Microsoft Update Catalog Power Downloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I was wondering if anyone has managed to PowerShell downloading updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog?

    I can get the ID information and updates I require but have so far been unsuccessful in actually being able to download the updates.

    Thought I'd try the Windows Update API too but seems to be updates specific to the client.

    Any advise or pointers greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks,

    Raf

  • Updates are always specific to the client.

    What is you question?  What is it that you are trying to do?

    Look in the script Gallery for scripts that will work with WU API.

  • Thanks for the reply.

    I looked at this WU API but as mentioned, its client specific. I want to schedule download a set of rollup updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog which are not client specific to sort in a central repository for deploying later.

    You mean you want to do what WSUS is doing?
