    Back story:
    I am part of a large organization that has a large amount of computers on our domain controller. I have Administrative rights to the computers only, and network access rights on our network. I keep a number of computers up to date, including various 3rd-party programs (i.e. java, flash, etc), and I currently manually remotely connect to each computer and install the updates to the programs from a network share, then run Windows update, select all the critical updates (as well as all the applicable optional updates), then disconnect and move on to the next one. Needless to say, time quickly adds up.

    Goals:
    use WinRM to:
    determine which computers to issue the following using a text file:
    install EXEs remotely from a network share using the local (issuing user's) logged in credentials
    apply any important windows updates

    I cannot run a WSUS server on this network. I need to pull the updates from Microsoft (due to GPO, something I have no access over), I am unable to set them to automatically pull updates from Microsoft. I am trying to work around that with WinRM

    I would speak to your higher level tech support/network admin to get their input. Your IP address suggests that you are with an organisation, that has extremely strict rules on what can or can't be done to their computers and that includes windows updates or updates or installs of any program on the computer.
    in view of this, I am closing this topic
