  • there is an answer :

    Hi Guys,

    I spent some time researching the problem today

    in order to understand the solution here is alittle explenation about the problem:

    Windows Update doesnt work on VISTA Beta 2 machiens after joining to a domin.

    the thing is that if you have WUS or SUS in your environment the group policy by the domain send the stations the WUS or SUS server for updates and fixes it, thats why when I pulled it out from the domain it worked fine

    so the thing is that you need to make a REG key that look like this : (past this to notepad and save it as .reg)

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate\DisableWindowsUpdateAccess]  

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
    "NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000000

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate]

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoDevMgrUpdate"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "NoUpdateCheck"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate]
    "DisableWindowsUpdateAccess"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000000

     

    after saving it , double-click should active it , Restart to Windows Update Service and its done

    now this key will get back your Vista station to work with local policy, witch connect to the internet for updates.

    no messing around with Organizational WUS or SUS ..

    Have a Good Week,
