Post Open Win updates
I need to finish a batch and the last part of it I want to open the windows update gui, for xp or 7, and just check for updates. I want to bring up gui and check for updates to verify they have all been installed, this is done in the first part of my batch using WUinstall. Does anyone know the command for XP and 7 to open windows update and do a check for updates? wuapp /startmenu opens the gui for win7 but does not do a check.

Thanks for the reply. The purpose of doing this is to have the actuall gui for windows update open up so i can see if there are any more updates that need installing after my previous batch is finished. Thats why i need the gui to open it is a visual thing. This all has to do with the previous batch you helped me with

All I have been doing is Google searching. I hope you are too.
I found the commands for Windows 7 on these two sites.

I will keep Google searching for the XP commands. Whoever finds it first gets a virtual beer!

This article says the switches are the same for XP and 7 but some of them do not work on XP.

I can't test as we have this disabled at work. We use HP's Radia client for updates.

fyi that command does not work in xp sp3

I read on another website that Automatic Updates must be enabled for that command to work as well. But that was a site that was talking about Windows 7. It may just be it doesn't work for XP. You may be out of luck for Xp.

I tried the -z -q option but it didn't do anything.

Why dont you run the portable app WinUpdatesList.exe file last in your batch file to show your installed updates..
