Enable Microsoft Update silently. Please help !

Posted: 01-01-2009, 03:56 PM
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

our company is Gold certified partner. I was redirected to this newsgroup
from the partner newsgroups because those apparently only serve break&fix
issues. I do need some help on an unattended issue:

We have created unattended Vista x86 and x64 installation images and are
distributing them internally and for our clients through various ways (WDS or
dvd images). We have everything working except for enabling Microsoft Update
instead of the default Windows Update. Currently our administrators have to
manually enable this by changing the relevant setting in the control panel ->
Windows Update.

We are not using WSUS currently and we don´t want to use group policies
because it should be working for all our customers so basically we need the
solution to be some sort of registry hack, inf file etc. that we can deploy
during or after the automated Vista installation.

Can you please help me with this ? We did not find any information in the
registry that could be modified nor does it seem to work using muweb.cab
(which worked in Windows XP) because after enabling MS Update we could not
find any muweb file on the system.

Thanks a lot for your help !
Alex
