Install Windows KB Updates without re-solidification


In our system, McAfee Integrity Control is enabled. I am installing Windows KB update on top of that. These are the steps am following.

sadmin updaters add "KB Installer"

finetune.bat ADD u-WindowsUpdate

Restart the system

sadmin begin-update

Install the KB updates

Restart the system

sadmin solidify

sadmin end-update

Restart the system

But, the solidification of system takes around 2.5hrs. This is not desirable for us. Is there any way to to it with re-solidification. Or with the latest McAfee Integrity Control, is it possible to auto install KB Updates without the above steps? please help me in this. Thanks much.

Re: Install Windows KB Updates without re-solidification


Thank you for your post. Resolidification is bound to take longer time and unfortunately, it is an extremely crucial step, especially with larger Windows updates. While adding multiple updaters with trial and error may successfully get your windows updated, post reboot, we may face anomalies with the working of machine and resolidification is the step that would save us from any issues that may come.


Sincerely hope this helps!
