Error when selecting WSUS or any software publishing package

Updated July 11, 2016


When you select the WSUS server in Patch Manager or any of the packages under Software Publishing Packages, you receive the following: 

Error: < Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration or one of its dependencies >




Patch Manager - Confirmed

Earlier versions - Not Confirmed


The cause is unknown as to why the Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration was missing.


Re-run the Patch Manager Configuration Wizard. The application will reinstall the missing assembly file for Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration, and you can open the WSUS console and Software Packages in Patch Manager.
