Anyone know how to stop this WU nag appearing? Windows Update software?
Posted 03 June 2012 - 11:08 AM
I have already slipstreamed every hotifix with nLite, then at first login it installs the odd ones nLite cannot slipstream.
It also installs the "WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe" at first login using the following switches which do work...
/wuforce /silent /norestart
This works because when I try to manually install the Windows Update Agent after this, it tells me its already installed.
The problem is I am still missing something else because when I visit Windows Update it says...
Does anyone know of an addon for nLite that fixes this?
I even tried adding the files to $OEM$\$$\system32 but that doesn't work.
it seems to add the files wuauclt.exe and wuaueng.dll among others.
I am sure the addon used to be called wucab or it was something to do with cab files.
Really I just want an addon, thats the simplest way.
I know its possible because when I use an addon pack (completely updates Windows) this message never appears on Windows Update so there is some way to do this with an addon.
Thanks in advance, there is always an answer here.

I just didn't realize the files I need are indeed in the Windows Update Agent 3.0 - I thought this WU message referred to a different thing.
Cheers 5eraph I don't know how you remember all this stuff
After all, the 2012 file you linked to has the exact same file name as the 2009 one.
Yes I was using a much older version...

You need to get used to MS naming conventions .
My guess is that they use a "random filename generator" and when it is broken (quite often, as it is coded in Silverlight, using the MS SQL database as backbone and Outlook Express to send back an e-mail with the generated name ), they simply re-use an already available name.
Compare with post #12 here:
