SCCM 2012: Install downloaded Software Update through PowerShell

With the last Patch cycle from Microsoft we had a bigger problem with the patch MS15-018, which failed on a lot of servers. The patch also prevented all other following patches to be installed. It was downloaded correctly, but could only be installed manually by running the downloaded exe-file from the SCCM cache folder.

To automate this a bit, my colleague Mihaly Kolozsi created a PowerShell script based on my design ideas. A big thank to him for borrowing me his brain and time ;-).

You can download it here.
