Or, just use this code

$winService = "wuauserv"

$resetVal = Get-ItemPropertyValue -Name $regVal -Path $regPath

Set-ItemProperty -Path $regPath -Name $regVal -Value $regData -Force | Out-Null
Restart-Service -InputObject $winService -Force

Get-WindowsCapability -Online | ? Name -like 'RSAT*'| where {$_.State -eq 'NotPresent'} | foreach {Add-WindowsCapability -Online -Name $_.Name}

Set-ItemProperty -Path $regPath -Name $regVal -Value $resetVal -Force | Out-Null
