Bypass the corporate update services
February 16, 2015 Leave a comment
Don’t ask me when you would need it, but every once in a blue moon you may need to bypass your companies corporate setup for Windows Updates [the one that says that the Windows Updates are centrally managed].
I had that case recently but for not the regular reasons. Anyways the registry fix below would be good probably just for at most 90 minutes [the maximum time most group policies are applied is every 90 minutes]:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
; Restart Windows Update service after running this
As the comment notes, restart the Windows Update services after applying. A reminder to leave blank lines in the appropriate places.
Reminder: Use at your own risk. Test before using.
