That's just the ActiveX component that needs to be installed for Windows Update... it's not the actuall Windows Update Client.

@all,

I believe that is not true. I am building a unattended installation for a major company in holland and also experienced this. When I check the wuaueng.dll after installation it is version 7.0.6000.374 and when I goto windows Update and install the update this file has version 7.0.6000.381.

When I check my installation against Windows Update it will show zero updates but to see that I have to do an update of the Windows Update agent and that is what I want to solve.

I want to download this update and integrate with the installation but I am unable to find the files. Something similar is happening with Windows Vista but that is explained in another thread on this forum. That one I have solved.

Greetings,

Bitfrotter

I believe the WUA files have been updated (7.0.6000.374 -> 7.0.6000.381), but the standalone installer (windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe) has not yet been updated. windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe can be used to integrate those files into the installation. I suspect that will follow shortly.

oh yes that right. waiting for 3.1 or v4. is it possible to extract v3 and replace new files from the SoftwareDistribution folder? some files are deleted as soon as the installation is over.

you're right. Do you know a method how to integrate the new files into a new XP disc?
