    As the (non-Windows 2003 Server) ms04-018 updates are packaged with
    IExpress, the knowledge base article above is not relevant. Here is
    one that is relevant:

    You need to look at the "Deployment Information" section in
    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/ms04-018.mspx
    more closely (quoted below). You are trying to use the command
    line switches for the Windows Server 2003 update.

    You need to use the switches described under "The other update
    packages for this security update support the following Setup
    switches:" here:

    Deployment Information

    To install this security update on Windows Server 2003 without any
    user intervention, use the following command at a command prompt:

    windowsserver2003-kb823353-x86-enu.exe /quiet /passive

    To install this security update on Windows Server 2003 without
    forcing the system to restart, use the following command at a
    command prompt:

    windowsserver2003-kb823353-x86-enu.exe /norestart

    The other update packages for this security update support the
    following Setup switches:

    /q Use Quiet mode or suppress messages when the
    files are being extracted.

    /q:u Use User-Quiet mode. User-Quiet mode presents
    some dialog boxes to the user.

    /q:a Use Administrator-Quiet mode. Administrator-Quiet
    mode does not present any dialog boxes to the user.

    /t: path: Specify the location of the temporary folder that
    Setup uses or the target folder for extracting the
    files (when you also use the /c switch).

    /c: Extract the files without installing them. If you
    do not specify the /t: path switch, you are prompted
    for a target folder.

    /c: path Specify the path and the name of the Setup .inf file
    or the .exe file.

    /r:n Never restart the computer after the installation
    process has completed.

    /r:i Prompt the user to restart the computer if a restart
    is required, except when you use this switch together
    with the /q:a switch.

    /r:a Always restart the computer after the installation
    process has completed.

    /r:s Restart the computer after the installation process
    has completed without prompting the user.

    /n:v Do not verify the version. Use this switch with
    caution to install the update on any version of
    Internet Explorer.

    For more information about these supported setup switches, see
    Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 197147.

    To install the security update without any user intervention, use
    the following command replacing "package_name" with the filename
    for the package being installed:

    package_name /q:a /r:n
