    • in reply to: Is there a way to cheat Pause Update? #2260632

      I followed the sage advice of PKCano (thank you) and just went ahead and installed the April patches for my Win 10 desktop. I hit the Resume button and was  offered three updates:

      Cumulative Update KB4549951

      Malicious Software Removal Tool KB890830

      and the optional CU preview KB4550945.

      I installed the first two, ignored the third.

      Then I paused the updates again until June 3rd.

      My question is this: on the Master Patch List I see SSU KB4552152 which it says to install first.

      However I was not offered that particular update and I didn’t see the master patch list until after I installed the other  two.

      Should I install it now directly from the Microsoft update catalog?

      I should mention that my pc has version 1909 OS build 18363.778

       

      Thank you 🙂

      Ooops, I forgot to install the April updates before initiating the pause. My last installed update was the March CU KB4551762 that I installed April 1st when askwoody went to DEFCON 3.

      At this point should I just skip April wait and install the May updates when the DEFCON number goes up?

      WOO HOO!!!!

      Thank you, thank you, thank you mixer. Your super easy step-by-step instructions enabled me to change the date to June 3.

      I had pushed the date as far as I could which for me was this Wednesday the 6th.

      Thanks again!!

    • Wow, I did it!! I kept trying and then recalled that I did something similar years ago with a file named “pciclearstalecache”.

      I surprised myself when I hit the zero key and it began the installation process.

      I waited a long time to reboot and then let it sit another good long time before signing in. Just checked the installed updates and I see four listed with today’s date./

      I am also using 0patch Pro and so far it is working fine.

      WOO HOO

      Thank you to everyone in this thread, PK and of course abbodi.

      BTW, I have been on askwoody site for many, many years as a devoted Group B’er. I decided to join as a Plus Member recently.

    • OK, so I need to skip the Feb SO updates and instead download the March SO updates instead?

      I had just figured I would installed the Feb updates as we are still on DefCon 2 with the March updates.

      Thanks PK. I may still have to wait until my IT brother visits  and let him do it so he can show me in person. Who knows how long that will be though

      I feel so stupid when it comes to this “stuff”

      Also what I meant is that I have installed already the two prior SSU’s. I checked my installed updates just to be sure and they are listed.

    • Downloaded the required W7ESUI and then the Feb SO updates.

      I made sure I had the SSU necessary installed which I already did way back when as I did installed the Group Jan update prior to buying 0patch subscription.

      Well I thought I would try this new ESL and for me it didnt work. I got the cmd window with all of the same script as pictured but when I hit the zero key nothing happened.

       

      Just noticed I needed SSU KB4550735 so I went to the Microsoft Update Catalog and downloaded it.

      Must admit, I am kind of lost where to go from here but then I am not computer savvy
