Hi,

I have just downloaded this application and tired to connect it to my 2012 Server which has the WSUS feature installed and configured. However, I get the message contained in the subject field.

If I look at the "About" tab is shows Server Version: 6.3.9600.16384 and Console Version: 3.2.7600.226.

Is there anything I can do to circumvent this issue?

Thanks,

Lee

Hi, are you using WPP on the Wsus server or from an administrative computer ?

From an administrative computer, which also has RSAT 7.1 tools installed.

Are you able to manage your Wsus 2012 with RSAT from this computer ?
I have installed RSAT 7.1 on a Windows 7 SP1 computer, and I can't find wsus console.

David, you have to start the WSUS-Setup and choose after starting setup the WSUS-Console. In RSAT-Tools there isn't a WSUS-Console.

I confirm, RSAT for Windows 7 cannot manage Wsus 6.2 or Wsus 6.3. You can't install the Wsus Console from the Wsus-Setup because, in this case, you will end up with a console version of 3.2....
There is two ways to use WPP with Wsus 6.2 or 6.3.
  • Run WPP on a Windows 8 or 8.1 with RSAT installed.
  • Run WPP directly on the Wsus server.

Hi David,

I'll try running directly from the WSUS server, as we don't have Win8 or 8.1 deployed here. I shall confirm shortly.

Hi David,

It works perfectly directly on the WSUS Server. - I'm starting to tinker with it now :-)

Thanks for time, effort & help.
