I suggest you ...

Standalone installer for vsupdate_KB2707250.exe would be usefull and save time.

As you can read here:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vssetup/thread/06b7f509-567b-4869-81a3-801e4cae883f/

there is no standalone installer for vsupdate_KB2707250.exe.

Each time when you reinstall your development PC you have to wait a long time while the web installer of the
update vsupdate_KB2707250.exe downloads the update. To eliminate this uncessary wait time, it woul be
usefull to download only once a standalone installer of the vsupdate_KB2707250.exe update.

    Our installer does allow for downloading once and applying across multiple machines. Please see Rob Caron’s blog post (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/robcaron/archive/2013/04/04/how-to-install-visual-studio-2012-update-2-offline.aspx) for instruction on how to do this. Having said that, we also recognize that the /layout option doesn’t work in all cases, so we’ve also provided an ISO image (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2013/05/03/announcing-availability-of-isos-for-visual-studio-updates.aspx?PageIndex=3&CommentPosted=true) where you can use your own downloader to accomplish offline/multiple installs. And for those reporting issues with the /layout option, please know that we’re working on the issues as we discover them.

    I’m marking this item as Completed given the fact that the feature exists (admittedly with some outstanding bugs we’re working on) and we have a different, offline alternative in our ISO image for customers experiencing problems with the /layout feature. Between one of those two paths, we believe this issue is addressed.
