  • Hi,

    can i force extract wizard to use system volume only, or at lest use temp.

     Yes. Just run the EXE file with a /x parmater and this gives you a prompt of extraction location.

    how can i monitor why access is denied?

    it seems you have some kind of permision issues or could be something to do with freespace. this seems like nothing relevant to FCS.

    which account WSUS use when install any security update or FCS update??  i think it use computer account and in this case

    Windows uses Local system account for installing Updates upon itself.

  • Dear Yaniv

    thanks for your reply,
    i want to mention that the reason of Access is Denied as we implement File Screening to prevent exe,,so while extract the definition it fail.
