Ok, WSUS will also report "Not Applicable" if it has already been installed...Or if the Client has not yet checked in.


Have you double clicked on any of the "Not Applicable" to open up a further report?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

yes i have double checked; i have a PC in front of me with the issue; it's a vista 32 bit and it's communicating with WSUS yet when i go to "Check for Updates" it does not show IE9 as an option.

it does not have any pending updates that require a reboot either

"vista both x64 and x86"


If you are looking at "One" particular IE9(Say X64) version, WSUS will still list all the other computers and you will get "Not Applicable" for the X86 computers

i did approve all versions; i approve for x86 and i have a vista PC here as a test that did not get the ie9 installation; on WSUS it shows up as "Not Applicable"

"Not Applicable" can only mean 2 things, either it really doesnt apply or the client hasnt checked in yet.


Run the following on it to force it to check in right away



%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop bits
%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop wuauserv
%Windir%\system32\net.exe stop cryptsvc
reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate /v SusClientId /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v LastWaitTimeout /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v DetectionStartTime /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" /v NextDetectionTime /f
del %WINDIR%\WindowsUpdate.log /S /Q
rd /s /q %windir%\softwareDistribution
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start cryptsvc
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start bits
%Windir%\system32\net.exe start wuauserv
