Re: Windows Update on Ubuntu
I dont use wine, but the reason apps update themselves in Windows is because Windows update is running as a service, when you run apps in Wine you arent running windows, merely emulating windows for the purposes of the app, so i highly doubt apps get updated.
A long time ago MS implemented Windows Genuine Advantage which prevents non windows users from using Windows update as it detects if you are running a genuine windows platform or not.
I read an article ages ago about MS targeting wine users with this, I will post the link back if i can find it.
That being said i suspect windows update online may work at update.microsoft.com from within wine in IE
