Yesterday I realised that Windows Update wasn't working on my Windows 7 (32-bit) laptop.

I wrote a Powershell script that uses the Windows Update Agent API (IUpdate Searcher, IUpdate Downloader, IUpdate Installer etc.). Apart from the fact that I'm using vbscript instead of Powershell, the only difference is that I say Huh.

For Windows 10, it’s the “Windows Update Troubleshooter”, and for prior versions of Windows, there are “Fix It” troubleshooters.

Starting in May 2017 the complete list of monthly update can be found on this separate page.

: Until MS breaks something again Note: The above dates only refer to the "speedup" update, the "magic" patch, not the whole page!

This How To is valid for Win7 SP1 and 8.1, which have been newly installed or haven't been updated for some time.
