No...you never want to repackage an app like a hotfix or patch with SMS
Installer.  Yes, SMS Installer is a versatile tool and can repackage
applications for deployment using SMS, but there are certain things you will
not want to package with it.

Look for the Microsoft SMS Installer book on Amazon.com for a good
reference, and look at myITforum.com for a web resource.

Subject: Patch Mgmt. - MS SMS Installer - Embedding Logon Credentials

  Does anyone have any experience with the MS SMS Installer utility? 
Supposedly you can compile security patches into an .MSI file with Admin
credentials and then deploy. How do you embed the logon credentials,
scripting?
