    I've struggle to find solution why my WSUS client did not get listed and produce many error such as the above and the below.

    WARNING: GetConfig failure, error =
    Below is the fix. I did exactly as stated and all my errors dissapear. It's not the proxy, its not the server but this registry seems to be the culprit.

    Microsoft Guru - Any ideas? I spend weeks searching this solution.

    Thank you all.

    Got it!

    REG Fix
    The issue was with the value of REG_BINARY value called WINHTTPSETTINGS under the key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\internet settings\connections

    I renamed the key WINHTTPSETTINGS to WINHTTPSETTINGS_ and ran CLIENTDIAG.EXE with success.

    I sincerely hope this helps those out there.
