Update WSUS to show Windows 8 Computers as Windows 8 not Windows XP

If you have a server running Windows Server Update Services 3.0 SP2 (SBS 2003 / SBS 2008 / SBS 2011 etc) and you also have some Windows 8 clients that you have joined to the domain, they will probably show up in WSUS as Windows XP Clients not Windows 8!

To resolve this, please install the following patch from Microsoft:

Once installed, you should see the Windows 8 clients reported as Windows 8.
