The client hangs when "Reading Windows Update Configuration"
When you scan a Windows machine you find that the client hangs when "Reading Windows Update Configuration".
This problem can be caused by a COM deadlock between WMI and other COM controls.
To replicate the issue outside of the XIA Configuration Client the following can be executed in PowerShell with elevated administrator privilege.
Write-Host "Getting WMI"
Get-WmiObject Win32_OperatingSystem -computer "computername"
Write-Host "Getting Windows Update"
$ObjType = [type]::GetTypeFromProgID("Microsoft.Update.ServiceManager","computername", $True)
$ObjWUA = [Activator]::CreateInstance($ObjType)
- Confirm the issue is not related to the XIA Configuration Client by executing the test PowerShell script listed above.
- Ensure there are no firewall or networking issues preventing the system from working correctly.
