hey guys i've experienced brain freeze today on something simple.
i'm trying to make a simple batch to extract the hotfixes/secupdate
exe files to their own directory.

%1 /U /X:%~dp0\Extracted_Update

so the above will extract the hotfix to the current directory in the folder Extracted_Update.
how do i have it extract to the current directory in the name of the hotfix/secupdate
less the ".exe"

working too hard, guess you only notice when you can't remember easy tricks from the past.

%~a1    -   expands %1 to file attributes
%~t1    -   expands %1 to date/time of file
%~z1    -   expands %1 to size of file


%~dp1    -   expands %1 to a drive letter and path only
%~nx1    -   expands %1 to a file name and extension only
%~dp$PATH:1    -   searches the directories listed in the PATH
environment variable for %1 and expands to the
drive letter and path of the first one found.
%~ftza1    -   expands %1 to a DIR-like output line

The info OP posted can be found by 'for /?'.

The usage of %1 ~ %9 is totally same as usage of for's variable.

Good to know! Thanks..

By the way yumeyao, just so we all know, do you have any future plans for updating any of your great addons?

I can understand that there are more important things to do in one's life and I would like to thank you for your efforts and valuable contributions that you have made in these forums.

Is it safe to just add the usual registry entries for KB2686509, or is kblChecker.dll necessary somehow? The Microsoft Update website accepts that the update is installed with just the entries.

Microsoft wrote:
[After running the update and receiving a failure message, the Faultykeyboard.log] file contains information about registered keyboard layout files that are not in the %Windir%\System32 folder.

Will removing keyboard layouts with nLite affect this update?

Without the DLL, Rick, MU complains unless the following registry entry exists:

Code:
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Hotfix\KB2686509","Installed",0x10001,1

kblChecker.dll was deleted from my system by the update package after it was run with the /B:SP2QFE switch.

there is no QFE for the update it is general so the switch won't work.
normally it is placed in the C:\WINDOWS\$hf_mig$\KB2686509.
like i posted above i placed it in C:\Windows\System32

The file "kblchecker.dll" is used when the update is being installed to check "something":

Code:
[Prereq.IsMachineSafe.Section]
    PresentOp = CheckCustom,,kblchecker.dll, IsMachineSafe
    EqualOp = CheckCustom,,kblchecker.dll, IsMachineSafe,,"==",1


but it's not installed anywhere. I don't really know what this "update" is supposed to do because there is nothing in the update.inf to be added to the registry, except for entries related to the update itself.

From the article, the DLL seems to check for registered keyboard layout files that do not reside in system32. If none exist outside system32 then the update installs, otherwise it fails. The article goes on to describe how the user must copy the files into system32 when the update fails.

I'm just wondering what exactly this update adds to the system because there's nothing in the update.inf. I mean what does it do except for installing itself? Rolling Eyes

The article explains it better than I can. In short, the update package only performs a check of the installed layout files, nothing more. If the check passes then the entry I mentioned above is added to the registry. If the check fails then the user has work to do, and the registry entry is not added.

Windows Update Agent 3.0 v7.6.7600.256 is included in WSUS update KB2720211. Thanks go to submix8c on MSFN for the link.

How to extract with 7-Zip:
  1. Extract WUSSetup.msp from WSUS-KB2720211-x64.exe.
  2. Extract PCW_CAB_SUS from WUSSetup.msp and add CAB file extension.
  3. Extract largest file in PCW_CAB_SUS.cab and add CAB extension (f_7d330e57.BE2E96D2_4460_4371_84DE_4148273456C7.cab).
  4. All needed cabinets for XPx86 English should be in "AU\x86\NetServer\en" and "AU\x86\NetServer\MUI" from the last extracted file.
CATs and INFs don't appear to be necessary.

Download locations for x86 Microsoft Update v7.6.7600.256 files:Download locations for x64 Microsoft Update v7.6.7600.256 files:

It is possible to update your version of Windows Update Agent before Microsoft rolls it out. First, replace wuweb.dll in system32 or SysWOW64 with the latest x86 version, then open the Windows Update website to force the upgrade. It may be necessary to visit the site more than once to finish the process.

AWESOME!!!

Edit: I created a repacked standalone installer for the Windows Update Agent using the previous version as base (submix8c's idea,) tested and working on XP x86

5eraph do you know if there is a cab with a INF and CAT for muweb?

I think it may be possible to create a standalone installer for Microsoft Update using the same method if I can find those two files

Your repacked x64 installer seems to work perfectly in Win7. Smile

I don't know about an INF and CAT for muweb. I haven't seen a cab that contains them.

I tried the activex inf but its not the same type as wusetup.inf, I would add muweb.dll and other files to wusetup.inf but I think that will break the digital sig and setup may fail
