      Windows Update Manager (WuMgr) is a open source alternative to the well known WUMT (Windows Update Mini Tool)

      it can be found on github: https://github.com/DavidXanatos/wumgr


      The tool hast the full functionality of WUMT +

      1. ability to auto download wsusscn2.cab
      2. GPO to disable windows update on pro/home win10 machines, by setting WSUS urls to ” “
      3. ability to hide windows update page from the settings app when automatic update is disabled
      4. ability to download updates using direct downloads (wuauserv can be blocked in the firewall)

      Planed features to come soon:

      1. ability to install downloaded updated without using windows update agent api
      2. To better integrate with means of blocking automatic windows update on windows 10 editions which do not respect the Group Policies.
      3. To provide an optional user friendly automatic update mechanism which
        • never forces a reboot !!!
          only searched for updates when the PC is not in use (optional)
        • allows the user to select what class of updates to install, for example avoid feature upgrades or only install critical security patches, etc
        • simply put an automatic update mechanism based on consent and not violence, updates are like 6 πŸ˜‰
      4. more to come…
