Slipstreaming Updates in Windows 2008 R2

I am trying to Slipstreaming Windows 2008 R2 with the latest Windows Updates.
I am using a Microsoft tool (WAIK \dism.exe) to achieve that.
The windows updates are grabbed from Windows Update Catalog (

The updates have been grab in 2 different formats (.CAB and .MSU)
However, i did succeed to update the install.wim file with the .MSU updates but i have been getting an error message every time i attempt to slipstream a .CAB update to the install.wim file.

*The comand line:
C:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\amd64\Servicing>dism /image:D:\WORK\mnt /add-package /packagepath:D:\WORK\Downloaded_updates_new\UTAXTAPrintersCDC1970_DCC2970KPDL\AMD64_X86-pt-20416435_695a2192d5b16312338f824febc409703c687460

*The error message:

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Error: 87

No packages were found that require processing.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

Is there anybody familiar with this issue and its solution.

Thank you in advanced.

CAB files are just compressed files. You more often see CAB files if a patch or hotfix contained multiple MSU files and they needed to distribute it as a bundle to ensure matched dll files. Unless otherwise documented, you should be able to extract the cab file and then apply the individual updates contained within.
