I've created a Windows 7 deployment that uses KACE 2000 to install the OS and copy over files from a server location, and then a series of batch files to carry out WSUS Offline updates, installing software, and so on. I've tried implementing the same thing with Windows 10, and while most everything works, I cannot seem to get Windows Update to automatically detect and install updates. In Windows 7 you can use wuauclt.exe /detectnow /updatenow but it will not work in Windows 10. This is just a minor nuisance but nonetheless, I would still like to include it in the automated install. Any thoughts or advice would be great, thanks.
