To install the update

For more information about software update terminology, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

824684 Description of the standard terminology that is used to describe Microsoft software updatesThis security update supports the following setup switches.

Switch

Description

/help

Displays the command-line options.

Setup modes

/passive

Unattended Setup mode. No user interaction is required, but the installation status is displayed. If a restart is required at the end of Setup, a dialog box is presented to the user by using a timer warning. This warning says that the computer will restart in 30 seconds.

/quiet

Quiet mode. This is the same as unattended mode, but no status or error messages are displayed.

Restart options

/norestart

Does not restart the computer when the installation has completed.

/forcerestart

Restarts the computer after installation and forces other applications to close when the computer shuts down. Open files are not saved when the applications close.

/warnrestart[:x]

Presents a dialog box to the user together with a timer warning that the computer will restart in x seconds. (The default setting is 30 seconds.) Intended for use with the /quiet switch or the /passive switch.

/promptrestart

Displays a dialog box that prompts the local user to allow for a restart.

Special options

/overwriteoem

Overwrites OEM files without prompting.

/nobackup

Does not back up files that are needed for uninstallation.

/forceappsclose

Forces other programs to close when the computer shuts down.

/log:path

Allows for the redirection of installation log files.

/integrate:path

Integrates the update into the Windows source files. These files are located by using the path that is specified in the switch.

/extract[:path]

Extracts files, and the Setup program is not started.

/ER

Enables extended error reporting.

/verbose

Enables verbose logging. During installation, creates a %Windir%\CabBuild.log. This log details the files that are copied. By using this switch, the installation may run slower.

Note You can combine these switches into one command. For backward compatibility, the security update also supports many of the setup switches that the earlier version of the Setup program uses.
For more information about the supported installation switches, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance

This section describes how to manage the software and security updates that you have to deploy to the servers, to the desktop computers, and to the mobile computers in your organization. For more information, go to the following Microsoft TechNet Update Management Center webpage:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/updatemanagement/default.aspxFor more information about security in Microsoft products, go to the following Microsoft TechNet Security webpage:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/default.aspxSecurity updates are available from Microsoft Update, Windows Update, and Office Update. Security updates are also available at the Microsoft Download Center. You can find them most easily by doing a keyword search for "security update."

Finally, security updates can be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. For more information, go to the following Microsoft webpage:

http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspxThe Microsoft Update Catalog provides a catalog of content that is searchable and that is available through Windows Update and through Microsoft Update. This content includes security updates, drivers, and service packs. By using a security bulletin number such as "MS08-010" for your search, you can add all the applicable updates to your basket. You can also add different languages for an update to your basket, and you can download the content to any folder that you want. For more information about the Microsoft Update Catalog, go to the following Microsoft Update Catalog FAQ webpage:
