    If I run elevated CMD it says: 'wuaulct' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operatable program or batch file.

    That last one is a typo, it should be 'wuauclt', not 'wuaulct'

    Just given it a go on elevated, no errors, no confirmation.
    Not sure if it has worked or not. Time will tell I guess!

    If nothing seems to happen on the server then checking WindowsUpdate.log in your Windows installation folder may help you figure out what's going on behind the scenes.

    The error shows: The system cannot find the file specified.
    Type the full path to the MSU. e.g.

    Code:
    psexec.exe -s -i -d C:\Updates\Windows6.1-KB947821-v32-x64.msu

    PsExec could not start C:\Windows6.1-KB947821-v32-x64.msu on SMCESSVR:
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    It is on the root, I did a dir and copied and pasted.
    Have tried downloading a fresh copy in case it was corrupted, same problem. Tried downloading it from another system in case of permission problems, same problem again.
    Properties on the file all look to be fine.

    Ah wusa Windows6.1-KB947821-v32-x64.msu has done the trick. It is running now, lets see what happens.

    Running as administrator on cmd, it starts to run installer and then I get:

    Windows Update Standalone Installer
    Installer encountered an error: 0x80070005
    Access is denied!

    FLAMING NIGHTMARE!

    I usually find it easier to open a Command Prompt as Administrator, run psexec -s -i -d cmd.exe to open a second Command Prompt as SYSTEM, then run the installer from there. i.e.

    Code:
    wusa.exe D:\Windows6.1-KB947821-v32-x64.msu

    Hi, thanks for your post. I have done exactly what you said, and I get the following message:

    Windows Update Standalone Installer
    Only one instance of wusa.exe is allowed to run.


    If I kill wusa.exe on Process Manager, and re-run, I get the following error:

    Windows Update Standalone Installer
    Installer encountered an error: 0x80070002
    The system cannot find the file specified.
