Steady State breaks Windows Updates
I have a Windows XP SP2 machine. Windows Updates is set under group policy to
pull down updates once a week at a set time from or WSUS server. It works
just fine.

Problem: When I install Steady State and have it take control of the updates
I get the following message in the Event Viewer - "Automatic updates failed
while trying to run Microsoft Updates." The updates don't get applied.

How does Steady State take control of the updates and how do I fix it?

Re: Steady State breaks Windows Updates
We don't install SP3 because some of a our proprietary software is not
covered if we do so.

I've already posted on the Steady State forum and was told to post here -
http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/e...4-aa39811141a3

Any other thoughts? I really need some direction to go. Updates works just
fine until Steady state is installed and in control of updates. If I turn off
control updates works again. Seems to me to be a problem with Steady State
talking to Windows Updates.

Thanks.

Re: Steady State breaks Windows Updates
You're going to be in a real pickle 6 months from now: Computers running
WinXP SP2 will NOT be offered any further critical security updates,
Automatic Updates will cease to function, and Windows Update website will
not be available after 12 April 2010 until and unless SP3 is installed.

The Moderator in Steady State forum no doubt assumed that you had either a
Pro Support Contract or a Software Assurance licence with MS, since you
cited updating via WSUS. Since you ended up posting here, I'll assume you
do not have such a contract or licence.

Since you are attempting to update via WSUS, let me point you to the
WSUS-specific newsgroup and recommend that you repost there:
