  • Can you reproduce the issue?

    try running from the command line:

    cscript.exe ztiwindowsupdate.wsf /debug:true /debugcapture

    that should show the line number where the program crashed.

    Additionally, you might check the WindowsUpdate.log file to see if it reported any errors.

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm getting this message time to time and I don't know why. I have the ZTIWindowsUpdate.log who says:

    <![LOG[Ready to Opt-In to Microsoft Update: WUA Version: 7.6.7601.18804]LOG]!><time="15:35:07.000+000" date="04-14-2015" component="ZTIWindowsUpdate" context="" type="1" thread="" file="ZTIWindowsUpdate">

    Do we have an explanation for this issue? Or, do you know how to fix that?

  • As I mention in my last post, open an elevated cmd.exe window, and try running the script manually with the following command:

    cscript.exe \\server\deploymentshare$\scripts\ztiwindowsupdate.wsf /debug:true /debugcapture

    and capture the error output in the reply.

    Otherwise there is nothing to do.

  • I am receiving this error, however, when I go and rerun that script, it runs fine with no errors.  I re-imaged the PC again, ran the script in debug mode like you requested and this is what I am getting:

    Pretty much the same error.

  • I am seeing this error when trying to create a reference build where I only enabled the Windows Update Pre and Windows Update Post tasks in the Task Sequence.  MDT-8450 running on Server 2012 R2.  I found a reference to this error on older versions of MDT and confirmed the code fix is present in the 8450 build.  Windows Update appears to be working properly and the updates appear to be installing successfully.
