Q

Can we launch updates from a CD for remote computers not on our network?

Is there a way to launch the updates from a CD in order to update remote computers not attached to our network?
Yes, this can be done. There are a couple utilities you'll want to be aware of that will allow you to do this. First, there is the Hotfix.exe utility. The Hotfix.exe utility runs the Hotfixes for you and gives you command-line options for installing them. You can find out more about it here: http://www.myitforum.com/articles/20/view.asp?id=5898

Then, there is the QChain.exe utility, which allows you to string multiple Hotfixes together for installation. Here's more information on QChain.exe: http://www.myitforum.com/articles/1/view.asp?id=166
