    Normally, I would run the tool to see if it returns an error.

    From the ReadMe.TXT

    Error Reporting
    i)        Should the tool find an error the tool will attempt to display the error code and if possible display a readable description of the error so that the user can diagnose the problem.

    Hence why I posted the link to it. We cannot tell you how to fix somehting, if all we get from you is "one client xp computer can not receive windows updates from wsus.".

    1. If you are using a GPO to configure the client with WSUS, make sure that it receives it – you can run RSOP.msc on the client

    2. Run the VB script (on the client) from the second comment of this question to reset SusClientID:

    3. Wait around 10 minutes and run wuauclt.exe /reportnow to force the client to report
