New Features of WuInstall 2.3 (Christmas-2014-Edition)

Dec 18 2014

It has been a long time since the release of WuInstall 2.0 and we've managed to implement some great features for the new WuInstall 2.3!

New features in WuInstall 2.3

  • /log_as_ansi: Like /logfile but the file will be ansi encoded.
  • /third_party_progress: This option will generate additional output on the console and the logfile which makes it easier to parse. Each line will have a given tag as prefix and postfix.
  • /refresh_last_update_timestamp: Adding this option to the command line will update the timestamp for the last update search/installation on the system. This timestamp is displayed in the Windows Update Center.
  • /UseUpdateService: This option replaces /bypass_wsus which will be marked as deprecated. /UseUpdateService sets the given service (MicrosoftUpdate, WindowsUpdate, WSUS or Default) which will be used for searching updates.
  • /maxUpdateCount: With this option it's possible to specify the maximum number of updates which will be handled by the WuInstall call.
  • /force_download: All updates will be downloaded even if they are already downloaded.

Additional changes:

  • The reboot_required flag in the XML-output will be set to true even if the current WuInstall command doesn't result in a reboot required state.
  • WuInstall will not download updates which were already downloaded. This behavior can be overwritten with the new /force_download option.
  • The log file can now be read while it's written.

Changes to the WuInstall.com portal:

  • Now it's possible to download older WuInstall versions in the customer portal.
