Hello, I have the WSUS role added to a Server 2012 box.

I'd like to use WPP on a workstation with the WSUS Admin console installed on it but i'm getting a version mismatch error. Is there a way to still use it or do I have to install WPP on the server?

Hello,
What is the Wsus Server version and Console ?
Do you have installed RSAT on your computer ?

The console on the Windows 7 machine is 3.1.7600.226
The Server 2012 version is 6.2.9200.16384

I don't have RSAT installed on the Win7 client, just the WSUS console

The console installed on your Windows 7 computer, can only manage Wsus 3.2.
It is required that you install RSAT for Windows 7 to manage Wsus 6.2.
WPP will not work until you can connect to your wsus from this computer.

Can RSAT for Windows 7 manage Windows Server 2012 WSUS? I doubt it, but havent't tried.

I never try this settings. My test environnement is Windows 8 + Windows Server 2012.
The fact is that WPP can only works on a computer that is able to manage the WSUS which you want to connect to.
