    • Dear Manuel,
      It looks the zip file of ENG version is still 0kb after download.
      
      Thanks
      
    • Hi,
      Problem solved. It looks IE can download the right file, but chrome cannot.
      
      Thanks

    • I'm hesitant to run your script since AVG identify Launcher.exe as http://www.avgthreatlabs.com/ww-en/virus-and-malware-information/pu/free/?utm_source=TDPU&utm_medium=RS&CTRY=dk&LNG=da&PRTYPE=AVF&V=2015&AI=0&BE=21198549&IDNT=QEVJRF9JZF90cmp8JW5hbWUlPUdlbmVyaWNfcy5HWkg&IDN=YzpcVXNlcnNcSmFjb2IgSGF1Z2FhcmRcRG93bmxvYWRzXFJlc2V0V1VcTGF1bmNoZXIuZXhl&utm_expid=34410884-35.CS_WEkTPR3ybFVKTDsXCHQ.0
      
      Especially since your script requires elevated privileges (running as administrator).
      
      Can you describe Launcher.exe in a bit more detail, like who wrote is (is it you or 3th party), what does it do and why would AVG identify it as a trojan?
    • Hi dotnetCarpenter2,
      
      In the file "Info.txt" is described with a little more detail the file "Launcher.exe".
      
      Also, you can see in the comments information regarding this file.
      
      Thanks.
  • Brilliant!

  • Script Hangs at Failed to Stop Appl Identity Service
    6 Posts | Last post August 28, 2016
    • Manuel, I'm running Vista SP2 32-bit 6.0.6002. It halts Crypto, BITS, and Update Services, but returns an Open Service Failed 1060 when trying to stop the Application Identity service. I cannot even find the service in Vista. Is there a work-around, or am I doing something wrong? Gracias!
    • The BITS service, the Windows Update service, the Cryptographic service and  Application Identity service start with Windows and they came with old versions of Windows.
      
      Try to start the computer from safe mode and run this tool.

      ¡Qué tengas un feliz día!
      
    • I'll power up my Vista machine over the weekend and give it a try in Safe mode, but once again, I never did find an Application Id/appidsvc in its directory of services. Gracias.
    • I came up in Safe Mode, ran the script, and got the same result (Failed 1060 when trying to stop the Application Identity service.) There does not appear to be an Application Id service on my Vista. Gracias.
    • Hi bilvihur,
      
      I deleted the closure of the tool with the "AppIDSvc" for Windows Vista. Try again. Hopefully be resolved soon.
    • Thanks for getting back to me, Manuel, but in the interim I found a procedure which uses WSUS Offline Update to download ALL the appropriate Vista patches on my WIN 7 machine, copy them to a USB drive, and then install them on the Vista machine. It was time consuming, but now the Vista Windows Update works! Appreciate your help.

    • This is a virus. Don't dowmload it.

    • Hi WilliamDellison,
      
      
      This is a false positive. Some antivirus scanners automatically consider the file is secure if it is signed with a valid digital signature or digital certificate.
      
      The "Launcher.exe" file don't has a digital signature or the publisher is untrusted. This file is bluided in bat2exe converter and this tool don't signed the executable file or the digital signature is untrusted.
  • Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) false positive?
    2 Posts | Last post July 26, 2016
    • Please note that MSE client version 4.9.218.0 hits on 'Launcher (Demo).exe' as a Win32/Varpes.M!cl variant.
      
    • The code of "Launcher.exe" is:
      
      echo off
      cls
      call "%~dp0ResetWUEng.cmd"
      goto :eof
      
      And Build EXE in bat2exe converter.
      
      Yes, is a false positive.
      
      Thanks!

  • Will this script run on Windows 7 Ultimate X64
    2 Posts | Last post July 19, 2016
    • I am using WIN 7 PRO X64. Will this script run on WIN 7 PRO X64?
      I noticed a post "nice scrip, thanks for sharing, have you one x64 package?" I did see an answer " The Launcher is a demo version. It has been update for x64 bits. Please, try again."
      
      Does that mean the script I down today (July 16 2016) will run on WIN 7 PRO X64?
    • Oh right! this tool is updated for architecture of 32 and 64 bits.
      If the "Launcher.exe" fails, use the "ResetWUEng.cmd" as administrator.
  • nice scrip, thanks for sharing, have you one x64 package?
    2 Posts | Last post July 17, 2016
    • Dism.exe commands return erro:11 ! asking for x64 version.

    • The Launcher is a demo version. It has been update for x64 bits. Please, try again.
  • Thanks! It fixed my problem.
