    Open an elevated command prompt.
    Type the following command:
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:”C:updatecabname.cab”
    Remeber to correct the path to the update to match your file location.

  • Helper

    After placing the cab file in the c: root folder:
    Enter the command “Start /w Pkgmgr /ip /m:c:KB3194496.сab /quiet”
    Look up command line options for Windows Package Manager for more options.
