    Hello, Many thanks for WSUS.

    If anyone has an answer to two simple questions I would appreciate it. First, is there a way to check the software version. The download link on google drive only shows a zip file name wumt.zip, it doesn't show a version name and I don't see a version shown on the actual program itself.

    Second, my primary use for WSUS is to be able to store updates for a retired OS (Windows Home Server) off line (which I have successfully downloaded with WSUS). My question now is, should I need to install them on a future fresh OS install now that they are downloaded, how do I do that?

    Sorry for a noob question, any arrow pointing would be appreciated.

    WUMT Wrapper Script v2.4.8 (July 30, 2018)
    Info (My Digital Life) / Download (Majorgeeks)
    Changelog from version 2.4.7
    Windows Defender Updates frequency changed to every 2 hours from 4 hours.
    wub_task now forces off the update service at login as well as on reboot.
    Thanks @rpo, @Lars220, and @Whistler4
    Changelog from version 2.4.6
    Had error in uninstaller that unnecessarily enabled
    "\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\Scheduled Start" task.
    Not a big deal but is now fixed.
    Now the script disables and locks all
    "\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\" tasks
    thanks to a remark made by @s1ave77
    plus I was already thinking of doing it.
    The uninstaller unlocks the tasks, but leaves them disabled.
    You can enable them manually if you want to unless they turn
    themselves back on first. :)
    This is absolutely all I can do to help those who choose
    to leave the windows update service running in the script
    to use the Store. The Store and Windows Update are so tied
    together that you can't have one without the other so I've
    come up with the best compromise I can without harming
    the operation of the store or allowing unwanted updates.
    Changelog from version 2.4.5
    Fixed store problems.
    Thanks @jmdbox
    Uninstall previous version before installing this one.
    Changelog from version 2.4.4
    Windows Defender updates every 4 hours now.
    This version is greatly improved in many ways.
    Details here and here.

    WUMT Wrapper Script v2.5.6 (December 31, 2018)
    Info (My Digital Life) / Download (Majorgeeks)
    Version 2.5.6 supports 1809 and LTSC
    Uninstall 2.5.5 or any previous version using that version's uninstaller before installing or running 2.5.6.

    1) Now disables upfc.exe
    2) Script includes Windows Update Manager (WuMgr) v0.9b along with Windows Update Minitool (WUMT) giving you a choice of which to use in the menu to perform updates.
    3) Script uses NSudo 6.1 instead of Powerrun (NSudo thread here) to lock update hijacker files. NSudo is faster and just works better.
    4) Fixed accidental unicode in _readme.txt which caused strange characters to display in Oriental languages. (No, really, I fixed it this time!)
    5) Script in addition to uninstalling Windows 10 Update Assistant, creates and locks empty %systemroot%\UpdateAssistant and %systemroot%\UpdateAssistantV2 folders to stop Update Assistant from ever installing from an update. Now no need to run the script again after an update!
    6) Fixed rare task creation error problem.
    7) Not just some, but now all Update Hijacker folder and file permissions are now removed as TrustedInstaller as required by 1809.
    8) Wrapper Script Start Menu folder now has a "Version" icon to easily see what version of the wrapper you have installed.

    Hello All:

    On very rare occasions when running WUMT v20.12.2016, a "Check for updates" operation returns the following status in the lower pane:
    Code:
    [HH:MM:SS PM]: Searching for updates: Succeeded with errors
    Q1: Does a temporary log file exist for pursuing the errors?

    Q2: Can a more verbose mode be invoked to see the error details? Windows Event Logs?

    Thanks everyone.

    I have used WUMT extensively in the past for Windows 10. It works well.

    However, I recently ran into an issue where my windows update does not work at all. I've tried WUMT, I've tried downloading the KB's and installing them directly. Nothing works. I even used WUMT script to ensure that my windows update was enabled. Still, I cannot install any windows updates. When I get some time, I'm going to run the Windows Repair Tool and see if that fixes Windows update for me.

    so I presume in your case it might be your computer/connection/windows not WUMT.

    Do you use any of those anty-spy, telemetry, other c*ap tools? I think alot of people start to have problems cos of that. that's at least my impression after reading thrue the win10 threads on privacy/telemetry/other spy c*ap.

    I hope someone else pitches in so I know if I can use WUMT when I start using win10.

    thanks.

    Sledgehammer (formerly WUMT Wrapper Script) 2.6.0 (April 26, 2019)
    Info (My Digital Life) / Download (Majorgeeks)
    Changelog from 2.5.5:
    1) Put askwoody.com MS-DEFCON rating on first screen.
    2) Tasks now work in any folder name in any language while still retaining task creation error message just in case!!! Thank you @rpo for fixing this problem that has been bugging me for a long time.
    3) Moved WDU and Wub_task to task scheduler \Microsoft\Sledgehammer folder to work in a multi-user environment. 2.6.0 automatically deletes the tasks in old locations when script is run just in case.
    4) Create dummy locked %systemdrive%\Windows10Upgrade folder in addition to "%ProgramFiles%\rempl", "%systemroot%\UpdateAssistant", "%systemroot%\UpdateAssistantV2". Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant now cannot be installed under any circumstances even if you try to force install it manually. Folders are system/hidden and can only be seen in file explorer if "protected operating system files" are unhidden.
    5) added "ping pool.ntp.org" internet connection check before configurator that can be bypassed by pressing a key in case of known working but unreliable internet connection. There's no point in enabling wuauserv or running WUMT or WuMgr without an internet connection, but the script will still let you override the internet check if you really want to. (Is this address available world-wide? If not, what is? If not, the script will still work)
    6) Put "run WUMT or WuMgr" option in Configurator for one less screen of options to make things simpler for the user. Thanks @rpo
    7) Move all exe's and other unnecessary files to bin folder in script folder.
    8) Put recovery script and readme for same in recovery folder in script folder.
    9) Put uninstall files in uninstall folder.
    10) Rename the "Version" entry in the start menu to the version of the script, i.e. "Version X.X.X".
    11) Included all known WuMgr translations in "Translations.ini" file (and all known WUMT translation files in "bin\WUMT Translations" folder. Thanks @Carlos Detweiller.
    Credits not finished.
