Hi Folks -  Noticed a little confusion from our blog post yesterday regarding the Windows Update Agent Update availability.  Last night's blog post was to give you some lead time before we started rolling out and making our standalone WUA update available.   We are on schedule to start the rollout Monday, 11/3/08.  Hope this helps and sorry for any confusion.

  • The "confusion" has been related on the MSKB articles having been updated with links to download the standaolone of WUA 7.2.6001.788 while the download didn't work (resulting in a 404 not found error). That's fixed now.

    LONG GetUpdateCollection(CComPtr<IUpdateSession2>& lpSession, CComPtr<IUpdateCollection>& lpUC, LPCWSTR lpwsSearchPack = NULL)throw(_com_error)


    LONG lCntUpdates = 0;

    CComPtr<IUpdateSearcher> lpSearcher;


    CComPtr<IUpdateServiceManager> lpManager;

    CComPtr<IUpdateService> lpSvc;

    if (NULL != lpwsSearchPack)








    BSTR bsSvcId = NULL;





    CComPtr<ISearchResult> lpSearchResult;

    CheckError(lpSearcher->Search(SysAllocString(L"AutoSelectOnWebSites = 1 and IsHidden = 0 and IsInstalled = 1"), &lpSearchResult));

    OperationResultCode rc;


    if (rc == orcSucceeded)



    CString str(_T("Update Info:"));


    if (lCntUpdates > 0)


    // too much item, so get first 6 items

    lCntUpdates = lCntUpdates > 6 ? 6 : lCntUpdates;

    for (LONG l = 0; l < lCntUpdates; ++l)


    CComPtr<IUpdate> lpUpdate;

    CheckError(lpUC->get_Item(l, &lpUpdate));

    CComBSTR bs = NULL;


    str += _T("\r\n");

    str += bs;


    CComPtr<IUpdateDownloadContentCollection> lpDCC;


    LONG lDCC = 0;

    while (lDCC-- > 0)
