Window Update Status (PowerShell) sensor not created by template



I've created a sensor for Windows server which includes 10 sensors. When I create a device from this template, 9 sensors are created for this device. The only sensor missing is the "Windows Update Status (PowerShell) sensor". The sensor does not appear in the PRTG manual as a type of sensor not being included in templates. In fact, the sensor seems to be included in the template itself as it appears in the template definition .odt file. It just won't show up in devices created from the template.

If the device does not meet the requirements for the sensor to run, it will not be created.

can you manually add the sensor? does that work?
