how do you get windows xp to update???

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Herbert C Lebovitz, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. wuauclt.exe was not running.

    I ran it with /detectnow.

    No AU icon appeared in taskbar, and all icons are showing.

    From my little knowledge of this log, it says there were no updates
    that were needed.
    So I assume I am healthy again.
    Correct???
    Thanks,

  4. You'll know by November 9th.. or is it 16th...?
    Second Tuesday is when the patches are released.
    That would technically be the 8th.

    Try then.

  5. That would be my guess. Yes.

    BTW it's the same result you had the last time when I asked you
    if you were getting your updates via some other means,
    such as (e.g.) manual downloading and installing.


    What does the MBSA tell you that you need if anything?



    HTH
