SCCM 2012 update drivers on already deployed OS

My team and i have set up Microsoft System Center 2012 for deploying Windows 7 to all of our Staff computers. We use driver packages wich we install per OS in a task sequence, where we basically in the tasksequence install the correct driver package for any available model.

My Question: Now and then a driver gets updated.
How do i deploy / install the updated driver to the computers that have already been installed with a task sequence?

To answer your first question, I'll direct you to for the outline of the steps involved.

You can download update catalog for our clients, then import the drivers you want to deploy, and deploy as an update.

Here is a link to some videos that can guide you along the way:
There are a couple of ways you can approach this.  You can do this with Software Deployment or with Software Update Management (SCUP). You can easily just deploy the package/program to a collection that has the old driver.

You could also use devcon.exe to update the drivers using software distribution.

You could set up an overnight advertisement using the silent install switch, advertised to computers with that driver need.

Here's a step by step to one approach:

How do i use Software Deployment or SCUP to update a driver that is imported into the driver database? I prefer not to create extra packages; And if i have to, how do i create a package or software update from a driver?

Indeed i use the method as described on deploymentresearch to deploy driver packages via task sequences. It does not however mention how to distribute updated drivers..

It seems quite an elaborate setup to create and maintain. I will discuss this with my team members. Thanks for the good work.
