    Hi Kyle,
    You have a few options.

    One of them would be to do as you suggest and script a download using either pure powershell or something like Aria2.

    It is probably more sane however to use Windows update itself to do the build upgrade.

    $Updates = Start-WUScan -SearchCriteria "IsInstalled=0 AND IsHidden=0 AND IsAssigned=1" Write-Host "Updates found: " $Updates.Count Install-WUUpdates -Updates $Updates

    You could also use the PSWindowsUpdate module.

    Hi Ben,
    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I dont believe your 2nd suggestion would work in my enviroment because all of our laptops are encrypted using Symantec PGP so steps need to be run before the install kicks off to bypass the encryption and import the encryption drivers. That's why I've been using PDQ Deploy to push out feature updates. I've never heard of Aria2 though so I might give that a shot. I've tried using wget to download the files I have from Google Drive but the results are very inconsistent. The link I tell it to download from will work fine for one person and then the rest it will not connect to Google Drive to download. If Aria2 does a better job to download files, that'll help me out alot.

    We currently dont have feature updates enabled on our WSUS server because if we did and it tried to install on a computer that's encrypted, the feature update would fail everytime.
