Just to elaborate boco's statement a little bit more ;): WSUS Offline is intended to install ALL available security updates, regardless of the system's patch level to get it to a patch level defined by WSUS Offline and time of patching, respectively. If you want to select which update(s) to install, either stick with Windows Update or look for a software that allows such selection.

Another possibility is to select the downloaded update (KB1234567) from the respected repository and install it, e.g. with the command "dism.exe / online / Add-Package / Packagepath:Path-to-the-cab-file" on the selected machine.

Sorry, it was late for me, and I at least wanted to answer the question. Hey, it's even the shortest possible post with a meaning! ;)

For selecting updates to download and install while still being able to use wsusscn2.cab (aka offline scan), use Windows Update MiniTool. It's my day-to-day updating tool used for anything beyond WOU.
Here's the MG link (so you don't have to deal with russian forums): http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... itool.html

For getting the wsusscn2.cab, use the command

Code: Select all
powershell.exe Start-BITSTransfer http://download.windowsupdate.com/microsoftupdate/v6/wsusscan/wsusscn2.cab .\wsusscn2.cab


from the WUMT directory. The following, alternative command will do the same, but might not be available depending on OS:

Code: Select all
bitsadmin.exe /TRANSFER WSUSOU_Get_Catalog /DOWNLOAD http://download.windowsupdate.com/microsoftupdate/v6/wsusscan/wsusscn2.cab C:\WSUSSCN2.CAB
Microsoft update catalog: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/
