Hot fix not applied to WSUS server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running windows 2008 SP2 with WSUS 3.0 sp2.  I have tried to apply several hotfixes and I reboot and look at the help page and I am still on Version: 3.2.7600.226.  No matter what KB I apply this never changes.  So it is not detecting my windows 8 machines correctly.  How do I get the hotfixes applied.  I click on install on them and they say updating and then it says successfully finished but the version number never changes.  Any help would be appreciated.

    The problem is that you're looking at the help page. This is a long-standing bug in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) that does not update the About->Help of the base product when patched.

    The authoritative source for the current build of a WSUS server is on the Details Pane of the root node of the console, in the lower right corner where it identifies the current "Server Version".
