- In order to use BatchPatch you must have the .NET Framework 4.0 installed on the computer you’re running it from. Target hosts do NOT need to have .NET installed.

- For most actions, you’ll need to use an account that has local administrator access on the target remote hosts.
- Microsoft’s Sysinternals PsExec must be saved to your Windows system path or in the directory that you launch BatchPatch from.
