Ignore OS detection on 9.2.4 ESR?

Ignore OS detection on 9.2.4 ESR?

Postby Stonent » 02.02.2019, 23:00

I already use the latest WSUS Offline Update for Windows 10 but I find frequently on some systems that have been upgraded from 7 to 10 it finds some legacy MS applications that it wants to update (office related mainly). So I downloaded 9.2.4 to do the legacy updates and I selected just 2003, and 2007 Office versions but it won't run on Windows 10 because the OS is unsupported.

Is there a way to make 9.2.4 run on 10 just for the purpose of looking for missing legacy updates and ignore any OS specific ones?

I just wanted to bump this one since it had been 2 months and hadn't had a response. It would be beneficial if I could use it just for updating some older office apps.

As not officially supported, here a mod:

- open .\client\cmd\SetTargetEnvVars.cmd
- search for these lines
Code: Select all
if %OS_VER_MAJOR% GTR 6 goto SetOfficeName
if %OS_VER_MINOR% GTR 3 goto SetOfficeName

- replace with
Code: Select all
if %OS_VER_MAJOR% GTR 10 goto SetOfficeName

- search for these line
Code: Select all
:SetOfficeName

- insert before
Code: Select all
:Windows10.0
rem *** Windows 10 ***
set OS_NAME=w100
set OS_SP_VER_TARGET_MAJOR=0
set WOU_ENDLESS=2
goto SetOfficeName


- open .\client\cmd\DoUpdate.cmd
- search for
Code: Select all
:SkipSPInst

- add before
Code: Select all
:SPw100

Looks like in addition to the changes I needed to create a w100-x64\glb folder.
