    Windows 8 Updates


    Sorry if this is the wrong section before i even ask

    I have downloaded over 70 Windows 8 updates from the Windows catalogue as i am wanting to do a clean install,
    the thing is, when downloaded from Windows update running the OS it installs in order.
    How do i install the manual updates in order correctly??

    They are all in one folder
    Do i just start with the first and carry on?

    Or is there a multi-installer that will do it for me

    The reason i'm asking is Windows Updates are slow to download but the catalogue downloaded them in minutes

    Any help would be grateful ,thanks

    I would install them by date (from earliest to latest). Here is a list of my installed updates. Maybe you can use my order of installation as a guideline. All were downloaded and installed from Windows Update so maybe this can help you decide:

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    Click image for larger version

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Thanks, just had a bit of a minor brainwave

    I looked in a few of the separate folders and-------

    All the .exe packages inside the folders are dated of there release.
    So i'll make an Update folder and place them all in there and Sort by Date

    Hope This can help others too!!!!
