Dear Team,

I am experiencing problem in deleting the update vendor group created automatically by software/update.

Have you tried deleting the "product"-category first?

In this case, you have to delete "Adobe Reader XI" first and then you will be able to delete "Adobe Systems Incorporated".

Note that this feature, has prerequisites. And it works only in 99% of cases.

Delete button is greyed out, update is deleted but the Adobe Systems Incorporated is not automatically getting deleted.

What does "clean updateservicespackages folder" do?

This is another feature of WPP. It browses the "E:\WSUS\UpdateServicesPackages" folder and try to find unused folders.
No correlation with "Delete Product".

Do you met all prerequistes to use this function ?
  • Run WPP locally on the Wsus server.
  • Product folder must be empty.
  • Product mustn't have been publish by Microsoft.
  • Product can't be the "Locally Published Packages" folder
  • Option to make newly published update visible in Wsus Console, must be different from "Never".

Run WPP locally on the Wsus server. - Yes WPP is running on WSUS server
Product folder must be empty. - product folder is deleting by itself after click on delete button
Product mustn't have been publish by Microsoft. - product is adobe reader 11
Product can't be the "Locally Published Packages" folder - product name is adobe systems
Option to make newly published update visible in Wsus Console, must be different from "Never".  - by default set to NEVER changed to let me choose and did the magic
issue is solved

thanks for support
