I believe both can be run from a batch file in silent or quiet mode, so that is how I would do it.

I hope this helps !

those are windows updates, arent they? you could push it from your update server (if you have one).
Also, if i am not mistaken, they are kind of self-extracting archives. install winrar and right-click on the .exe file, see if you have option "extract...". i bet you will. then extract files into the folder, you will have .msi files inside. msi can be pushed through GPO no problems.
