AutoSelectionMode enumeration (wuapi.h)

Defines the types of logic that is used to determine whether a particular update will be automatically selected when the user views available updates in the Windows Update user interface.

typedef enum tagAutoSelectionMode {
  asLetWindowsUpdateDecide,
  asAutoSelectIfDownloaded,
  asNeverAutoSelect,
  asAlwaysAutoSelect
} AutoSelectionMode;

asAutoSelectIfDownloaded
The update will be automatically selected only if it has been completely downloaded.
asNeverAutoSelect
