Install Multiple MS Office Security Updates in a batch file

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have been struggling to get an equivalnet to QCHAIN that worked great in Windows XP. Basically, to install multiple Windows updates using a batch file, Microsoft provides a utility called: wusa.exe to install .msu files in a sequence that works similar to QCHAIN. Down side to this is you can not use it to install anything with .exe file extensions. It is purely for .msu files. I have got MS Office XP installed on the Windows 7 clients and need to update the master build PC with the latest MS Office Patches using a batch file, but cannot find anything that can chain these patches to install in a sequence. Has anyone come across this situation and have managed to get a working solution? Please help. Thanks

The reason qchain existed was to overcome the rename on reboot issue where multiple hotfixes could contain updates to the same file - qchain was used to make sure that only the latest file for each updated binary was placed during the reboot. Office does not have that problem, so I fail to see why you can't simply get the list of updates and apply them in sequence?

Hi cluberti,

That true, but ran all patches in a line... The issue am having is to install all patches in one batch file silently. i.e each patch should finish installing before executing the next. Tried Start /Wait and still no joy

E.g.

ECHO.

ECHO Security Update for PowerPoint 2002 (KB905758)

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Hotfix or Update. Please wait...

"\\sharename\x86\1_KB905758.exe" /Q

ECHO.

ECHO Security Update for Office XP (KB911701)

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Hotfix or Update. Please wait...

"\\sharename\x86\2_KB911701.exe" /Q

ECHO.

ECHO Security Update for Office XP (KB920816)

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Hotfix or Update. Please wait...

"\\sharename\x86\3_KB920816.exe" /Q

ECHO.

ECHO Security Update for Access 2002 (KB955440)

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Hotfix or Update. Please wait...

"\\sharename\x86\4_KB955440.exe" /Q

ECHO.

ECHO Security Update for Office XP (KB921596)

ECHO.

ECHO Installing Hotfix or Update. Please wait...

"\\sharename\x86\5_KB921596.exe" /Q

The above will try install all at the same time
