Re-enabling Windows Updates before uninstalling

In the case you have used WAPT to manage Windows Updates, you might want to re-enable Windows Updates default behavior before uninstalling the WAPT agent.

To do so, here is an example package to push before uninstalling the WAPT agent:

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
from setuphelpers import *

uninstallkey = []

def install():
    print('Disable WAPT WUA')
    inifile_writestring(WAPT.config_filename,'waptwua','enabled','false')

    print('DisableWindowsUpdateAccess registry to 0')
    registry_set(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,r'Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate','DisableWindowsUpdateAccess',0,REG_DWORD)

    print('AUOptions registry to 0')
    registry_set(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,r'SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update','AUOptions',0,REG_DWORD)

    print('Enable wuauserv')
    run_notfatal('sc config wuauserv start= auto')
    run_notfatal('net start wuauserv')
