NEWS for Version 1.15

Release date: 2019-07-30
Intended compatibility: WSUS Offline Update 11.8b (r1064)

New features

Automatic update of Sysinternals Utilities

The archives for the Sysinternals utilities Autologon, Sigcheck and Streams are downloaded to the directory wsusoffline/cache. They are extracted to the directories wsusoffline/bin and wsusoffline/client/bin, when new versions become available.

This was added in WSUS Offline Update version 11.7.3.

The Linux script now uses sigcheck64.exe on 64-bit hardware

This was reported by slycordinator:

Note however, that running Sigcheck in wine is still flawed: It creates too many false results. For example, it will report a file as "Signed", even if the file has been slightly altered by appending a space or changing some bytes with a hexadecimal editor. So it seems, that Sigcheck in wine cannot really verify digital file signatures. This is most probably a problem with the wine library CRYPT32.dll.

Support for Windows Server 2019

Windows Server 2019 was supported by the selection w100-x64 for some time. This is now indicated by changing the labels from "Windows 10 / Server 2016" to "Windows 10 / Server 2016/2019".

This was added in WSUS Offline Update version 11.7.3.

Support for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows Server 2012

The installers for Internet Explorer 11 on Windows Server 2012 are handled similar to the .NET Frameworks: The English installers are always downloaded and installed. Other languages are supported with language packs.

This was introduced in WSUS Offline Update version 11.8b, changeset 1064:
