I have a job that triggers Microsoft Windows update using powershell module pswindowsupdate. To install module it uses Nuget. In our environment we have to specify wpad file to reach internet. Step one removes the check mark next to automatically detect setting. The second step sets the wpad file using command. reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v AutoConfigURL /t REG_SZ /d "http://<wpad file>.dat" /f. When it comes time to download the module it fails with following error:
WARNING: Unable to download from URI 'https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=627338&clcid=0x409' to ''.
WARNING: Unable to download the list of available providers. Check your internet connection.
When I log into workstation and run the command in powershell, it works. It just doesn't work from PDQ Deploy. Is there a way to specify wpad file for deploy user?
