I have to lockdown a laptop without connecting to the internet.  I have 100+ updates/patches/KB fixes and .reg (registry file .exe) that need run against the client.  How can I automate this without connecting to the internet?  I suggest a client running WSUS and connecting the computers directly, then updating with WSUS?

Is it possible to run updates via a script?  One after another?

Use WSUS Offline Updater....It allows you to download all updates and then burn them to a cd/dvd then the cd is fully automated to install all the necessary updates.

You can configure it to download from either microsoft or from your WSUS server.

That's the whole point of WSUSoffline.....You download install the app(on another PC) it then downloads all the updates you select, then you burn it to cd/dvd and take it to the machine and run it.

It's a very cool, very easy app to run

WSUS offline was used.  however, I found out later that it may violate security policy to use a third party updater.  The preferred choice is Microsoft offline updater.  Having said that, I have tried it and it is not the best documented procedure.

I accept this solution for now.
