RunUpdates.cmd - Apply all updates contain in all sub-directories

Traditionally, in order to integrate patches from Microsoft into a desktop build, the process would include downloading the updated executables (either from the WindowsUpdate Catalog or from the individual update Knowledge Base article or Security Bulletin) and creating a command shell script to run each update in turn with the correct switches for silent installation.

RunUpdates.cmd is a script that comes to us from Michael Murgolo, a Senior Consultant with Microsoft Consulting Services specializing in desktop deployment. RunUpdates.cmd provides an automated framework for integrating hotfixes and updates into an enterprise desktop image.

This is an extract from the Utility Spotlight column of the December 2005 issue of Technet Magazine.
