Hello All:

I need to deploy an exe file to some of the computers in our domain via
group policy. can someone please provide logon/startup batch file that would
accomplish the task? I need to install this exe silently/quitely on the
remote desktops.

Ciao.

If you could somehow pack that into an MSI file, you could use Group
Policy Software Installation.

Does that executable own any /silent switches you could use? I guess
you'll end up using a startup script that somehow goes like:

start \\server\share\software.exe /silent

I suggest a startup script because I think that the exe needs to run in
priviledged mode. It's likely that normal users can't install it due to
lack of write permission to the registry and system file locations.

Cheers,
Florian

ZAP it. :-)

To distribute non-msi files you need to define a text file with a .zap
extension.
