Hi all, So with all the different security issues around Intel I thought this was really the time to focus on finding a solution to deploy drivers and possible firmwares in automated fashion. Goal was also if possible to be able to use this for customers without Automate. Like everyone I started googling to find information in december. By chance I stumbled on a post in january pointing me in the right direction. HP Softpaq Download manager has command line switches which you can see if you press CTRL + SHIFT + Y when the program is running. Then quickly tried to through a script together which was failing without giving an error. @DarrenWhite99 pointed me to one of his comments which was very helpful : Long story short when HP SDM is run from SYSTEM it will try to download to the TEMP environment variable which points to c:\users\blabla\appdata\local\temp which you guessed it doesn't exist when in the system context. Once you set the variables the tool works as expected instead of closing without downloading and without giving an error message. Now my other issue was that the categories and priorities are not always what you would like. Fortunatly that is easy to fix. When you edit HP SDM's configuration it will change the Defaults.sdm file (which is XML). This allows you to specify the guest OS and drivers you will be targetting with SDM. Testing was quite successful on computers in our office and on customer sites. https://github.com/limp15000/ConnectWise-Automate-HP-Driver-Update
