Software Update: WSUS Offline Update 12.0

Version 12.0 of WSUS Offline Update has been released, the first version to end support for Windows 7. This program makes it possible to provide Windows computers that have no or a slow internet connection with the latest updates from Microsoft. Simply checking one or more operating systems, office suites and languages ​​will download all available updates from Microsoft’s ftp server. When the updates are in, an ISO file is optionally made per language or per operating system. Other computers can then be updated quickly and easily via a CD, DVD or USB stick. The changelog for version 12.0 looks like this:
