    Hi All

    I'm starting to look into this so even a point in the right direction would
    be great.

    In the past year or so we've doubled in size (over 100pcs now) I know its
    not big by alot of standards but installing a large package manually (which
    is what we have done till now) on all the machines does take some time and
    if its done during the working day it results in alot of down time (and if
    its done at the w'end it means a few less Saturdays for me!)

    A typical app we'd be dealing with comes in .msi format. Typical install
    I'd like would be zero interaction needed. If it means running a script
    manually thats fine, to walk around all the machines, double click a .bat
    file then go back around and shut down the machines is more that acceptable.

    So:

    A. Install app in default folder with default options (without prompting for
    answers)


    Sorry for the long message, any info that could help me would be great

    thanks
