How To Enable Several Update Programs? RRS feed

  • Question

  • how can i enable numerous 3rd party program updates? such as anti-virus, browsers, media players, etc etc.

    the update config screen only allows me to add ONE program!

    how about if i create a user called "SYSTEM", and exempt it from Disk Protection? isn't that the account that runs antivirus and other updates?

  • Hi, unfortunately, browsers, media players is not officially supported by Windows SteadyState currently. We do not have existing script for it. As we do not support custom script development in this forum, you will need to write your own custom update script. When you write a custom script, please pay attention to the following:


    1. Custom scripts must be written so that they return only after actions in the custom script have been completed.


    2. If a custom script update on a Windows SteadyState computer requires any resources during a scheduled update, such as a valid network connection, the resource must be available at the time of the update.


    3. If browsers or media players shows any blocking UI (for example, a dialog that requires user interaction), then the updates will fail.


    Also, you can refer to the following thread regarding script:


    Script with schedule update at certain time and disk protection on and set to remove changes



    Thanks for your understanding.
