    file via group policy?

    Thank you for posting here.

    From your post, I understand you want to install applications via GPO. You
    can download the installation package (it must be MSI package), add it to
    Domain GPO, assigning the package to computer, so every domain member will
    get the application installed when the computer starts up. No additional
    permission is needed to be grant on the limited user accounts. (when the
    application is assigned to computer, it will use system account to install
    application which has full control permission.)

    For more information, please refer to:

    Hope it helps. Have a nice day!

    Best Regards,
