Windows updates via PowerShell

So with windows updates being temperamental at times i have found that windows PowerShell also has a module for updates. i have been using it for a while and seems to work every time with out failure. it is super simple.

PowerShell Module


Copy the whole module folder (after unzipping) to %WINDIR%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules


Start up PowerShell ISE as admin from admin tools

  • Set-ExecutionPolicy

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

  • Import-Module

Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate

  • Run the Update module


The rest should be automated with some prompts
