    start /wait <filename> <arguements>

    Googling "start executable from batch file" or similar might also help...

        If you have a server available, use WSUS
        In a domain this is a doddle, but even without a domain you can set it up (http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...meta=&aq=f&oq=)

            I was just about to say the same thing. Theres no point in fraffing around with excecutables that ideally have to be run silently. A GPO and WSUS can handle all of this at the click of a button or on automation.
