1) wsusou is designed to install security relevant updates onto a target machine. In your case a Windows 7 one.
:arrow: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=172
You have to configure UpdateGenerator to download the updates for Windows 7. Then copy the client-folder to the target system (it is unimportant, how you do it) and run UpdateInstaller and follow its instructions (!).

2) wsusou does not download or install any driver (see the referenced topic from above). You have to manually install them (Driver DVD, Internet research, Windows Update; that would be the order I'd use).

3) Which apps are you talking about? Windows 7 just supports Win32 executables, not the new ModernUI apps. Please tell me, what you want to install. I'll try to help you with it, even if it is off-topic as it is not concerning wsusou directly.

4) Files stored on the device: if you formatted the HDD, everything is wiped. No file is left and (if you did it the correct way) cannot be restored. The format-command cannot be undone.

Small addendum: WSUS Offline Update will not help you with your licensing problem. You need to acquire a genuine Windows 7 key. Please note that Windows 7 has a 30 day grace when freshly installed, it is completely genuine during that time and can thus install almost all updates. Only a few (like MSSE) need an activated and validated Windows to install.

Look again, it says "3 days until automatic activation". It just attempts to activate by itself (which will fail without license).

You won't go to the "Notification" (=Unlicensed) state until 30 days have passed. You'll get a progressively increasing number of messages by the OS until then.


I have it hooked to my net to see about those updates and its stuck at looking for update and will move no where under installed updates.
Installing KB3172605 manually might help (it contains the latest WU Client). Then the searches should only take a few minutes.
