When installing or updating it, you need to ensure that your copy of Windows 7 is genuine and already activated because the update requires to validate your copy of Windows. If its not genuine, you will not be able to run the update.

Also, the Windows Update Standalone Installer utilizes the Windows Update Agent API to perform the update. And the packages have a .msu extension. And this is connected with the Windows Update Standalone Installer. Run the Windows Update first to ensure that this .msu file is not missing. Simply go to Start and Control Panel and then run Windows Update or use Belarc Advisor to install any missing updates.
