Hi

I'm a beginner when it comes to this stuff.

I'm messing with the windows update agent and im having problems getting info from it.

My code can get the list of updates but i can get the Download URL's from it.

Heres my code so far:

CODE
#RequireAdmin

$UpdateSession = ObjCreate("Microsoft.Update.Session")

$UpdateSearcher = $UpdateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher()

MsgBox(4096, "Test", "Searching for updates..." )

$SearchResult = $UpdateSearcher.Search("IsInstalled=1")

$Updates = $SearchResult.Updates

If $searchResult.Updates.Count = 0 Then

MsgBox(4096, "Test", "None" )

Exit

EndIf

For $I = 0 to $searchResult.Updates.Count - 1

$update = $searchResult.Updates.Item($I)

MsgBox(4096, "Test", $I + 1 & "> " & $update.Title )

Next

$UpdateSearcher = $UpdateSession.CreateUpdateSearcher()

$updatesToDownload = ObjCreate("Microsoft.Update.UpdateColl")

For $I = 0 to $searchResult.Updates.Count - 1

$update = $searchResult.Updates.Item($I)

$updatesToDownload.Add($update)

MsgBox(4096, "Test", "Added: " & $update.Download.Content.DownloadUrl)

Next

MsgBox(4096, "Test", "Done" )

Exit

The link to the windows update agent site with the info is: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa387099(VS.85).aspx and the link to the item im trying to get working is here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa386129(VS.85).aspx

I have googled for hours, thanks for any help you can give.

It is not clear what your problem is. What is your question?

Im trying to get the program to give me the url's for the windows updates so i can download them and install them at another time. This can be done (or so it says) using the API of the windows update agent. As soon as i add what i think is needed to get it to give me the download url the program closes itself (even in scite) with no error message.

If i us the following:

CODE
For $I = 0 to $searchResult.Updates.Count - 1

$update = $searchResult.Updates.Item($I)

MsgBox(4096, "Test", $I + 1 & "> " & $update.Title )

MsgBox(4096, "Test", $I + 1 & "> " & $update.Download.Content.DownloadUrl ); <---------- New line

Next

The program closes with no error and does not run to the end.

I think its something to do with the syntax of the "$update.Download.Content.DownloadUrl" but i cant find any examples in other languages.

Hope this makes it clearer what im trying to do.
