Hello Vijay,

See here about assign and publish:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc783635(WS.10).aspx

Not with software installation GPO. Depending on the software you can install
it via startup script, but that you have to check with the software vendor.

Best regards

Hi Meinolf,

Just to add, I usually explain the differences to my students as that you
can assign (or better known as "force") a package on users or computers, but
you can only publish packages to users. THis is because with publishing, it
is not forced, rather that a user can pick and choose which app they want to
install from the "available software on the network" list in Add/Remove,
whereas a computer cannot "pick and choose."

Meinolf and Ace provided info regarding your first question - as far as the
second goes, you can use .zap file to accomplish this. For more info, refer

Hi
As explained, Publishing will publish the software through ADD Remove
programs. Assign can be configured in 3 different ways, assign to users
on-demand, assign to users, or assign to computers. The cool thing about
Assigning software to be available on demand is when you've too much
software Assign to multiple users, this option allows the user to install
the software with a single click or by opening a document that as an
extension assigned to that App, is almost the same as Publishing software
with the difference that in Publishing software the user needs to go to add
remove programs to choose and install what apps he/she needs.

Have a Nice day.
