install KB on remote computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have some fer Server 2008 and Windows 7 machines on which 2019-09 patches failed.

    I got a suggestion about missing prereq - KB from March that fixes the problem.

    Since I cannot access workstations during business hours, I would like to install a particular KB remotely (even it was approved on WSUS but not reaching the workstation).

    I found some solution that worked with previous powershell but stopped with newer versions.

    (https://4sysops.com/archives/install-windows-updates-remotely-with-the-powershell/)

    So, is there a way to install a particular KB on remote computer without hassle. Sure, I can copy it to remote pc.

    Thanks.

    If you can copy the .msi/.exe file to the machines, then just use Psexec to run a silent install.
