    recent MS update knackered WSUS?

    I've noticed that all our PC's/laptops have not been able to update since about the start of october/end of September. I logged onto a PC as admin so I can see whats going on - there are about 20 updates waiting to install but when you run it they all fail. This happens on every PC I have tried and the WSUS console shows all clients as failed.

    On further investigation I find it may be something to do with the crypto service - so I duly follow instructions regarding this and it still fails. When I've looked further it seems as though a few people have had the same issue and they reckon M$ has released a dodgy patch that broke WSUS - just wondering if fellow edugeekers have been having issues too? :?

    I thought it was me I'm frequently encountering this problem and I have a nice little BAT file that a female techie (sorry the name escapes me at present) sent me a couple of years ago on this.

    net.exe stop wuauserv
    cd /d %windir%
    rd /s softwaredistribution
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuapi.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng1.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wuaueng.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wucltui.dll
    REGSVR32 %windir%\system32\wups.dll
    net.exe start wuauserv

    This seems to do the trick - sometimes it needs running a couple of times on the PC that isn't enabling the updates.

    We just install the windows updater again, located here:

    http://download.windowsupdate.com/v7...gent30-x86.exe

    You may need to restart the PCs.

    This would explain some problems I'm having.
