    Windows 10 Offline Update Downloading - Which Method You Recommend


    Have used Portable Updates and WSUS Offine Updates. Both gave me issue but
    the latter started giving me errors.

    The last Windows10 update seem to be large and it got my montly data limits at home for four PCs.
    What would be the best method to update Windows (offline download) so I can bring the files home
    and update my PCs?

    Thanks.

    The Offline updates I download are installable files, usually .msu. I just put them on a Thumb driver for transportability. Double-clicking a file starts the install.

    - How do you download them? What process or utility?
    - Can I also download Office products updates with your process?
    Thanks.

    I download updates from Microsoft Update Catalog
    I have never used Windows Update to download them since I found this catalog.

    Hello,
    I tried the catalog using the "Windows 10 Update" search but the latest date is 7/11/16.
    Below is the search result information:
    Your search resulted in over 1000 matching updates. Only the first 1000 are returned. To narrow your search, try adding additional keywords to your search terms.

    Updates: 1 - 25 of 1000 (page 1 of 40)

    I really love this tool except, it can ONLY download the architecture of the windows system where you are downloading with. I have both 32bit and 64bit systems at home but at the office, where I would download the updates, has only 64bit computer. Bummer!
    Thanks

    You have to enter the correct keywords, for example 'version 1703 cumulative KB4016871'.
    That said, I have switched to downloading updates via Windows Update MiniTool, which spares me the trouble of typing the keywords.

    I tried your "keyword" and it works. In this case, it is no more a keyword since I would have to know the name of the file I am looking for, which would be finding the name first before using the tool.

    The Windows Update MiniTool would only download the architecture of the PC you are using, 64Bit or 32Bit.

    Thanks for the information, well appreciated.

    On the 32-bit computer at your home, use MiniTool to find the names.
    On the 64-bit computer at your office, use those names as keywords to search for updates at Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Alternatively, you may click on 'Update Support URL', as shown in the screenshot below. Go to the URLs and copy the direct download links, which can then be used to download the updates on the computer at your office.
