DetermineSystemProperties Fault

Postby DuncanK » 05.07.2019, 10:46


I am getting the following error when trying to install updates:

wsus 11.5 error: unsupported operating system (x64)

when I run the DetermineSystemProperties script it returns a blank txt file on the desktop.

Any suggestions where the fault may be?

Quote from the FAQ:

Code: Select all
Q: On installation of patches I'm getting strange errors in the command line window, e. g. "C:\wsusupdate\client\cmd\DetermineSystemProperties.vbs(92, 3) (null): 0x80041014". Then the script terminates. What is the cause and how can I solve this problem?
A: For trouble-free execution, the script requires the correct installation and configuration of the following Windows services/components: "Automatic Update/Windows Update (WUA)", "Windows Script Host (WSH)" and "Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)". Please check first if you have restricted or even disabled these services with tools like TweakUI, nLite/vLite, XP-Antispy, XPy, Tuneup Utilities etc.
If that's not the case, the cause is most probably an erroneous scripting components' or WMI registration.
To (re-)register the scripting components on your computer, please follow the instructions at
To check your WMI installation, use Microsoft's WMI diagnostics tool ( Further technical information is given on; the WMI FAQs you'll find on

Please check that the mentioned components (WUA, WSH and WMI) are fully operational.

Could you also please manually run .\client\cmd\DeterminSystemProperties.vbs with admin rights and then post the content of WOUSystemProperties.txt saved on your Desktop.
