Tips to update the patches

If we get any updates, say any patches from Microsoft then place it in Updates folder

Setup.exe has a logic to read and execute the newly found msp files from the Updates folder

If you save the .MSP file to the \Updates folder, there is no need to specify it on the command line.  You can also extract any updates (as .msp files, by running the patch's .exe with a /x switch) and those will be applied automatically.  There is some confusing documentation on MS's website about the whole process; it may help to name your customization .MSP file 1_MyCustomSetup.msp or something as there is some information at MS which suggests that all MSPs are evaluated in alphabetical order...
