I was running one of the basic "Update Services 3.0 API Samples and
Tools” programs to connect remotely to my WSUS 3.0 SP2 box.
I modified the GetUpdateServer() method invocation. And I added a
reference to UpdateServices.Administration.dll in the project.
Then, when I built and ran it, I got the dreaded the "system cannot
find the file specified” exception that I have seen discussed here and
I failed to find the file it was referring to using sysinternals'
However, installing the "Administration Console only" of "Windows
Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 Console" allowed the programs to run
So can anyone else confirm that the WSUS Admin Console is indeed a
requirement for running the Sample Apps against a remote WSUS server?
I had not seen that documented anywhere.
