After downloading updates to Windows XP PC from WSUS server, is there a way that the remote PC can "request" its updates to be installed?As opposed to setting a deadline in the WSUS server.

On our WSUS server, I download the updates to the PC group, but do not set a deadline.

What we want to do is launch a script/request for the updates to install.

  • That will force the machine to detect updates from the WSUS server, but it won't force an install of the updates.
