Q

How can I verify that the SUS client is installed properly?

This Content Component encountered an error

I am running Windows XP and have been trying to get the SUS client installed and running. After searching, I found out that Windows 2000 SP2 and Win XP are already supposed to have this built in. But in Microsoft documentation it mentions checking the version of the wuaueng.dll file to see if the SUS client is ready to be configured and run. How can I verify that the SUS client is installed properly and configure it? Yes, Windows XP...

does include the AutoUpdate client. You probably only need to configure the AutoUpdate client settings on the Windows XP computer. Take a look at the this page for a list of the registry settings you need to modify.

Note that if you are running Active Directory, you'll need to import a group policy and modify the policy so that the computers receive the updated settings automatically. See the SUS Deployment Guide whitepaper for complete information: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/sus/susdeployment.mspx
