ITNinja Question

Is it possible to include 1 security patch within IEAK9 when creating a package?

07/29/2014 2065 views

OK, here is the deal. I am creating a custom package for IE9 with IEAK9 to distribute to my co-workers (IT SUpport).

after installing the package we run the windows update tool and there is one security update for IE9. well my boss wants that to be included somehow in the package where when he runs the udate utility it will show NO updates for IE9??

the patch is a .msu file and i have extracted it and tried just to include the .cab files in the creation of the package (IEAK9) but this does not take. nothing goes wrong but when the update utility is ran that security package is still there??/??

I can't recall if the IEAK will let you patch up the installation as one of its phases, but in any case you could run a Custom Component to install your patch: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-US/library/gg598595.aspx

So the command line for your .msu file in the custom components would be:

wusa.exe <mypatch.msu> /quiet

There is a /norestart switch you could use, but it may not be required - check the KB article number for the patch to determine if there is a restart required and add accordingly.

Hope that helps,
