Hello people,

I need to install an Office KB (New Orthographic Agreement) on all computers in your organization.

Someone help me build the install script?
1) Validate that the KB has been installed.
2) Installation of KB with administrator permissions.

I'll save the senior members on this forum some time and post what they normally would:

Ok, my fault. I apologize.
Do not put all the information already collected.

Work already done:
Step 1 - Converting exe file to msp.
Step 2 - I created a small scirpt to identify whether the registry key already exists on the machine is made ​​if there is the installation process.
(not sure if the method is more accurate)


reg query HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Patches\FB1ACD618B4BD4E569AFBE52534AA394
if %errorlevel%==1 (goto Patches) else (goto End)

REM If 1 returned, the patch is not installed. Install the patch here.
"%windir%\system32\msiexec.exe" /p \\srv-001-011\software\Acordo_Ortografico_office2007\proof-pt-pt.msp /qn

REM If 0 or other was returned, the patch is already installed. Do nothing.


Missing - here is what I ask for help
Step 3 - Change the script so that the installation is done with administrator privileges.

Step 4 - Cofigure KB GPO to deploy (this task is simple for me)

Thank you.

If you're using GP, I'd create an AIP with the original product, patch the AIP then deploy as a new GP object with a new group as its scope so that you can pilot-test it first to a restricted audience.

If you're daft enough to want to walk the domain patching individual PCs, you'd probably want to use PSExec in a loop, looping through a list of machines. That, though, is a route for serious masochists only.
