On 2003 servers when I run MBSA I get a link on the results page to download each patch. Clicking that link would download the patch to the specific vulerability. The download would be an EXE. In Server 2008 I expected it to download an MSU package but instead they all download CAB files. For example when I click to download the hotfix for MS10-029 it downloads this file:
Usually I script the hotfix installs and run them together with /passive /norestart but I don't know how to apply a CAB file. I guess my question is what do I do with the CAB file?
