How to install Windows 10 updates using XEOX


Here’s how to grab the latest Windows 10 update for your PC.

Windows updates are important because it is critical to install security updates to protect your systems from malicious attacks. In the long run, it is also important to install software updates, not only to access new features, but also to be on the safe side in terms of security loop holes being discovered in outdated programs. And it is in your own best interest to install all other updates, which may potentially cause your system to become vulnerable to attack.

The Windows 10 updates are a problem for many people since you either have to wait for Microsoft to give you the go on updating your system or are forced to update when you’re in the middle of a project.

However, if you want to take the matter into your own hands, this guide shows you how to force Windows to start downloading the Windows 10 update files without having to wait for Microsoft’s approval.

First, you need to sign up to XEOX and create an account. After you have done that, please take the following steps:


  • Go to Agent or Install Agent on the menu bar and install it. If you need help with the installation please read the instructions in Agent or read agent installation.

  • Click on Job Center and select Jobs. In the gray menu bar you can select a wizard which will help you with creating a job, or use create job directly.

  • Follow the steps of the wizard or create the job and save them.

  • The Job will run either immediatly or at the set time, depending on what you selected. The job will search for new updates and also install them on the selected device. Make sure you back everything up before you start installing it.
