    Add optional feature to install SSH through command line

    I am trying to enable SSH through but when I go to add an optional feature I see no options in the list (Screenshot attached). I have version 1709 so should be on the correct version? Hopefully this isn't a silly mistake but would appreciate any help

    Please type regedit.exe into Start Menu to open registry editor.

    Navigate to:


    Ifthere's a value called UseWUServer, double click it to set data value to 0 or delete the UseWUServer, value and restart your computer.

    Hopefully this will resolve your issue.

    Hi FreeBooter, I do not have a entry for UseWUServer however the WSUS server is configured in WUServer. Is that restricting the installation of optional features?

    You have to check AU registry key for UseWUServer value.

    You don't have to worry about WUServer if you can update your computer from Settings ---> Update and Security --> Windows Update.

    Open the Command Prompt as a administrator.

    You would use DISM to fix Windows component store corruptions.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Execute below command to make sure corrupted system files repaired.

    Sfc  /Scannow

    Check to see issue has been resolved.
