Installing MS patches by Logon script

By Maity-boy ·
I am considering installing the latest RPC Patch using a logon script. We used to use the OS environment Variable to distinguish between operating systems when we only had 95 and NT but this is no use now that we have 2k and XP as they both have OS as Windows_NT. does anyone know of any other way to distinguish between the operating systems. I thought of All users path butits still the same between 2k and XP.If anyone has a sample script that would be even better

Have you considered using QChain.exe from Microsoft to enable you to install multiple hotfixes one after the other without a reboot, and then maybe manually put a prompt in at the end to tell the user to reboot immediately, OR automate the reboot. i.e. drop a file to the hard disk upon completion of the script so that it does not try and install a second time.
