Is the Automatic Updates feature meant to download and install
everything marked as High Priority on WindowsUpdate?

I went to WindowsUpdate and found 2 high priority updates, namely .Net
Framework 1.1 service pack 1 and the GDI+ Detection Tool, but nothing
about these 2 updates from Automatic Updates, not even a notification in
System Tray. None of my SP2 machines are alerting or downloading.

Is this normal? Thanks.

Hey, if you get an answer, share it with the rest of the group.

You aren't alone here and none of the MVPs seem to have an
authoritative answer about why these specific "high priority updates"
aren't being automatically installed.
