Microsoft Windows Update can be done by command line tool. What you should do is very simple: wuauclt /detectnow /updatenow

Windows Update can also be run through legacy CMD. The only limitation running Windows Update through command prompt is that it won’t show any progress. Only results are shown. Let’s see how to run it:


STEP 1. Go to Run → cmd


STEP 2. Run the following command to check for new updates:

wuauclt /detectnow


STEP 3. Run the following command to install new updates

wuauclt /updatenow
