You might see that your WSUS server will crash after KB3159706 is installed.

The event log will report event ID 507 Update Services failed its initialization and stopped.


In the support article you will se that manual intervention is required, but since the update is pushed from Windows Update and WSUS itself, you might not be aware of the change.

Manual steps required to complete the installation of this update

Open an elevated Command Prompt window, and then run the following command (case sensitive, assume "C" as the system volume):

"C:\Program Files\Update Services\Tools\wsusutil.exe" postinstall /servicing

Select HTTP Activation under .NET Framework 4.5 Features in the Server Manager Add Roles and Features wizard (if not already installed).


Restart the WSUS service.


If SSL is enabled on the WSUS server you need to do a few more changes as explained in the support article KB3159706

And as always remember proper maintenance on the server:

Update check logic

In previous releases, the check for an updated version of the Cmdlet Library was performed on cmdlet execution if a certain time limit had passed. This check now occurs only when a new CMDrive instance is created. This change was made to reduce the number of warnings that may be written when there is an update available. For more information on this feature and how to configure it, please see the documentation at
