  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers for Windows 4.0
  • Virtuozzo for Windows 3.5.1 SP1


Microsoft Windows server was installed and ran sometime before Virtuozzo installation. During this time Microsoft updates were downloaded with Automatic Updates service, but were not installed yet.

Now Virtuozzo is installed. However Automatic Updates keeps showing early downloaded MS updates when clicking on yellow shield in the system tray. Some of these updates are not compatible with Virtuozzo.


The reason of this is that these updates were downloaded and kept in Windows repository. Even after Virtuozzo installation WSUS registry settings are changed, those updates are pending for installation as they are already placed locally.


Please stop Automatic Updates and BITS services. Then remove all files and subfolders from C:\ system32\Softwaredistribution folder, start Automatic Updates and BITS services and force MS updates installation again.
