Apple Software Update / Windows

Has anyone found a way to trigger Apple Software Update on Windows? It doesn’t have a proper cli, but is there a way execute it to update silently?

BigFix already patches iTunes and QuickTime on Windows, but I’m also seeing older versions of the Bonjour Printing Wizard, Safari, and the iCloud plugin. If I could fire off ASU via a script, that’d go a long way to cleaning some of this up.

If anyone cares to file a radar with Apple for command line operation of Apple Software Update, please list 20774560 as a duplicate.

Also, @hansen_m might have some input on this.

I tend to uninstall Apple Software Update since it bugs users who often do not have Admin rights, and then handle the installation of those updates through BigFix.
