    Great job. Everything OK!

    Is there a way to move it up - higher in control panel window?
    Now it's on bottom right after flash player.

    Thank You!

    Update to v2:

    Changes:
    -Now it works same way as in W8-1-1.
    -It now supports the localized tooltips and module name strings.

    Download link changed in 1st post.

    People, who already have v1 installed, just delete "wucltux.ico" file after registering v2's REG, since it is no longer needed.

    Post screenshot, pls.

    If you don't have a VM with W811, you can proceed this way :

    Code:
    1. Copy wumt_x86.exe or wumt_x64.exe depending on your architecture to "%programfiles%\Windows Update\wumt.exe".
    2. Copy wumt_lang.ini to "%programfiles%\Windows Update\wumt_lang.ini".
    3. Copy/paste the spoiler content and save as a .reg file. Localize and customize this .reg file.
    4. Double click on the .reg file to import it into the registry. 
    
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{36eef7db-88ad-4e81-ad49-0e313f0c35f8}]
