Service patching itself

I have a client-server application where the server pushes updates to the client. The client is not a person, it is another server and all installs performed on the client are silent. The client and server communicate via a service on each machine. I need a way to update the service on the client. In other words, the server sends the client the installer package (.msi file) and tells it to update itself. How can I get the service to kick off msiexec to overwrite itself? Is this possible? I sure hope so because I need to do it somehow.

I am not quite sure what you mean - but can you just run a upgrade that the server will push out to the client?
