    How do I highlight the updates in the list?

    Capture.PNG


    Create a wumt_config.ini file in the program folder . Write in it the following code (yellow example):
    Code:
    In the MarkedUpdates section , enter the required update items, which will be highlighted. The number is unlimited, you can continue "win_ x _kb_ n = 1234567" and so on. The name can be any, the main thing that it was different from the others.
    The MarkedUpdatesColor section is responsible for the highlight color. It is optional, you can delete it. If this section is missing, then by default the color will be used as in the example.

    different colors, change as you wish:

    At the first I am sorry @erpsterm35 for my very late answer, I was absent for a long time.

    Finally I have a good news. Because the trouble has vanished after 2 or 3 weeks... I don't understand the cause but at least, now the Windows Update MiniTool seem's to work fine again.
    No I haven't met any trouble to install the update(s) published this month (september 2018).

    Why are you so angry on WuMgr?
    I mean its not competing with any current tool, WUMT wasn't updated for two years it does not even try to compete.

    And WuMgr provides new functionality, like the option to auto download the wsusscn2.cab for "offline" updates, or being able to download found updates without the use of wuauserv,
    it also is able to search for updates if so configured in preset intervals, this is useful when normal windows update is disabled using the standard GPO (Enterprice) or the newer GPO's WUMT does not support (Pro/Home).

    Whats your interest in keeping an outdated tool artificially current?

    @DavidXanatos There is nothing you can say, nothing you can do. shewolf apparently has free reign at MDL to s**t on anyone's thread. I've reported shewolf to the admins, and they just look the other way. So all you can do is put this person on ignore, because the admins aren't going to do a god damn thing about it.
    Also, you're trying to use reasoning with an insane person. That never works. You'll just drive yourself crazy trying to reason with them.

    Then why are you calling them placebos?
    I mean WuMgr can do more than WUMT, that is a fact, so it has a measurable effect hence it's not a placebo, as simple as that.
    Calling a thing something its not is a typical dialectic strategy if one has for some non rational reasons resentments against that thing.

    What is your stake in WUMT I think its time for you to disclose that information, if you would just have been promoting it because it gives you functionality you always wanted but couldn't implement yourself, you would not be so negative if an other free alternative comes around.
    You would be genuinely happy to have an other tool that fulfills your update needs.
    Instead you seam to be hostile and keep promoting an outdated product.
    For me this strongly hints on you having some alternative motive, may be you are the author behind WUMT just have choose a new nick for this board.
    Or possibly you are just enjoying the attention evangelizing for WUMT gives you.
    If its the latter that you don't have to worry, you can also evangelize for WuMgr.

    Nope. I emailed (exchanged messages) the author in the past and he's a nice person. He also sent me a personal picture with friends in a park in his native Russia. Actually I still have his email.
    This is the reason behind. I'm 99.9% sure.

    If that is true, than you failed catastrophically at the task of spreading WUMT and furthering its adoption by the users.
    EDIT: And your statement is fundamentally wrong, its author obviously knows all its functions

    Well, being able to download the wsusscn2.cab for "offline" search is new, WUMT cant do that, or can it?
    Or, auto start and search for updates periodically, if so chosen by the user, WUMT cant do that, or can it?
    Use additional GPO's to disable automatic windows update on Pro/Home windows 10 editions, WUMT cant do that, or can it?

    What missing features are you referring to? The ability to color updates based on an ini file? I can easily add that if anyone uses this, anything else?

    Many users used WuMgr and did not complain about any major functionality missing in comparison to WUMT,
    so whatever may be missing, if anything not yet mentioned is really missing apparently is useless to the users at large.

    If you can't point to missing features than I call your bluff.

    Proof or its fake news, as simple as that.

    shewolf seems to be a real wacko. Probably best just to ignore her, since nothing good/positive seems to come from her.

    Hello

    I just read the 48 pages of this thread.
    There is still something unclear for me (sorry about my limitations!).
    If I choose to "download only, not install" the selected update, how do I use the downloaded update ?
    Is there a way execute it from inside WUMT, or do I have to execute it from the folder C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download ?
    If I have to execute it outside WUMT, do I have to close WUMT ?
    If I execute it outside WUMT, will the update be taken into account by WU and therefore be shown as installed in WUMT ?

    Thanks and regards

    Run "Install" when you want to install what you download, or configure "Scheduled" to install downloaded in desired time.

    Control Windows Update :p :laie:

    Many thanks for the very fast reply.
    If my understanding is correct, then I need to switch to "scheduled", select the day and time at which the download and installation will happen, and then use "Install updates".
    What is then the use of "download only, not install" ?

    Have a nice day.
