Hi WSUS Update Admin,

does it mean that it will be included in the next version of the WSUS Offline?
If so, when is the planned release date (at least approximately) ?
Do you plan to include also the option to enforce the installation without the "registry compatibility entry" ?
(e.g. an additional parameter for "DoUpdate.cmd")
Thanks.

Cheers,
IBU

I doubt enforcing the installation of updates without this registry value is possible because I guess that Windows (maybe even the Update Agent itself) somehow checks for this value and doesn't offer specific updates if it's not present. Since WSUS Offline just uses Windows mechanisms to check for missing updates and install them, it depends on them.

Assuming that my thesis is correct, it would require WSUS Offline to set this value, which - in my opinion - it should not do. It's up to the vendors of anti-virus software and/or the system's administrator to do it.

This is exactly my opinion.
Therefore, WOU will just throw a warning if the registry value is not set.
