How can I update Update .net 6.0 with Microsoft Update Service

Popp, Jochen (DI FA TI AIT) 0 Reputation points

On a windows server 2016 we have update an application. Now we have .net 6.0.12 components.

What can I do, that these components automatically update with windows update service.

I read this: Add [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft.NET\6.0] “AllowAUOnServerOS” dword:00000001

But I have not this path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft.NET\6.0

Must I add the completely (key with path)?

Not only the key AllowAUOnServerOS?

    Hi @Popp, Jochen (DI FA TI AIT)

    The there is a separate sub key under "Microsoft" called “.NET”, instead of "Microsoft.NET". Check this screenshot:


    You can add the .NET, 6.0 key and the AllowAUOnServerOS key by yourself. Or create a .reg file with the following command:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NET\6.0] "AllowAUOnServerOS"=dword:00000001

    Refer to this article: .NET Automatic Updates for Server Operating Systems.

    I set the key, but even after the microsoft patch day, .net was not updated.
