W2012R2 Preview - Search doesn't find Windows Update


  • From Search (Everywhere) "Windows Update" and "Optional Updates" returns no results however they are still available through Control Panel\System Security.

    Looks like a bug.

  • Hi,

    Press Windows Key, and then search Windows Update, the default search type is apps, then click settings under the search box, we could see Windows update.

  • Yes, that works in W2012 but it doesn't in W2012 R2 Preview. BTW Settings is ABOVE the search box in a dropdown in W2012R2 Preview (not below) - are you sure you're using the R2 Preview?

    I'm using build 9431 with the latest patches

  • I just tested this on a later build and it works not both "Windows Update" and "Optional Updates" now return the expected results.
