Installing Patch Without Source

First off, apologies if I am asking a question that has already been answered or posting in the wrong forum.

I'm trying to deploy a service pack for WordPerfect (wpsp2.msp) and it requires the source. I'm not interested in walking around to 100+ computer to install this stupid patch.

Is there any way I can set this thing up to look to a network share for the source? Also, I'm having trouble using the msiexec /qb! switch as the installer quits with no errors. Any help there would be nice as well, but not imperative.

Thank you!

It will look for the source in the place it was originally installed from. So if you installed from CD in the first place it will request that CD. But you can change this source location. You can find a tool for this purpose under "Handling MSI Source Pointers" at http://www.installsi...en/msi/tips.htm
