LF Legit Addon KB905474 (WGANotification) for unattended install

Recommended Posts

First off, I'm looking for the legitimate KB905474 WGA Notification. I'm not interested in any cracked versions being installed on my client's machines.

/Q seems to be the only option that the EXE will take. The other more standard switches it complains about.

During the Windows Installation, it waits for user input to hit next a few times and isn't completely quiet to allow an unattended install.

Anyone have a link to a legit MS WGA Notification addon that can work without user input during install?

I am having the same problem.

I'm also not interested in any "cracked" hotfix, I just want to use the normal hotfix

so its installed and not showing up in Windows Updates. Heres what I did...

1 - Opened the KB905474 file with WinRAR

2 - Dragged out the file inside, its called "WGANOT~1.EXE"

3 - Renamed that file to "KB905474.exe"

4 - Tested an install by doing this:

start /wait KB905474.exe /Q /O /Z

(I know just /Q can be used, but that reboots the machine without any warning!)

5 - When I put this into my ISO and installed it, Windows Update still says I need the KB905474 update.

Maybe it was because I left in the INF+DLL commands in my batch file (because that also

was not working) so I will retest just doing it the /Q /O /Z way and post back.

RyanVM has an older verson available.

For the Update Agent, you could try the following command line at GUIRunOnce/RunOnceEx/nLite RunOnce. (Thanks to Kurt_Aust.)

WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /Q /WUforce

I don't mean to hijack anyone else's inquire, but I had posted the same general question at the application forum: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=133553

Seraph,

was wondering if you could be more precise on the runonce part. I don't understand where I would put the windows update agent 3.0 exe and exactly what the runonce command would be. As an FYI, I already create an $1\Install folder where I put my "tweaks.reg" and I put the following command in nlite's runonce area: regedit.exe /s %systemdrive%\Install\tweaks.reg This works perfectly.

Thanks in advance for any guidance,

Eddie

In that case, eddie11013, you could also put the agent installer in %1\Install and use the following command line in nLite's RunOnce area:

%SystemDrive%\Install\WindowsUpdateAgent30-x86.exe /Q /WUforce
