Scritpting Windows Update question
I'm scripting Windows Update as part of a system deployment process using the
API. One thing that I noticed is, when I use the UpdateSearcher method with
"IsInstalled=0 and Type='Software'" it will list ALL updates irrespective of
that update's priority.

I've searched http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...26(VS.85).aspx
for anything that would indicate the ability to search for "high-priority"
updates only. But, I didn't find anything; or I don't know what I'm looking
for.

Is it possible specify that only crtical updates or security updates (as
they are classfied on WSUS 3.0) when scripting WU?

Thank you

Ted

RE: Scritpting Windows Update question
Well, there's nothing like answering your own question. Sheesh. Sorry
folks. Thick skull here. Two days of searching and I just have to learn to
link up my properties and methods using the msdn website.

Ok:

IUpdate::MsrcSeverity Property

The MsrcSeverity property retrieves the Microsoft Security Response Center
severity rating of the update.

Property values are: Critical, Important, Moderate, Low
