No.

Correct... an MSU file requires the use of the WUSA.exe command line
utility, and for that you'll need to either install it interactively or
script it.

You could wrap it inside a self-extracting exe with a CMD file that executes
wusa against the MSU file when extracted.


Ultimately part of the challenge here is that HOTFIXes are designed to only
be applied on machines directly exhibiting the issues described by the
hotfix. The presumption is those scenarios are identified machine at a time,
and thus implementation on a one-machine-at-a-time basis using WUSA is an
acceptable methodology. Hotfixes are not designed for enterprise wide
deployment "just because" the problem might appear at some point in the
future.
