User impact of silent driver updates with HP MIK Patch Acsistant

Hi,

I know this a basic question, but when the drivers update using the HP Patch Assistant of MIK, does it have a negative impact on users.

Historically, whenever drivers have been updated through other channels, it interrupts their service.  (EG  Audio stops working whilst it is updating).  Does HP MIK Patch Assistant have the same issue?  I'd love to use this more completely, but my main concern is impacting the user.

If it does, how do we update the drivers without impacting the user?

Thank you for your help.

It is possible that the user may see some minor side effects. It is not as much about HPIA or HP MIK, as it is about the individual update.

Thats unfortunate.  I'd have like to have installed the driver updates without impact.  (EG Audio cutting out during Teams, screen flickering with video update, network dropouts with LAN or WLAN.

I'll have to look at seeing if I can deploy them as a package during startup or shutdown.

Thanks anyway
