Update MyProgram.exe on all PC's on domain from windows 2000 server? where do i start looking at this?

hi , this is the first time im even remotely attempting something like this?
i have a domain with 30 computers.
I have a desktop client application written in vb.net.
I update the application every day.
Currently i have a shared folder where i save the new exe and
all the other pc's have to physically go to that location, close their program and then copy it into their folder.

what is the proper way of doing this?
can i somehow run an update from the server and update everybodys version of the program?

Pls help!

thanks!

Hoa about just putting xcopy \\server\share\myprog.exe "c:\program files\myprog\myprog.exe" /y in your login script.

If it is a big program it might be best to use xcopy with /d aswell which only copies if the file is newer
