Knowledge Base FAQ Item #7280030


Q7280030: We monitor our servers to make sure the latest Windows updates are installed. We use the 'Windows Update' check for this purpose. However, we see that only one check is run at a time. And we cannot increase this number. How is this possible?

The ActiveXperts Windows Update check is based on the Microsoft 'Windows Update Agent API'. It has two drawbacks:

  • The library used is non re-entrant, which means that only one instance can run simultaneously
  • The library sometimes hangs - similar to Windows Update from the GUI itself.
