Slipstream Functionality

The Product Update feature replaces the Slipstream functionality that was available in SQL Server 2008 PCU1. Therefore the command-line parameters, /PCUSource and /CUSource, associated with Slipstream functionality should no longer be used. The parameters will continue to work, but may be removed in a future release of SQL Server Setup. The /UpdateSource parameter combines the functionality of the Slipstream parameters, /PCUSource and /CUSource. For more information about Product Updates functionality in SQL Server 2012, see Product Updates in SQL Server 2012 Installation.

For more information about Slipstream functionality that was available in SQL Server 2008 PCU1, see Slipstream a SQL Server Update (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=219945).
