    Hello Hyperia,

    I'm not sure if this option works in Windows 8.1 or not.
    If not, you could use the method in the tutorial below to download the MSU file for each Windows Update to have available to install them with.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for your answer, finally, i'll use " information " on details for download one per one, all updates ( exept KB2837643 KbMtfr )
    and now i use a batch for install them with only ONE clic but i've one problem and it's hard for me to explain this here :

    When i use "call" for load a batch since a other batch, it's doesn't work, the seconc batch contain this :

    for /f %% in ('dir /b ^| Find ".exe"') do (start /wait %%~ /quiet /norestart
    )

    for /f %% in ('dir /b ^| Find ".msu"') do (
    start /wait %%~ /quiet /norestart
    )

    msiexec /update msointl-fr-fr.msp /quiet
    msiexec /update mso-x-none.msp /quiet

    pause

    Actually, i search where is the problem.

    I'm glad it could help.

    I wish I could help with the .bat file issue you are having, but I'm afraid that I don't know either.

    I'll try to explain what i want make :


    I've created a batch with 3 choices :
    1 => install my drivers and install updates ( Windows + Office )
    2 => finish to install updates because all can't be install in just one time ( need to reboot for apply other updates)
    3 => execute optimisations with your files .reg


    I've created a folder named "All" containing 2 others folders " Drivers " and " OSPatch "
    " OSPatch " contains the files .exe and .msu AND batch named Da****
    " Drivers " contains several folders, one per driver
    Da**** will install all files .exe , .msu and .msp


    I shortened up my current batch :
    ________________________________________________________________
    Principal batch =>

    echo Votre choix est :
    echo 1 : premiere installation
    echo 2 : mise a jour recalcitrante
    echo 3 : optimisation de W8.1

    set /p choix=
    if %choix%==1 goto 1
    if %choix%==2 goto 2
    if %choix%==3 goto 3

    :1
    start /wait %systemdrive%\All\Drivers\Intel-82579V-18.7\APPS\SETUP\SETUPBD\Winx64\SetupBD /s
    call c:\All\OSPatch\Da****.bat
    goto :fin

    :2
    call c:\All\OSPatch\Da****.bat
    goto :fin

    :3
    Reg Delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{1CF1260C-4DD0-4ebb-811F-33C572699FDE}" /F
    goto :fin

    :fin
    echo It's Ok !


    __________________________________________________________

    Da**** batch =>


    for /f %% in ('dir /b ^| Find ".exe"') do (
    start /wait %%~ /quiet /norestart
    )

    for /f %% in ('dir /b ^| Find ".msu"') do (
    start /wait %%~ /quiet /norestart
    )

    msiexec /update msointl-fr-fr.msp /quiet
    msiexec /update mso-x-none.msp /quiet

    pause
    _________________________________________________________________

    The problem : When i execute Da****.bat directly, it work !
    When i execute Da****.bat with principal batch, Da****.bat don't work !

    Can you help me ?
    thanks !

    Are you using "Run as administrator" on the .bat file?

    autochk is the .exe used for chkdsk.

    Seems like it's finding those .exe files from the dir /b ^ part of the code below??

    for /f %% in ('dir /b ^| Find ".exe"') do (
    start /wait %%~ /quiet /norestart
    )

    yes, probably sure !
    In this case, how not to target parent directories ?

    I'm not as familiar with the commands you used in the .bat, so I'm not sure.

    If able, you might have all the updates in a root folder on C: , and specify that directory/folder instead?
