Is it OK applying .exe at startup/shutdown scripts ?

I need to apply patches and I have used logon vbs scripts to accomplish that

Somebody told me that applying the .exe's directly at startup also works.

I thought that startup scripts were designed to run .MSI or batch files, not
..exe's. .. well maybe I was wrong. Can somebody confirm if is technically OK
install patches at startup scripts, using patches.exe ? Win2KAD.

Startup script can run any executable. MSI's are required for group policy
installation. Maybe this is what they were thinking.
