  • Can I use s.u.s or w.s.u.s on vista service pack 1 home premium?

    I am trying to increase my security and would like to try and install s.u.s. or w.s.u.s. and I have read on this site that it can be done but I need to know if it can be done on my particular o.s.
    Pleased to be a part of the forum as I have just joined...

    WSUS is designed to be run on a server class OS. For home use, I see no advantage in using it - it is no more secure than configuring your computer to update itself automatically. In either case the updates are all coming from the same source - Microsoft.

      Hi, petra.legion000.
      Welcome to the forums! Please read the forum rules ...
      Then you can come back with details (much more details) about your environment (office? work? any servers around?).
      Just to add to gforceindustries' answer:

      The direct answer to your question is NO.
      Quote from Windows Server Update Services 3.0:

      System Requirements
      • Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
      • WSUS 3.0 Server Software Prerequisites:
        • Windows Server 2003 SP1 or later
        • IIS 6.0 or later
        • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
        • Microsoft Management Console 3.0
        • Microsoft Report Viewer
        • SQL Server 2005 SP1 is optional. Note if a compatible version of SQL Server is not installed already, WSUS 3.0 will install Windows Internal Database.
      You can also install it on SBS2003.

      In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.

        Indirectly, YES. You could setup a Virtual Server on Vista and have it running Win2K3 and the appropriate system requirements.
