mbsaacli.exe /xmlout /catalog wsus.cab /unicode

It gave me this error message :

Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer
Version 2.0 (2.0.5029.2)
(C) Copyright 2002-2005 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

An error occurred while scanning for security updates. (0x8024400a)

Any Idea?

Make sure that BITS and the Automatic Updates service are started. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
2. In the list of services, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Properties.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
4. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.
5. Right-click Background Intelligent Transfer Service, and then click Properties.
6. In the Startup type list, click Manual, and then click Apply.
7. If Service status is set to Stopped, click Start, and then click OK.

Still doesn't work! The whole idea of this is that I would like to audit the client operating system without asking the client to install MBSA or connecting to the internet. So the idea is that I send the  mbsaccli.exe and wsus.cab to the client and the client should be able to run it using command line or a batch script.
