  • Hello gubment,

      If I understand correctly, you want to use a computer, that is connected to the internet, to download (from the Microsoft Download site) software/updates (that require Validation to download) and then use that software/update on a computer not connected to the internet?

      If that is the question, then yes, I don't see anything wrong with you doing that.

    Thanks for the great question,
    Darin MS
