It's another way to do it
I like the group policy method
Not for me, i more then often get error - internal failure.
Right now i am looking for an alternative.
"Internal failure" is rather vague. That's not much for me to work with.
Perhaps stop using a pre-release OS and expecting it to act like a stable OS? That's usually the best alternative.
Well, that is the only message i get. There pop ups a frame saying; Checking for updates failed: internal error.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled, still the same. Even on W11
I've seen that error message, but extremely rarely on both Windows 10 & 11.
I don't believe it's an issue with Sledgehammer, but with the network you're using at the time.
I restart Sledgehammer a second time (possibly after a reboot), and it then completes normally.
I had that problem before and after pulling my hair out for days it turned out to be bad ram.
Edit: I had it happen after a clean install but then rebooted and everything was fine.
@BT 1 Something is going on but it doesn't seem to be a serious issue because updates are successful for me after I try again after a reboot. I can't tell if it's Windows 11 itself or if it's an issue with WuMgr/WUMT or a combination of all of the above. I'm just going to wait for a while after windows 11 is released to the public and see how it goes because it's still basically beta right now. I'm about 99.9% sure it's not the script itself.
Have had the same problem with Win 7 Pro using WUB v1.6 and WUMT. Obviously not using Sledgehammer but may help with diagnosis.This also works OK after reboot
I get it wihen running WuMgr in Sledge and when running WuMgr separately. After reading the posts above, maybe it is a compatibility issue with W.update. Restarting the pc all the time is ridiculous, something is flawed and then i do not want it. I am using another soft instead which can pause updates, but not for MD, for a looong time and using WUSH to choose updates.
Ms software; Windows updates show and hide, WUSH, does not by the way have that problem.
Today in Windows 11 I installed CU KB5005635 with the script with WuMgr and had no problems. (@BT 1 I only had a failed update and reboot to fix it the first time after a clean install and I haven't had to do it since then with 2 more update sessions.)
Either that was a fluke, or the problem is driver update installation after a clean install which is the only time I know that updates bypass WuMgr which could cause a conflict which is my wild guess as to what's going on here.
But that's just a guess. If a later update fails after all the drivers are updated then that guess is probably wrong.
I'll contact some devs and see if I can get to the bottom of this.
In the meantime just keep reporting any issues and I'm pretty sure it'll get figured out eventually.
Thanks for everybody's input.
I recently was pm'd a question and I thought it was appropriate to post it and the answer here:
Q: Windows 11 is coming out soon. I want to ask you have you updated sledgehammer so it blocks windows updates for windows 11? Will the new version block updates for both windows 10 and windows 11?
A: As far as I can tell there is no difference in the update subsystem between 10 and 11. So far the script works great with 11. If anything changes the script will be updated.
