Hotfix Installer is a tool for installing patches to end user systems with only one Application object. Using a central configuration file it will install Hotfixes and any post installation program defined. Customized end user display and progress messages. Works with Windows 2000 and XP. Can install multiple IE version patches, Office service packs, Hotfixes and service packs. Created entirely with Wise Wisescript Editor. Source code is available at www.wildhair.org.
The program will launch, check to make sure the information file exists and then reads the information.
Based on the information found the program will then install the appropriate patch. It checks the system registry to determine if the patch is already installed and if not, then checks to make sure the target source file exists before executing the program. If the program does not exist it simply skips to the next hotfix listed.
This program requires the administrator to have good knowledge of the registry and how to install Microsoft Hotfixes and their individual command lines.
