FCS Won't Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have FCS installed on a couple computers at home. I just let htem update from the Internet. One of the two computers is not updating. I just installed FCS on it last week, the av defs are version 1.0.0.0. When I clien update now I get a message that says no new updates are available. My other computer is updating fine. Any idea why this computer won't update? I have unintalled and reinstalled FCS but it still won't update.

  • If the machines are not opted-in to Microsoft Update (as opposed to Windows Update) they will not get offered definitions.  I bet thats it.

  • Have you tried installing update 956280?  On some clients I had here at work, they also would say no updated definitions were available until I installed that update.

  • Hi John,

    I keep on advising people to use the offline update for the forefront at initial update, its mostly an issue with first update after installation i believe has to do with individual internet connections. so pls, download the offline update here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935934 and run it as administrator, you should'nt have issue with subsequent updates. Good luck.
