FCS manual update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to force the FCS client to check for updates?


    This would be very helpful, since we are testing the viability of deploying FCS to a set of mobile clients, and the customer wants to confirm that FCS updates automatically with MU is WSUS is not available. So, executing a local command forcing FCS to update instead of waiting for it would be great.


    Is that possible?

  • Yes, you can do this via the antimalware client UI by choosing the dropdown to the right of the Help and selecting "Check for Updates", or you can do this via a commandline by executing %programfiles%\Microsoft Forefront\Client Security\client\antimalware\mpcmdrun.exe -SignatureUpdate.
