    SQL 2005 SP3 silent install?

    Rookie

      Is there a way to force SP3 for SQL 2005 clients to install silently?  I've tried searching the forums and if there's something on this, I missed it.

       

      I've tried software distribution of the KB955706 executable, also tried extracting the files and installing via running hotfix.exe.  I've also tried security and patch manager and it also isn't silent.....any suggestions?

       

      Thanks

          Below is a screenshot of the install switches with SQL 2005 sp3. The swithes that you need to use are the /quiet and /Allinstances. I verified that Security and patch does have these switches.

           

          If you try to install the Update manaully with the above switches does it work?
