System Center 2012 Service Manager Service Pack 1
Update Rollup 3
not only includes general Service Manager system updates but some hotfixes for the Service Manager Console as well. Normally you would run the .exe to install the hotfix, but what if you needed to deploy this fix to multiple computers that are running the Service Manager Console using the MSP file and a software distribution tool like Configuration Manager? Fortunately that’s easy to do.
The update rollup package includes both a .MSP file and PatchWizard.exe:
The *Patchwizard.exe file is just a wrapper, so if you have a tool like Configuration Manager you can use the .MSP file directly for deployment and skip deploying the executable. And this applies to past and future rollups that are constructed in the same way as well. This is a fully supported scenario so if that better suites your needs then feel free to deploy the update using this method instead.
