Want to push .exe install using Group Policy Editor
Posted on 2004-08-10
Hello. I have a .exe file that basically installs some custom fonts. I would like to be able to use Group Policy Editor to push this install out to end users on our network. I know Microsoft would rather me do this via a .MSI file, but we do not want to spend the money for packaging software such as InstallShield. What is the easiest way to do what I want to do via a .exe file? Would a .bat login file work? If so, how do I go about setting it up? Also, most domain users are in the local power users group on their WinXP Pro machines. Will local admin access be needed to install the pushed software? Thanks.
