Reminder on upcoming update for Windows Update


Hi All,


 


Just a reminder, we are starting the Windows Update and Microsoft Update service upgrades today. The service upgrade will include updates to the online update services and the Windows Update (or Automatic Updates on XP) client code installed on your computer. As explained in our previous post, the upgrade will take several months to complete, and you don’t need to do anything on your own to complete the service upgrade. The client code will be updated automatically when needed, if your computer is configured to automatically check for updates, download updates, or install updates. If you have disabled updating and do not check for updates then the client code will not be updated automatically.


 


For more information, please refer to our previous post.


 


Thanks,


MU Team

    Don’t know which Windows version you’re asking for, but in most cases a "regsvr32 wups2.dll" entered in a command window (with admin rights) should do the trick.

    Dear thingy.

    The privacy statement has said since day one that the underlying plumbing of automatic updates can and will be updated.

    This has not changed.  Period.

    I’ve never seen this fail or change setting on your computer system.

    I think it will update the client code automatically if required, and secondly if pc is configured to automatically check for updates, download updates, or install updates, it will install automatically. Thanks

    "The client code will be updated automatically when needed, if your computer is configured to automatically check for updates, download updates, or install updates."

    I still don’t understand why you think its ok to silently install things when your customers have specifically chosen the option "ask me before you install anything."  For many reasons, many people don’t want random installations happening in the background of their machines without their knowledge.

    When you give us an option, we expect you to hold to your word and honour that option.

    A Critical Update saying "You must install this update to receive future notifications" would be a perfectly acceptable way of distributing this update without counteracting your customers’ explicitly stated wishes.

    I agree with your conclusions and will eagerly look forward to your next updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for  the wonderful clarity in your writing.

    Seems to me that the only thing that is being forced is the update client that every windows installation has. Whether you chose to actually use it or not is entirely up to the user. Nothing seems to have changed there at all.

    If you have Updates turned off and do a manual update, the client is installed automatically. Nothing new there at all. Windows XP has been doing that for as long as I can remember.

    I wanted to ask if Windows Update or Automatic Updates is enabled to automatically check for updates, download updates, then the infrastructure update will be installed automatically or it needs to installed manually??

    I think Windows update or Automatic Updates client software must be updated, or you may not be able to successfully check for updates or perform other configured actions. Thanks

    Well my new PC just started a reboot loop last night about 2:30 am.  I suspect the PC may have downloaded this new update and something happened.  Have sent in a trouble report to MS.  Anyone else seen any new reboot loop problems lately (since this latest update to Windows Update started to be distributed)?

    When it starts is comes up with a message that says Windows has detected a problem and is shutting down……..Then it restarts, and same story.  Had to pull the plug.  This is a remote computer with UPS and is set to restart after a power fail is restored.

  40. Nice website. Very cool content. Thank you!!!
