What is the prefered/recommended method for updating the Puppet Agent on Windows?

Should I be able to use the Package resource to update the agent? Windows typically forces you to close a program before allowing it to be upgraded, which would make this method problematic.

OpenTable has created the puppetversion module specifically to handle this scenario - https://forge.puppetlabs.com/opentabl...

Right now, this is the preferred method of updating the agent. At some point later Puppet Labs may have a more preferred way but for now look at the module above as a nice way of handling this.
