Install Missing Software Updates

The Install Missing Software Updates tool displays required or available software updates that are not currently installed on a device, allowing a user to select and install them on a remote device. This tool can be run on single devices, multi-selected devices, or with a similar tool designed to be run on a device collection.

NOTE: This tool will not deploy updates. It will install updates that have already been deployed.

To run this tool:

1. In your Configuration Manager console, right-click on a device.

2. Click Right Click Tools > Client Tools > Remote Software Center.

NOTE: In v4.x, this tool is found under Right Click Tools > Client Tools > Install Missing Software Updates and redirects to Remote Software Center.

3. On the Software Updates tab, select the desired updates and click Install
