Hi,

I'm new to autopatcher. I ran it for the first time today on my Win7 Ent/SP1 machine. Running Windows Update shows my machine as fully patched, but autochecker shows a boatload of available updates. What accounts for the discrepancy?

Ok.. first things first... Hello!
on to the next thing... are the updates in AP you are looking at blue? If they are blue they are already installed.

first off...
Arguments file was empty. Shame on you!
for shame!
hmm log shows you are missing some files. Might want to re-download the Common script. <-- not a deal breaker but, if your missing the "windows_common.apm" you will not see any of the updates that are children of that apm.
OK says your using windows 7 SP1 x86... you downloaded the script for it... Check.

Next can you give an example KB update you see that Autopatcher says is NOT installed?

Sorry--not sure what the arguments file is or how to use it.

Autopatcher says that KB2503665 needs to be installed. Registry shows it's there.

ok... just to test this...
go to your windows directory.
find
system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\Package_for_KB2503665~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.1.0.cat

That file should be there.

You can also run cmd prompt hit start button and type in cmd and hit enter. Now.. type in

Code: Select all

wmic qfe | find “2503665”
you should see only one line with that update if it is installed.

also... the arguments file is there to throw switches in that you normally use. /verbose for example. If you don't have anything in there it is useless. It doesn't harm anything to have an empty file there though.

Typing wmic qfe | find “2503665” in CMD results in no response; also that file is absent in Catroot\{F75....

Autopatcher is doubtless correct that(those) update(s) is(are) absent. What's confusing is that autopatcher is telling me I'm missing 25 updates that Windows Update says I don't need.

Given that I'm running autopatcher on an older, already-updated system, might it be that these 25 updates are earlier versions of updates that have been superseded?

It is possible since that update is part of MS11-046... which was put out in Jun of 2011.
God I hate trying to figure out superseded updates because it is so convoluted when your looking that far back

KB2592799 supersedes KB2503665(but only for XP and server 2003) This is all I could figure out since there are a TON of security bulletins to go though since 2011. Care to look yourself? https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/lib ... 32604.aspx
WhatACrock might know more about this sort of thing.

edit:
ohh here we go... Found an easier way to search... https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... t-for-2017 Go to bottom of page and start searching for the KB of the updates listed... you can see what update superseded what update...

For you: KB3092601 -> KB2961072 -> KB2875783 -> KB2645640 -> KB2503665 (win7)
So KB3092601 should be in the list not KB2503665.


Please list the KB files you see and we will get them removed and or updated with superseded updates.
