how to open downloaded updates list and to start updating instantly

Post by ruulist » Thu Mar 15, 2007 8:10 pm

Hi,

Is there any post integration pack suggestions?
Especially how to force update icon to appear to notification area (lower right corner). That's when dl win updates is set to dl and to install manually. Then one can open updates list, choose required ones and start updating.
Now sometimes some PCs this icon appears, but sometimes only when shutting down, there is a text of installing updates without any options to choice.

Thanks.

This should force a check:

Code: Select all

wuauclt.exe /detectnow
I find the tray icon to act randomly also. Sometimes it will be there and sometimes it won't and I'll get the 'shutdown and install updates' message at shutdown.

Rather annoying, as I'd like to use the custom option every time.

Hi,

I'm afaraid its intentional by MS design, that user can't decide which updates they need or what updates likely degrade their system :-(

As an alteernative, to go to MS site and get updates there, isn't used often, good if 1 of 100 users...
Easiest might be to let updates download automatically and then to choose which one are indeed needed.
