  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet forums.

    Microsoft Update (Get updates for other Microsoft Products) cannot be enable in Windows 7 by deploying Group Policy.

    However, we can still perform the task by using script as a work-around.

    Please check the article below to see if it is helpful:

  • Hello,

    Is there a group policy to control the "Get updates for other Microsoft products" - "Find out more".

    Unfortunately, I don't know what you are talking about.

    Can you please provide a screenshot of this setting?

  • Are you using WSUS to deploy your patches?  If so can select different classifications of patches to deploy.

  • Yes we already have differrent classifications in our SCCM server, which uses the Windows Updates on the local client.

  • Sorry, I'm still not getting it.

    What do you want to patch?
    Do you want to apply also Office Patches and so on?

  • Afterwards reinitialize the Client. For example on a classic cmd shell:

    net stop wuauserv
    rd /s /q "%SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution"
    net start wuauserv
