Addon Type: SVCPACK Addon; WINNT True Integrator only
Platform: Vista/Win7, processor-neutral
Uninstallable: No

Simple SVCPACK addon to opt in to MS Update. Win7 has MS Update built in and no longer requires registering separate DLL's to use it like in XP. A simple VB Script executed at SVCPACK stage does the opt-in automatically, sparing the pain of having to click the link in Windows Update and accept the EULA in IE. Windows Update will out-of-the-box now check for all MS product updates from Microsoft Update. Code for the .vbs file:

Code: Select all

Set ServiceManager = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager")
ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
Set NewUpdateService = ServiceManager.AddService2("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")
Tested and working on x64. Untested but should work OK on x86.
