cpu, something like from Intel 7th generation and up.

    @venejo

    only installation via WU or msu file is blocked
    using dism.exe + cab file is permitted

    But I have them all installed fine just now as .msu (have them all for offline use)
    and didn't got any "strange" message and WU now is with zero updates left (green) ;)
    Talking about an Intel 10th generation cpu.

    Did you installed them together on fresh installation, or you OS was already updated beyond 2018?

    maybe they gave up and removed the block

    Did a fresh installation of Win8.1 VL x64 iso (IR5 updated) and everything was installed manually since I already had them except from this month's
    Rollup and .NET cu which also installed fine.

    As I said before, I did not tried any other language than english, yet. I will try some other language, I just need time.

    You can try Spanish ISO, but first do it in VM or if You have some spare computer for fun, to make sure that everything is fine.

    If You going to try, please post result.

    @3zero3 aren't all updates language independent, except the specific language packs for i.e. dotnetfx4x?

    The language pack has not been superseded. What happens is that WHDownloader only lists the NET48-LangPacks.txt file not the language packs themselves so if you have the language pack inside the updates folder WHDownloader will not find it in the updates list and will list it as superseded or old.

    Offtopic: What theme are you using for Win 8.1? :D

    If you know how to determine the installed language, maybe you can put in those LPs too?
    Or users can put it next to your exe, like simplix does with WAs too?

    Not sure if this will work
    Code:
    RunProgram="%%P:hidcon:CMD /C for %%# in (ar-SA,cs-CZ,da-DK,de-DE,es-ES,fi-FI,fr-FR,he-IL,hu-HU,it-IT,ja-JP,ko-KR,nb-NO,nl-NL,pl-PL,pt-BR,pt-PT,ru-RU,sv-SE,tr-TR,zh-CN,zh-HK,zh-TW) do if exist %7zSfxFolder36%\%%#\explorer.exe.mui %7zSfxFolder37%\Dism.exe /Online /NoRestart /Add-Package /PackagePath:NDP48-%%P-%%#.cab"   
    
    it would need to rename all .NET 4.8 LPs cab files
    NDP48-architecture-language.cab
    NDP48-x64-nl-NL.cab

    maybe it's easier to add and run small batch script instead
    Code:
    RunProgram="waitall:hidcon:NET48LPs.cmd"
    the script can contain a longer code so you don't have to rename the cab files

    I installed the pack on a W 8.1 Embedded Industry Enterprise Spanish x64 and the installation went smoothly and WU only offered 6 updates: MRT, Defender definitions and KB3080149 + KB3150513 + KB2976978 + KB3044374 Awesome pack! Gracias
