Add/Remove Programs Network install tab

In NT 4.0, we were able to add a Network install Tab by modifying the registry to point to a specific location.

such as..

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
AppInstallPath = REG_SZ "\\DISTRIBUTION\SWDLOAD\IMAGE UPDATES\NT STANDARD\APPS\APPS.INF"


Under Win2K, this reg entry does not work.

Am I correct in thinking that Active Directory needs to be implemented on our network first to allow for the add/remove to properly pull down apps off of our server now?

Or is there a new way to define where the network location is for software to be installed?

Thanks,
Craig

I think that the network installation is implemented as a service off of one of your servers in win 2K there is a whitepaper on the subject although I am unsure of the title.

Yes, you have 2 choice for network apps, publish and assign.  Publish, add a shortcut in the start/program menu and install the application automaticaly.  Assign work like network tab.  You need ADS to do this..

Hope it will help
