Microsoft Update (Install)

Use the Task Install Microsoft Update to install Microsoft Hotfixes and Service Packs on Agents.


  • The relevant MSI or MSU file must be available as a Resource.

It can be useful to base this Task on the results of the Task Query Installed Programs, which obtains an overview of all installed programs on Agents. For example, this allows you to install Microsoft Office 2003 Service Pack 1 on specific Agents, based on the results of the Query.

  • The Agent may need to reboot after installing the update. You can schedule this reboot by including the Task Shutdown Computer after the Task Install Microsoft Update.
  • Create a separate Task for each update that you want to install.
