I have several PC's that will not install an application due to a Windows Service Pack being installed.  Is there a way I can create a package in SMS that can be pushed out to remove those service packs in question, and re-install them once the application is installed?

Server pack?  or security update?  is preventing an install?  To remove a security pack, the stability of the system will be compromised.  It is recommended not to remove security packs...

However, if you have figure out a way to remove the security pack from a command line like ( update /remove /norestart), you can push this out through SMS .

I am trying to install Outlook Connector but since I have Outlook security updates installed I am unable to successfully install this application.  Where can I find documentation that will show me how to remove security packs using SMS?

The documentation has to come from the security pack itself : not from SMS.  In other words, you need to figure out how to remove the patch from a command line switch.  One this is known, you can use SMS by creating an SMS package that uses these switches.

For example, if the patch exe was outlooksecpatch.exe, you would type outlooksecpatch.exe /? from a command line...  you may see options on how to uninstall the patch using a command line switch.  Or you can look at the technet article related to the patch.  One this is figured out, you can program these switches in the SMS package.

All documentation I am finding is referring to Windows service packs.
