Install Windows Updates with PowerShell? You can ask yourself why would you want to do this? Well it’s easy to do and can be easily automated.
First you will need version 5 of PowerShell which is apart of Windows 10. Since version 5 you can now download and install modules online from the PowerShell Gallery.
First thing you need to do is confirm the version of PowerShell you have:
If you have version 5 or above, then confirm you are running PowerShell as administrator and continue with:
Install-Module PSWindowsUpdate Get-Command –module PSWindowsUpdate
Then you will need to register to use the Microsoft Update Service not just the default Windows Update Service.
Add-WUServiceManager -ServiceID 7971f918-a847-4430-9279-4a52d1efe18d
To check for updates, then run:
Get-WUInstall –MicrosoftUpdate –AcceptAll –AutoReboot
