    I download a exe software called wuinstall.
    It's to help with windows patching automation. The program works great if I manually launch it via command line. "cd c:\wuinstall.exe /install /reboot"
    It goes out to our WSUS and grabs the updates, installs and reboots.

    What I'm trying to do is run it via task scheduler but I'm unable to. The task runs but nothing really happens.

    My settings.

    General Tab -> User account "System"
    General Tab-> Configure for Windows Server 2012 R2

    Actions Tab -> Program/script: -> c:\wuinstall.exe
    Actions Tab -> add agruments -> /install /reboot

    I'm not any good with powershell or .bat files. This is pretty much my limitations. Would someone be able to help.

    Thank you
