Cannot /wuforce WUA to 7.2.6001.784 from version 7.2.6001.788 onWindows Server 2008

  1. Greetings!

    I am facing problem with downgrading WUA with /wuforce option on
    Windows 2008 Server Ent SP1 x86-32 or Windows Vista Ent SP1 x86-32,
    this works fine with Windows 2003 Server Std SP2 x86-64 endpoint.

    Win-2008/Vista endpoint is having 7.2.6001.788 and I have to downgrade
    it to 7.0.6000.381, but it shows error message - "Install is not
    needed since Windows Update Agent is already installed", when I tried
    with downgrading it to 7.1.6001.65(later than 7.0.6000.381) it worked
    fine.

    I am wondering if anyone has faced this problem, or know workarround.

    Thanks
    Pushkaraj

  3. [X-post to Vista General and Windows Server General]

    Why would you want to downgrade WUA?

  5. To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you include all of previous
    message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.

  6. I don't know offhand, but perhaps 7.0.6000.381 is earlier than the version that
    is built into Windows 2008/Vista SP1?

    Harry.
