Autopatcher how to?

I was wondering if it's possible to get hotfixes for third party apps and roll them up into AutoPatcher or some other patching program that allows me to create a CD or folder of them similiar to AutoPatcher?

The problem is we get hit hard by IA security audits and end up having to go to each server to install a bunch of patches for some of these third party programs. We are not doing this via SMS at the moment.

Can someone help me out here? I have all 100+ third party patches that I'm waiting to somehow roll up into an autopatching style one click solution.

Thanks a bunch

Did you try to install them via Group Policy Editor?
In the "Computer Configuration" thare's a nice option called "Software installation" that allows you to distribute any file that has been converted to the Windows Installer format first. Taht goes for the thirs party patches too.

I need to do this on a CD or folder that I can simply transfer and run like Autopatcher.  We don't use GPO to push out updates for third party apps on Domain Controllers or Servers.

I have the addon pack but was hoping I could slipstream my own into Autopatcher.

Thanks
