Windows 2000 Server - Active Directory  

30 workstations, all are XP... some are SP2, some are SP1

How do I install the latest critical update on all of those machines remotely ?

is there an exe file for that security patch on the web?

p.s. I also have Ghost Corporate Ed. 8.0

It sounds like you need to install Microsoft SUS.

It pretty straightforward to install and configure.  Once it is in place, you will have to go in periodically and approve updates from the server that will then be deployed to all your workstations.

I did read do that...

I downloaded the sus sp1

installation failed... it said M:/ is not valid path... i don't have an M: drive at all

Is there anyway to accomplish this through a logon script or a batch file?

You should be able to download individual updates here:

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/en/

If the update comes with an .msi file, then you should be able to deploy it via group policy.  This link show the basics for that.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314953

This will only work with an MSI file.  If you don't have that, then the only thing left is to put the executable on a network share and set it to run in the login script.

lets say the the name of exe file is     jpegpatch.exe and it is located in F:/microsoft/patches
what would be the login script of that.

if its not simple as i am thinking, please put the links to the websites that can help me make the login script with the above file name and network share.

Thanks,

As long as you've mapped the drive in the login script prior to running the exectutable it should work.

The alternative would be to run it as \\servername\sharename\microsoft\patches\jpegpatch.exe

may be i didn't ask the question right

i have the drive mapped in logon.bat file, so all users are connected to F drive upon logon
share is F:/microsoft/patches/jpegpatch.exe

WHAT WOULD BE THE SCRIPT FILE BE?

currently, my .bat file has two lines

net time \\myserver
net use f: \\myserver\data /persistent:yes

what do i add to get the exe file run upon logon.

Just this line:

\\servername\sharename\microsoft\patches\jpegpatch.exe

(Assuming you've setup that share of course)

so my bat file would look like this right? (below)

net time \\myserver
net use f: \\myserver\data /persistent:yes
F:\microsoft\patches\jpegpatch.exe

OR

net time \\myserver
net use f: \\myserver\data /persistent:yes
\\myserver\data\microsoft\patches\jpegpatch.exe
