What effect does installing KB2734608 have on the client computers?


  • We have a mixed environment of computers: XP, Win 7, and very few Win 8.  We already have KB2720211 installed and would like to install KB2734608 to patch Win 8 computers.  Will installing KB2734608 update the WUAgent on computers?  Will it install anything on the client computers?  I am particularly concerned about bandwidth usage and performance issue on the computers.

  • KB2720211 has already installed an updated WUA package on the WSUS, and your WSUS clients would be self-updating to that v256 WUA  (7.6.7600.256) (assuming you haven't disabled self-update on the clients)

    KB2734608 does not deploy a later WUA version.
