  • 3. WSUS doesn't get localised versions of the Forefront client
    Hi Startet testing Forefront on client pc's. I have every thing setup and WSUS ( version 3.0 ) automatically give my english windows server 2003 machines the client components when i give them a forefront policy. But on Danish mashines (XP sp2 / vista ) they are "not applicable" ?? When looking at the forefront client details on the WSUS server it is stated that it supports english, german, Spanish... among others but not Danish!! How come WSUS doesnt get a danish ( and swedish for that matter ) version of the forefront client? i have the WSUS sync settings set to sync English, Danish and Swedish updates. It seems that I may have the same issue with the .Net 2.0 framework but appart from that WSUS is working as expected on all other updates. Regards Sen Lamb
  • 4. Can't attempt to re-download updates
    I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate X32 and i tried updating my computer. Some updates installed, others failed including the one I wanted the most, the Hold'Em Poker game :D, and others were cancelled cause my internet connection dropped and I cancelled the update. I click on search for updates, but it says that my comp is up to date. How can I download the updates that were cancelled or failed???

Similar Threads: update keeps scanning for new updates but does not display

windows update keeps scanning for new updates with no results. It scans for 
hours at a time and never displays anything. Is there a way to fix this 
problem or get the recommended updates for windows xp my self ? 

2.Windows Update keeps on scanning

When i try to update, and choose either custom or express, my computer is 
being scanned. But that's all that happens. It keeps on scanning without ever 
reaching a conclusion...

Any thoughts ?

3.Windows Update keeps scanning and won't load

I've been using Windows update for several years now without any problems 
(Win XP Home SP2, IE 7) but when I tried to use it today, regardless of 
whether I chose Automatic or Custom Updates, it just kept "scanning [my] 
computer for updates" and never loaded the actual list of available updates.

I have tried this several times already, all with the same result, and have 
let the page load for up to 15 minutes, whereas the process took around 30 
seconds previously, so I am quite certain that there must be a fault of some 
kind. I have not, however, received any error messages - the updates list 
just kept loading/scanning my computer indefinitely - and so all the KB 
articles were useless to me.


On a vaguely related note, is it true that there is now a Windows XP Service 
Pack 3?

Thanks in advance!

4.Microsoft Update Keeps Scanning For Updates....

...and doesn't end.

I've already gone through the re-registering of all applicable WU*.DLL 
components - rebooted - and it's still not fixed.

Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this continuous scanning that never ends?
