    Hello,

    please where are these Windows Update settings ("Never check for updates" - below) in registry?

    On ARM this "Change settings" option is missing, so I need to change it elsewhere.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    Is there also the setting "Give me the updates for other MS products" anywhere? I have noticed that option in Silverlight installation too.
    Also, is there any list for "ForcedReboot"=dword values? I have dword:00000002 on all my PCs and dword:00000001 on my Windows ARM tablet.

    Yes, it is:
    Code:
    "EnableFeaturedSoftware"=dword:00000001
    Thanks again...

    However it seems, it is for W7, because tickling that option in W8-1 doesn't do anything. :)

    That's require vbs script:
    Code:
    Set ServiceManager = CreateObject("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager")
    ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    
    Set NewUpdateService = ServiceManager.AddService2("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")
    
    or powershell command:
    Code:
    $ServiceManager = New-Object -ComObject "Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager"
    $ServiceManager.ClientApplicationID = "My App"
    $ServiceManager.AddService2("7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d",7,"")
