What is the best type of Wuinstall source to compile?


Wuinstall offers several update options that can trigger other updates. These options include Microsoft, Windows, WSUS, and GPO Default.

  • Microsoft:
    • This option includes all updates that are related to or supported by Microsoft.

  • Windows:
    • Only the Windows updates of the device are included.

  • WSUS and GPO Default:
    • These options share released updates deemed appropriate for the device. However, unlike GPO Default, users must possess and download WSUS themselves, while GPO Default is accessible to everyone.

There are two instances where it is necessary to specify the Wuinstall source.

  • In the Update Center:
    • The Update Center scans for updates that the computer may be able to install. Thus, it is recommended to use a source with the most updates possible, such as Microsoft. Using a source with fewer updates can result in important updates being overlooked.

  • In the Job:
    • When creating a Wuinstall job, users must select which updates will be installed. For this purpose, it is advised to use a Wuinstall Source that only installs desired updates, such as WSUS or GPO Default.
