I have an application that I would like to push to over 400 clients.  My problem is the install must be done, as an admin since the users do not have admin rights to the PC’s

There are two parts, the first module is straightforward except after the install the pc must be re booted.  After the reboot the first time a user logs in a modification is done in the control panel.” So the first time in must be done with a admin ID.

The second module relies that the first module has already been installed and working.

The install must A) Install Module 1 B) reboot  C) login as a admin D) begin to install second module E) reboot again.

Why not streamline the installation and skip the reboot process. Do the entire install administratively using a script to place the reg entries and the entries into control panel.
