Does anyone know how to access/open what used to be a Control Panel (CPL) object “Windows Update” - in Windows 10… in code?

Although this is utilised in an installer for an Access database project which is written in VB.NET - after the Access 2016 runtime is installed, I have found that programmatically downloading the required updates (about 30) takes an absolute age so I would like the users to be able to observer whats happening as in Windows 10.

I can easily do this in Windows 7 but not 10. Is this even possible?

Developed on a Windows 7 machine for installation in 7 and 10.

Many thanks.

No problem. I was surprised it took me me quite a few tries as well to find the one that worked.

Cheers,
