Current (20140726) Windows Vista 64 bit (x64) updates part 3

See also

This article is part three of three for Windows Vista 64 bit (x64) and one in a series in which I enumerate all current updates for Windows Vista and Windows 7. This article is about installing the 130+ patches needed on a fresh unpatched installation of Windows Vista. Part one is on installing Windows Vista and Service Pack 1 and part two is on installing Service Pack 2, Internet Explorer 9, DotNET, and XML v4.0.

I am listing patches for the most recent baseline – which is Service Pack 2, Internet Explorer 9, DotNET Frameworks v3.5 Service Pack 1, and v4.5.2, and XML v4.0. If you are trying to run Internet Explorer 7 or 8 (for example) on your Windows Vista box and want to know the latest security patches for that – they aren't listed here and won't be.

The installations and batch files were tested on an Intel S3000AH server motherboard running an Intel E2160 Pentium dual core processor at 1.8 GHz with 1 MB cache and 800 MHz front side bus. RAM used was 2 GB of DDR2 667MHz (PC2-5300) ECC RAM.

If you need to automate the installation of Windows Vista, get familiar with the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2012 Update 1. It supports Office 2010 automatic installation during the same operation as the Windows Vista installation. Download the version (x86 – 32 bit or x64 – 64 bit) that matches the computer you are installing MDT on – once installed, MDT can deploy both x86 and x64 versions of Windows and Office.

Listed below are links to the downloads required and text to put into a batch file so that you can update Windows Vista after a new installation on bare metal or in a new virtual machine with minimal or no visits to Windows Update. vLite is one way to integrate fixes into a custom Windows Vista installation DVD – the method I'm showing is for someone who doesn't want to go through the trouble of creating a custom DVD.

The batch file assume that you've copied the patches to the C: drive into a folder named Patches. If you have them on a flash drive/CD/DVD etc., you must edit the line "set PATHTOFIXES=C:\Patches" (without the quotes) accordingly. Do not have any spaces in the folder names – it's possible to make the batch file work with spaces in the folder names (path) but it's more complicated.

The order the patches are applied in is important! They should be done in the order I've listed them in this article. If not, some patches will not "take" and will need to be reapplied. A reboot (restart) of the computer is required after the updates – running the batch file to do the updating should do this automatically.
