IUpdateException interface (wuapi.h)

Represents info about the aspects of search results returned in the ISearchResult object that were incomplete. For more info, see Remarks.


The IUpdateException interface inherits from the IDispatch interface.


The IUpdateException interface has these methods.


Gets the context of search results.

Gets the Windows-based HRESULT code for the search results.

Gets a message that describes the search results.


The IUpdateException object is returned as part of the ISearchResult::Warnings property when a search succeeds but can't return complete results. For example, Windows Update might not have been able to retrieve all of the update metadata for a given update from the server. In this situation, the search results returned in the ISearchResult object are usable, but they aren't necessarily complete. The properties of the IUpdateException objects that are returned by the ISearchResult::Warnings property contain info about the aspects of the search that were incomplete. This info is unlikely to be useful programmatically, but can sometimes be useful for debugging.
