WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DEPLOY A VB APP ACROSS A NT NETWORK

In a NT networked environment, what tools are best for rapidly deploying a VB setup program created through the package and deploy method?  Thanks

We are going to try and use SMS.  

Any chance you can put code in to ensure you are running the latest version and if so then retrieve it rather than push it?  In other words, users will get the latest version only when they need it.

We wanted to use that approach but the security on the network won't allow suers to install software so a workgroup administrator must do it.  Since SMS can run as an administrator we re trying to set that up.

InvisibleMan, would you please stop using capital letters for your questions?

I'm not sure this is possible, I don't believe the wizard has network installation capability or a command line mode. I couldn't find information on this in MSDN. Input anyone?

(Is this your application and is there a possibility you could switch to a more advanced tool? Windows Installer has network install capability and won't cost extra bucks like InstallShield & Wise)

Package and Deployment does allow for SMS / Silent type installs.
Simply read throught the source code of Setup1.vbp and check the 'ProcessCommandLine' sub - this is where the command line is parsed and global flags are set to indicate the installation type.

HTH,
