Hi Experts,
I have a couple .msu files I need to install on my Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, but it doesn't have the Windows Standalone Update Installer file (wusa.exe) on it.

Where can I download the wusa.exe file Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition?

I have scoured the next, but with no luck!

Have you checked for it in the %windir%\System32 folder?

Oops, yes 2008 and 2012 have wusa.exe
Otherwise you have to use the redistributables for W2K3 to install v4.5 of Windows Installer

Windows Installer 4.5 Download from msdn
