    I have searched online and no one seems to have had this issue, so perhaps
    its just a problem with my install of WSUS?

    All 1540 updates are for the same driver - AC'97 Audio

    I have tried resynchronising to see if they would be marked as expired, but
    no joy.

    Just wanting to know if this has happened to anyone else.
    I'm just rebooting the server now and when i comes back up i will see if its
    sorted itself out.

  2. Different hardware IDs. This is a known issue for the entire history of
    WSUS.
    Nope. They're still valid drivers.
    It won't. :)


    Suggestion: Find the AC'97 Audio driver(s) that you actually need for
    installation, and the decline the other 1530-some.

  5. It *is* happening. But there's a lifecycle development time between when the
    WSUS team gets the =functionality= in the core product, and when the driver
    manufacturers actually start using the capability with their next cycle of
    releases.

    I didn't mention it, because I wasn't aware it had been publicly posted. I
    heard about it in a Microsoft confidential session a couple of weeks ago.

    I wouldn't look for existing drivers to be repackaged... unless a particular
    manufacturer is in a really good mood with regard to Customer Service.
