Patch download location

12/07/2018 1128 views

Our patches are downloading to users temp folder, is there a way to customize the location of where patches download? We would like patches to be pushed to a dedicated folder.

Patches are downloaded from the Kbox to C:\ProgramData\Quest\Kace\Patches  folder.

If a patch requires TEMP folder, the OS (WUSA.exe), will use that C:\Windows\Temp folder to install them.

That was a request a year ago, before KACE would download and extract patches in TEMP, but not anymore, since version 8.1, unfortunately, there is no option yet?, to set a fixed path.

  • I am currently evaluating KACE SMA and was curious as to the location of the downloads. Thank you for sharing.
