Is anyone still using WSUS Offline as a postinstall task?

John Verbosky did a great write up a while back about using WSUS Offline as a postinstall task. I followed the guide, and it would work, but not completely. WSUS Offline would run, but the task engine seemed to reboot it before it finished. I thought there might be another way to make this work, so I tried several things. I ran the AutoIt executable I created for WSUS Offline as a runonce task right after imaging. This would never continue updates after a reboot. Ideally, I would do it as a postinstall task so that when the machine was finished imaging it would be ready for deployment. Anyone having success with this? I see posts on ITninja about WSUS Offline, but they seem to all be pretty old. I don't want to continue down this path if everyone else found a better way.
