  • Hi. Would you check CPU utilization on the server, where you are trying to install patches while you are installing them? I believe that was some issue when installing packages using Windows installer.

    If high CPU is not that case, it might be also because of printer driver: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/128746-slow-software-installation-on-terminal-servers/ (I had this issue)

  • What is connectivity between WSUS and Win Server? Please also check Event logs (System/Application) and c:\windows\windowsupdate.log

  • I see this log and we have no problem in Systel/Application and c:\windows\windowsupdate.log

  • WindowsUpdate.log should at least clarify, why it takes so long - or even better: what takes so long.

  • Log describes activities from 2015-11-05 14:51:06:590 to 2015-11-05 14:51:12:576 - in other words 6 seconds. Is it possible to upload somewhere what happened during long installation?
