Description. IExpress software update packages contain

For additional information about command-line switches that are used by Hotfix.exe and Update.exe, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
If the IExpress package uses a Setup Information (.inf) file as its Setup program, you can use IExpress command-line switches to control the installation options for the package. If the IExpress package uses an executable program (for example, an .exe file or a .com file) as its Setup program, use the switches for the Setup program to control the installation options instead of the IExpress switches.
Note You can use the /c:path switch to pass parameters (switches) to the Setup program or specify a different Setup program for the package. For example, the following command-line syntax can be used to run the Internet Explorer Setup package (The IExpress package Ie6setup.exe) and pass parameters to the Setup program (Ie6wzd.exe) that is contained in the package.
Ie6setup IExpress switches /c:" ie6wzd Internet Explorer Setup switches"
The following table lists the command-line switches that are supported by IExpress.

|/c||Extracts the files without installing them. If /t: path is not specified, you are prompted for a target folder.|

|/r:n||Never restarts the computer after installation.|
|/r:i||Prompts the user to restart the computer if a restart is required, except when used with /q:a.|
|/r:a||Always restarts the computer after installation.|
