What OS are you wanting to run Windows Update for, XP or Win 7? The process is very different. Here is a I did some time ago for XP, might give you a nudge in the right direction.

Might be of help. Takes a set of Windows patches in a subdir named by OS version, and applies them, optionally silently.

Currently only does Windows updates. Office updates could be pulled from a second folder I suppose, if needed.

; Small Network Systems Update Server.
;
; A simple Windows security-patch deployment script for small networks.
; Caters for multiple OS versions, each having its own source-folder.
; Installs patches silently when possible to avoid user-hassle.
;
; Usage: Compile with Autoit 3.1+ and place in any suitable location.
;
; Make one or more subfolders, whose names must match the (AutoIt)
; ID for the OS versions to be patched, e.g WIN_2000, WIN_XP
;
; Get patches using the administrator mode of Windows Update.
;
; Place the required patches in each folder.
; MS Office 2003 patches are now catered-for.
; Other non-Microsoft executables can also be included where suitable.
;
; Call from the logon script, or launch with a startup shortcut.
;
; Limitations: Must be run under an account with local-admin priveleges.
