Current Windows Update options are not initially read from "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update" and the application default of Automatic Update (4) is set - overwriting the value already there
- if Auto Update is disabled (a value of AUOptions = 1).
In other words, if I:
- have a system that I have explicitly used "scregedit /au 1" to disable auto-updates
- open Core Configurator for the first time
- view the Windows Update option page
==> Windows Update shows incorrectly that Windows Updates are set to enabled and automatic
- select close (not apply)
==> Core Configurator will change the AUOptions value to 4 - even though it was correctly set to 1 and I did not select Apply.
