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

    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.

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