It appears this project will not continue to be updated?
2.7.3 rc1a is still working for me. (I'm not using Win 11 yet.) I see @pf100 is still monitoring forum occasionally, but probably has other well-deserved priorities.
Yes he is still watching. Just be patient, he will come back in a few weeks.
The silence here is deafening!
Slight wind and a few tumbleweeds.

I don't proposed nothing
Just another option ...
Didn't check it with set /p ..
Worth a try ..
That's what I mean: give another option, suggest, propose, etc. Good contribution.
Since win 11 came out I have been using sledgehammer v2.72 without problems.
Until today when I updated win 11 from built 22621-521 to 22621-674 the ms antivirus no longer updates automatically as before but is work only by manually downloding the signatures.
I hope you are in good health and can help us solve this problem.
Thanks for this wonderful program
Did you check if the wdu task is still working?
WDU not working -- Sledge working
The windows defender signature update is done by the wdu.cmd script (in the bin subfolder). This script is started by the wdu scheduled task at 00:01, 06:01, 12:01 and 18:01 every day. Make sure this task terminated successfully.
As I said above now everything works as expected windows def signature updates regularly while WU gets stuk. Sledgehammer v2.72 does its job on win11pro 22621.674
So none of the sledgehammer iterations work for me. is there some log I can check/post here to troubleshoot??
You might get some suggestions to troubleshoot if you can provide a little more detail:
- Your Windows version.
- What's not working? For example:
- Does the script fail to run or does it give an error message?
- If you tried 2.73RC1a (the last version compiled into a Windows installer file) does the Windows setup program fail to install?
- Does the Sledgehammer script run but doesn't do the job of disabling Windows Update?
- Does it disable Windows Update but won't load WuMgr or WUMT or run other script options?
I'm still using v.2.73RC1a without problems monthly on three computers with most recent Win 10 Pro. On Win 11, I believe others are using that Sledgehammer version, or 2.73RC1, or even 2.72.
@pf100, I hope you're staying well and that you'll be back among us soon.
I thought I'd report what I think is a minor issue I've seen in some of my computers running Windows 10 21H2 and Sledgehammer 2.7.3 rc1a (which you approved as slight modification of 2.7.3 rc1). The Windows menu options for shutdown and restart will sometimes include options to "Update and shutdown" or "Update and restart." This might indicate that some sort of WU residual artifacts are left after updating with WuMgr in Sledgehammer, even after rebooting. However, I haven't noticed any significant effect of choosing the update restart options or found that a new update occurred.
I also had some notification text lately "New Windows Updates need to be installed". I guess it's related to the WUB task updating Defender, which gives WU just enough time to search for new updates and know they exist.
