Script for installing Microsoft security updates

11 Comments1 Solution1005 ViewsLast Modified:
      I would like to know if there is a way to install a list of Microsoft security patches via VB-Script or Batch files, etc.  Let's assume that I have downloaded 4 security patches from MS (Ex: KB12345, KB56789....etc) and burned them onto a CD and I run a script that is present on the CD that will go ahead and install the specified KB patches to the target computer (Including reboot if necessary after installing certain patches, and after reboot pickup installing the patches where it left of).  

I need to update 50 or so computers and it will be tedious to update each and every one of them manually, therefore i'm looking for a way to automate installing the updates.  

These are for Windows XP machines...

Thanks and any input/help is greatly appreciated!
