anyone - thinks of this - input - suggestions - thank you
I have done very little with 8.1 and Marimba so far will do some research on update.service.handler=true property. So far have not had to use it.
Thank you Chris.
*update.service.handler=true *works great on win7x systems
win8x seems to ignore it.

What did you find happening to your Win7 machines during patches to require this setting?
All Windows 7 SP1 systems we use update.service.handler=true prop which allows us to disable Windows Update Service in (services) then with Patch Service Runs - Patch Service Channel has to power to Enable Windows Update Service if a MSU patch requires the service to be running - then it again disables the Windows Update Service once BBCA Patching is completed. Win8x the prop does nothing. Could be our PS version.
Whats the version of Tuner / PS are you using Craig? I am not sure if Windows 8.0 and 8.1 are the versions of Windows you are referring to or Windows 8.0 and BBCA 8.1?? (please forgive my misinterpretation ). Eitherways Windows 8 is not fully supported till 8202 (I guess)
Windows OS are: Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1 Professional which the Prop update.service.handler=true does not take affect.
On Windows 7 Pro SP1 the Prop update.service.handler=true allows the correct action.
We are how ever deploying OS Win8.1 Pro to our Specialty Systems " Intel® NUC devices " which need 8.1 Microsoft Patches. PS - Win8.X patching is working fine, we just have to leave the Windows Update Service Enabled, but disable the Windows Updated in Control Panel with our Win8_Baseline_Settings_GPO
Just looking for confirmation that update.service.handler=true should or should not work on OS Win8.1 systems, like it does in Win7 OS.
BBCA Endpoint Channels are:
Scanner Service 8.1.01.009d Policy Service 8.1.01.008b Patch Service 8.1.01.009 Channel Manager 8.2.02.002
Infrastructure Service 8.1.01.009e
Core Infra Components:
Infrastructure Status Monitor 8.1.01.008
Schema Manager 8.1.01a
Infrastructure Administration 8.1.01
Patch Manager 8.1.01.009
Report Center 8.1.01
Software License Compliance 8.1.01
Policy Manager 8.1.01
Common Management Services 8.1.01.002
We are in a change Freeze as we have just upgraded 25,000 systems to Windows 7 from WinXP with only 500+ more WinXP system to upgrade by March 31. then we are free to Upgrade.
Thank you for your time in this reply Gregory / Chris.
Yep... I would test with 8202 or higher Patch service and Tuner.. Because I pretty sure that we don't fully support Windows 8 in 8101 (Not sure which Guide has the disclaimer). If you can reproduce the issue in 8202 or higher you can raise a defect with support..
Oh!! looks like you needn't test this.. there is a fix for it in 8201.003 and 8202 Patch Service.. Defect SW00445528 it was caught by our QA team during their internal testing
