I am trying to install Terminal Server client on a Windows 2000 Pro machine that does not have a floppy drive.

Have tried various things including coppying files to a network location and isnstalling from there, have tried installing from a mapped drive and USB key, but I get an error during the install.

In the client creator you only have the option of creating disks on the A: and B: drive, and I can't seem to map the usb key or CD drive as A: drive.

Am I missing somthing or is it impossible to install the client if you don't have a CD?

Is there a way I could roll out TS Client using group policy? This would be the most usefull solution.

Francois.

Usualy the client software is already created on the TS server in the following folder:

C:\WINNT\system32\clients\tsclient\win32\disks

you will have to copy it from that location to the target computer and install.

In order to deploy software using group policy it must be a windows installer package (*.msi).

You will have to download the new (and enhanced) client from Microsoft

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/rdclientdl.asp

extract the contens of the archive to a folder on the server and configure a policy to deploy the msrdpcli.msi on target computers.
