I am approving Windows Patches from a central console and I do NOT want to install Silverlight or Skype on computers that don't already have them.

What are the KB numbers for the installation of Silverlight and Skype?

I do want all updates to Silverlight and Skype to be installed if the computer already has them installed.

Thanks

That doesn't help me figure out which ones are installation KB's vs. updates.
Thanks

Downloads to install full apps usually do not come with KB's
The download page for Silverlight is
https://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/

For Skype
https://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-windows/

Skype should be KB2876229 - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2876229

Microsoft Silverlight KB2977218 - If you already have it installed then it will show up as a different KB number, according to MS. If you do NOT have it install, it will show up as this KB#.

You do not seem to be able to decide whether you want to prevent updates for Silverlight and Skype or prevent fresh installations.

From the looks of it, Microsoft is doing the "updates" as total reinstalls, hence the way it will function as both a fresh install or an update. Kind of confusing, if you ask me, but that's probably how they intend to slip it in there on you.

If you do not have those apps installed, I suggest Windows Updates will not offer updates.
If you are worried based on the Win 10 situation, I suspect that was because MS chose to consider Win 10 as an update to Windows.

Sorry, i am seeing some conflicting information here, some answers are saying that Skype and Silverlight are installed as fresh copies from Windows Updates and another answer is saying they cannot be installed as Windows Updates, they are only updated if already installed.
I will have to do some testing myself with a new PC out of the box and looking to see if they are installed and if not confirm they are still not installed after windows updates.
Thanks.

As I posted in https:#a41761800 Win Updates will not offer UPDATES to Skype or Silverlight unless you have them installed already.
