this type of software which does not need any updates after installation does not exist.
there'll always be updates to the SQL Server after it had been released. Don't forget that the code base for the SQL Server is fixed about 2 month before it is available for download and in the meantime additional changes had been already been implemented for performance, stability, bug fixes etc both on the operating system and SQL Server.
Please check the Hardware and Software requirements for installing SQL Server page for a specific version: Hardware and Software Requirements for Installing SQL Server 2012. This page list the required prerequisite for installing SQL Server.
If you need to run SQL Server with several clients you should use Windows Server 2008R2 instead of Windows 7 as there're several limitiation imposed on SQL Server when running on desktop operating system.
