Failed Task Sequence Notifies User in System Tray

I have created a task sequence in SCCM 2012 to uninstall KB3161608 Windows Update.  The command line used is C:\Windows\System32\wusa.exe /uninstall /kb:3161608 /quiet /norestart /log

If KB3161608 is installed on the machine that I deploy this to, there are no issues.  If the machine doesn't have the KB installed, the user is notified in the system tray "Installation failed", "The software installation was not successful. Click to view the details."

Is there a way to check to see if the Windows KB update is installed before executing the command?  If not, is there a way to not notify the user that the installation failed?

Hi,

Yes there is, especially if you are using a TS. Set the options to filter condition that only triggers if the patch is installed in the first place.

You can test before-hand with WMIC:

WMIC QFE get caption,hotfixID,installedon

Open in new window


which, after a long, long pause, will show *all* hotfixes with those columns.
Then to home in on the hotfix use:
WMIC QFE where hotfixid="KB3161608"

For the TS filter, the syntax is slightly different so will look like this:

select * from win32_QuickfixEngineering where HotfixID Like 'KB3161608'

Open in new window


So, click on the TS, click options, click Add then chose WMI and type that in.
