    Nope, i have deployed SP3 via MSI took a while but worked fine
    It could be just an intermittent connection problem causing it to fail I suppose. Both .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and XP SP3 are huge files to deploy to say the least!

    The Logistix Plugins Plus Pack contains the following all in one convenient package:

    Adobe Flash 9.0.124.0
    Adobe Shockwave 11.0.0.465
    Adobe Reader 9
    Java 6 Update 7
    QuickTime Alternative 2.70
    Real Alternative 1.84

    @ICT_GUY - I had a look at including PowerToys, but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any easy way of installing it silently. It doesn't use the normal Microsoft switches.

    Cool!, shame about the power toys though, but still woohoo!

    Glad you approve. They seem to be a hit so I will endeavour to make new packages or update existing ones whenever necessary.

    Probably the next package will be a standalone Post XP SP3 package for October, so it'll just include Post XP SP3 Hotfixes, IE7, MP11 and nothing more.

  5. Thanks to Michael from:

    I'm going to sound like a complete numpty now but how would i deploy these silently and from a Server share. Would it be a script that points to them?

    I rarely install software remotely unless it is installed via an MSI through GPO. How would i check to see if they have been installed and so skip it for recurring logins?

    I found some pre-packaged MSI's for quicktime and realtime alternatives for download and used those. Can't we do similar for other free software through edugeek?

    All the members that go through the process of creating these deployable MSI's, we could gather them all into one place for all MSI's usable in Schools.

    Thanks and sorry for being so dumb.

    In a domain environment I would highly recommend WSUS 3.0. Not only will it deploy updates silently (with minimal user intervention), it gives you as the domain admin a console which displays all updates your machines have installed. It also allows you to deploy Office updates too.

    The Logistix Post XP SP3 Update Pack is suitable for standalone updating or for updating machines which are to be imaged. The updates are then readily and conveniently installed on all machines.

    However if you wanted to use the pack to deploy the updates, firstly extract the Logistix Post XP SP3 Update Pack but click on the X (at the top right) instead of clicking on Finish. Open up the batch file and edit the set PATHTOFIXES= using a UNC path

    Code:
    set PATHTOFIXES=\\SERVERNAME\SHARENAME
    Create a shortcut to the batch file and run the file from a workstation. Please note you need access rights to the share and local administrator rights to install hotfixes.

    If you have lots of machines to update, I would definitely go down the WSUS route. Even for 10 machines at a time, it would generate a lot of network traffic.
