SMS 2003- How to Deploy MS Office Patches


I am trying to deploy ms office patches via sms 2003 sp2 dsuw.  Everything is the same as security patches until I get to the part where I am to input the syntax.  It is not clear what needs to be put here.

I tried a /Q and the advert ran successfully on all machines but I didnt see any of the patches listed when I ran an srvinfo against these machines.

I guess there is a file called ohotfix.exe involved in deploying office updates?  I don't know exactly where it goes though.

Can someone explain exactly what I need to do to successfully deploy office patches or give me a link?

I am relatively new to sms.

Thank You

I've not read right through it though.

It seems like this is a mute point once the sp2 ITMU is installed.
