When you start Windows Update on your Windows 2008 R2 (or Windows 2008, or Windows 7) machine, you can see in the middle of the window it says “You receive updates: For Windows Only“.
Maybe it’s OK for somebody, but….not for me :).
If you have MS SQL Server or Exchange Server (or any other Microsoft product) installed on this machine, you probably would like to see (I definitely want to see :)) “Windows Update” checks for updates for all products, not JUST for Windows.
So, the easy way to fix this “issue” and get a message: “You receive updates: For Windows and other products from Microsoft Update” is to go to http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-US and accept agreements needed to get Microsoft Update.
