Strictly no.. as it uses IE for for a lot of the interaction.

you could try this http://www.wuinstall.com/ which does a lot of the stuff via CLI

the utility i posted (  http://www.wuinstall.com/ ) can be used as part of a login or logoff screen to do the updates silently and without user interruption.

Or you can use the windows software update service (WSUS) which does it in the background, but not from the command line.

A useful way to use the wuinstall along with psexec(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx) would be like so:


psexec \\* -c -f -s -d \\server\share\wuinstall.exe /install <<<"*" is a wildcard for whole domain

psexec @c:\computers.txt -c -f -s -d \\server\share\wuinstall.exe /install<<<would be a way to run on all non-servers(Computers.txt would have this list one per line)
