Windows Search 4 coming to WU

Hello folks,

I am finally back from a long vacation, hopefully everyone is doing alright. Since there has been a lot of movement in the blog, I also wanted to bring to your attention the post that the MU folks have just added to their blog which relates to the availability of Windows Search 4. As a reminder, this update will not automatically install on WSUS clients. Windows users will either see it as an "Optional" or "Recommended" update depending on the version you are running.

Thank you.

  • yes that works, but unfortunally not as "update" only.

    So for Vista, no problem cause already have WDS 3.

    But if you want to update Only existings wds on XP,

    you will have no luck, cause i will install on XP/W2K3,

    even no older version is installed.

  • Now we're waiting for Windows Installer 4.5 to be avaible on WU :-)

  • Hey guys, just in case you're wondering, Microsoft is not too interested in making WS 4.0 highly available for XP, especially to the enterprise. As many have noted, WS 4.0 for XP is conspicuously absent from WSUS, and there is no Windows installer (.msi) WS 4.0 package, which would make it easy to deploy via AD GPO. Hmmm. Methinks marketing is trying to bait for Vista. Not biting here. I'll at least wait for Windows 7 (aka the marketing service pack for Vista), thank you very much. ;-)

    By the way, it's not that I don't like Vista. I have been running Vista at home for a few years.

  • Publish another update in the existing.
