Offline Patching Utility

Here at CoadCorp, we're putting the finishing touches on our free Offline Patching Utility for Microsoft Windows operating systems.  Essentially, it consists of two components - the Patch Downloader, and the Patch Installer.  They're designed to be run independently of each other. 

Patch Downloader

The Patch Downloader utility creates an offline repository in a specified folder of all available patches for a selected Microsoft Windows Operating System.  It can obtain the patches from an existing WSUS server (allowing for firewalled or offline wsus installations), or directly from the Windows Update website. 

Patch Installer

The Patch Installer utility makes use of the offline repository created by the Patch Downloader, in addition to the Windows Offline Scan file, to firstly display outstanding patches, and secondly to allow those missing patches to be installed.  It generates a text-file report of all patches outstanding, as well as a separate report of the status of all available patches for that system.

The Patch Installer utility can access the offline repository via removable media, or over the network from UNC path, or via a disk drive connected over Remote Desktop.

Availability

This software is still in the testing phase. Some limited documentation is available, along with the beta release in this zip file.
