Windows VDA – Script to re-install the Microsoft’s Update add-on

If someday you fall on a machine that the Microsoft Update does not want to install for a reason X, there is a quick fix for that issue.

There is the script to run to enable it :

Set ServiceManager = CreateObject(“Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager”)
ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = “My App”
‘add the Microsoft Update Service by GUID
Set NewUpdateService = ServiceManager.AddService2(“7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d”,7,””)

There is the script to disable it :

Set ServiceManager = CreateObject(“Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager”)
ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = “My App”
‘remove the Microsoft Update Service by GUID
ServiceManager.RemoveService(“7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d”)

 

Thanks !
