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.

There are some addons that you can add

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