@echo off if exist "%~dp0dirlst.txt" del dirlst.ext if exist "%~dp0exerunr.cmd" del exerunr.cmd dir /od /b "%~dp0*.exe" > dirlst.ext echo @echo off > exerunr.cmd FOR /F "usebackq delims=" %%a in (dirlst.ext) do ( echo start "" /wait "%~dp0%%a" /QUIET /NORESTART >> exerunr.cmd ) echo exit. >> exerunr.cmd REM start "" /wait "%~dp0exerunr.cmd" del dirlst.ext REM del exerunr.cmd exit.then save it "somewhere" as "exerun.cmd". Now copy the file to each folder and run it. It will generate a file called "exerunr.cmd" - run that and wait. I'm not sure WHICH ones MIGHT fail (not knowing WHICH files you downloaded) but its should work for MOST of them.
Note - Regardless, run the SP3 FIRST by itself (no need for the "cmd" files).
edit - DOH!!! Alright, -X-, ya beat me! Mine just sorts them by date/time ascending.
edit2 - errr - never thought about "nobackup" before... either/or...
edit3 - WUD downloads Categories to separate folders...

1 - Security Updates (87) <-These WILL install with CMD AFTER SP3
2 - Non-Security Updates (15) <-These WILL install with CMD AFTER SP3
3 - Service Packs (1) <--Install First
4 - WMP 11 Updates (20) <-These WILL install with CMD AFTER you download WMP11 and install (not included)
5 - MS Security Products (2) <-These may NOT install with CMD
6 - Optional Updates (7) <-These may NOT install with CMD
I haven't downloaded the whole set BUT can tell you that SOME of them MIGHT install with a different set of parameters.
You can open the "UL" file with Notepad to determine which went into which group.
Also note that IE8 will require additional Updates (AFAIK).
Go to -X- website for more info.
edit - noticed at least two IE8 Updates in the List#1 - install IE8 FIRST (downloaded in Optional).

Mistaken about WMP11 (it's in the download)
Mistaken about the IE8-WindowsXP-KBxxx (seems to all be there)
So... the first one MAY not work that way.
SOME WindowsXP-KBxxx may not work that way (probably OK though)
1 - Run the Script against what you've collected
2 - Install IE8
3 - Collect the IE8-WindowsXP-KBxxx and run the script against them
4 - Install Mediaplayer11
5 - Collect the windowsmedia11-kbxxx and run the script against them
6 - Install all others accordingly/as you desire (manually?) (DotNet, etc)
7 - Check via Windows/Microsoft Update to see what got "missed"
ONE of the "Security" ones (other than the one I gave above) is Windows Antivirus - you may/maynot want that.
OTHER Optional (#6) are whatever you want.
