Supported security update installation switches
SwitchDescription
/helpDisplays the command-line options
Setup modes
/passiveUnattended Setup mode. No user interaction is required, but installation status is displayed. If a restart is required at the end of Setup, a dialog box is presented to the user by using a timer warning, and this warning says that the computer will restart in 30 seconds.
/quietQuiet mode. This is the same as unattended mode, but no status or error messages are displayed.
Restart options
/norestartDoes not restart the computer when the installation has completed
/forcerestartRestarts the computer after installation and forces other applications to close when the computer shuts down. Open files are not saved when the applications close.
/warnrestart[:x]Presents a dialog box to the user together with a timer warning that the computer will restart in x seconds. (The default setting is 30 seconds.) Intended for use with the/quiet switch or the/passive switch.
/promptrestartDisplays a dialog box that prompts the local user to allow for a restart
Special options
/overwriteoemOverwrites OEM files without prompting
/nobackupDoes not back up files that are needed for uninstallation
/forceappscloseForces other programs to close when the computer shuts down
/log:pathAllows for the redirection of installation log files
/extract[:path]Extracts files, and the Setup program is not started
/EREnables extended error reporting
/verboseEnables verbose logging. During installation, creates a %Windir%\CabBuild.log. This log details the files that are copied. By using this switch, the installation may run slower.
Note You can combine these switches into one command. For backward compatibility, the security update also supports the setup switches that the earlier version of the Setup program uses.

Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance

This section describes how to manage the software and security updates that you have to deploy to the servers, to the desktop computers, and to the mobile computers in your organization. For more information, visit the following Microsoft TechNet Update Management Center Web page:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/updatemanagement/default.aspx ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/updatemanagement/default.aspx)
For more information about security in Microsoft products, visit the following Microsoft TechNet Security Web page:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/default.aspx ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/default.aspx)
Security updates are available from Microsoft Update, Windows Update, and Office Update. Security updates are also available at the Microsoft Download Center. You can find them most easily by doing a keyword search for "security update."

Finally, security updates can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. For more information, visit the following Microsoft Web page:
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx ( http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx)
The Microsoft Update Catalog provides a catalog of content that is searchable and that is available through Windows Update and through Microsoft Update. This content includes security updates, drivers, and service packs. By using a security bulletin number such as "MS08-010" for your search, you can add all the applicable updates to your basket. You can also add different languages for an update to your basket, and you can download the content to any folder that you want. For more information about the Microsoft Update Catalog, visit the following Microsoft Update Catalog FAQ Web page:
