Desktop Central, in addition to Windows Patch Management, also supports installation of Service Packs (SP) for Windows Operating systems (XP, Vista, 2003, Windows 7, Windows 8 etc.) and Applications. The Service Pack installation can be effected on multiple systems simultaneously, thus saving time and effort. You can scan your network to identify the computers in which Service Packs are missing and deploy them appropriately.
Deploying Service Packs (SP) using Desktop Central is a four step process: Scan and identify the missing Service Packs, Download the required service packs, define, and deploy the configuration. As a first step, you can scan your network for the missing service packs, then the missing service packs are downloaded and stored locally, which can be installed on to the systems. A configuration once defined can be used any number of times to deploy service packs to any number of systems. The status of the service pack deployment is made available in the reports for later verification.
You can deploy Windows Service Packs using the free edition of Desktop Central, which includes Service Pack Deployment.
For more details on deploying service packs, refer to the Installing Windows Service Packs topic in online help.
