wuauclt /detectnow in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016



Applies to;

Windows Server 1709

Windows Server 2016

Windows 10


Administrators trying to use wuauclt /detectnow will notice that it doesn’t do anything.


In Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016 or newer, the command to scan “Windows Update” from the command line is:

CMD (Run As Admin)

c:\windows\system32\UsoClient.exe startscan
