How to have Windows defender offline tool always up-to-date?

  1. Hi guys,

    I downloaded the Windows defender offline tool for USB iso bootable file from Microsoft website and now I can use it from boot to scan the machine. When the machine (Windows 7 32-bit) boots by that tool, it wants me to update it before scanning the machine and that is the work I do. It becomes up-to-date and scans the system.
    So far every thing is OK.

    But after a few hours or a day if I want to scan another PC by that updated Windows defender offline tool, it again wants me to update it (!!) while a little time ago I have updated it!!
    Apparently the updating files don't remain/store in that tool.

    Is there a way to save the updating files into that tool for future uses?

    Thank you. So if I update it, the definitions will remain in that tool for future use and the size of downloading definitions will decrease in next time of definition downloading, yes?
