WSUS update issue - declined items is updated

    Pergunta

  • Dear all,

    Our company use WSUS to update client PC. We has installed the Office File Validation Add-on (KB2501584) before and found that user open excel responding slowly. Please uninstall the add-on on client PC and then change it to declined in WSUS. But later we still find the item in Client PC.

    How we can stop user from update the Office File Validation Add-on?

    You can use a Computerstartupscript:
    MsiExec.exe /uninstall {90140000-2005-0000-0000-0000000FF1CE} /quiet /norestart

    The first step is to DECLINE the Office File Validation Add-on. MANY people have observed performance and reliability issues with this update. Once the update is declined, the next time the client checks in it will 'unschedule' the update installation.

    For those clients where it has already been installed, you should be able to remove it from Program & Features | Show Installed Updates on a case-by-case basis, or as Winfried has shown, since it is an Office update, it can be uninstalled using MSIEXEC in a startup or power-on script.

    Finally, while I've not personally check this it may be possible to uninstall the update by simply configuring it with an "Approval for Remove" in the WSUS Console. Because it is an MSI-based package, it could be possible to let the WUAgent remove it, presuming the package supports that behavior.

  • Winfried, may I know How your find the GUID of the KB2501584?


    Lawrence, the status for Office file Validation is not approved. I can't change it to "Approval for Remove". Is it our previous step is incorrect? Should we change it to "approval for Remove" rather than change it to "not approved"?

    That would be an indication that the WUAgent cannot remove the update.
