Hi,

I will have to install the WSUS client on PCs stored into a Workgroup (not in a Domain). My WSUS Server is Version 3.0 SP1
On Windows XP I installed this Register Key :

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000001
"TargetGroupEnabled"=dword:00000000
"WUServer"="http://My WSUS"
"WUStatusServer"="http://My WSUS"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU]
"AUOptions"=dword:00000003
"AutoInstallMinorUpdates"=dword:00000000
"DetectionFrequency"=dword:00000016
"DetectionFrequencyEnabled"=dword:00000000
"NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers"=dword:00000001
"NoAutoUpdate"=dword:00000000
"RebootRelaunchTimeout"=dword:00000020
"RebootRelaunchTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000001
"RebootWarningTimeout"=dword:00000001
"RebootWarningTimeoutEnabled"=dword:00000001
"RescheduleWaitTime"=dword:00000010
"RescheduleWaitTimeEnabled"=dword:00000001
"ScheduledInstallDay"=dword:00000000
"ScheduledInstallTime"=dword:00000003
"UseWUServer"=dword:00000001

Is this always ok for Windows 7 ?
Where can I find the parameters list ?

Thanks

first, i would install wsus 3.0 sp2, second the easiest way to get the settings you want is to go to a windows 7 test machine, go to gpedit.msc and browse to local computer policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative templates -> windows components -> Windows update.

There are the settings, you can configure the settings in gpedit on one machine then browse to the registry key location and export the values. you are ready to push those values to machines.
