An Emby api key and url is now required. The api key can be created in, advanced menu, security.  Then run:

.\EmbyServiceUpdater.ps1 -ApiKey "YOUR_API_KEY" -ServerUrl "http://YOUR_SERVER_URL:PORT" -InstallTask

Awesome that did the trick thanks. Quick question though how does this work. Will it automatically stop the server and install the update then restart the server once an update is available? Can I choose certain times for it to do this?

I've been using this script for years, and with the exception of a few necessary upgrades to the script, it ahs worked flawlessly so I hardly ever had to upgrade my Emby server manually.

However a while ago I saw both my Emby servers announcing that Emby v 4.7.* was available. Checked and confirmed that the EmbyServerUpdater script no longer does it's job, it will just run and then bring the old server version back up. Noticed this on both my Emby servers.

I updated the script from Github just in case there were changes, but that made no difference.

I've not made any changes to my Emby servers, so I'm not sure why this is no longer working. Not sure how to debug this either.

Did something change in the latest Emby server update that prevents the script from working?

I just ran it successfully to upgrade to 4.7.2.0. First time using this script as well, thanks to the OP!

I encountered an error the first time I tried to run it, as the script requires that it run as "Administrator" but I had a service account setup to run Emby Server on my machine for some more granular security control. I changed the owner of the Emby Server directories to be the Administrators usergroup, while ensuring that my service account still had full control. This allowed the script to proceed (before the owner was the service user itself, and Administrators had Full Control but that wasn't enough, needed to be the owner of the directories).
