Windows update script (powershell) RRS feed

  • Question

  •       Hi! I need to test the behavior of my application to install Windows updates to version 1803. I have Windows 10 version 1607 and version 1703. I want on the virtual machine to lift Windows server 2016 in a role of WSUS, and 2 virtual machines with different versions of Windows. Can I do it with powershell script? Can I use a script to select and download updates to WSUS? or should I just do it manually?

          Is it possible the script in which when you run one powershell script and put the virtual machine is configured for WSUS updates are downloaded and 2 virtual machines updated to version 1803?

          I used the PSWindowUpdate module to go from 1603 to 1803, but I always got errors on different virtual machines. Run the command:


    From the entire list of updates, only one is not downloaded (Future update to windows 10, version 1803 - KB3012973 - size: 3GB). even those updates that come after it are downloaded and installed.

    Who knows in what there can be a problem and how?

    Sorry, I don't understand much, but I want to understand
