Hi pappaslim,

this can be done, but as you already know you need to make a custom MSI package

this will show you how by using the inbuilt 2000 tool on the disc

this is more an overview for 2003 server

Cheers!

This looks like should work. I have never tried it though. It was reccomended on the UltraVNC site (http://ultravnc.sourceforge.net/install/unattended.html)

Fastpush is a script that can remotely install WinVNC on to a computer running NT, 2000 or XP. You need admin rights to do this, but it will work over any reasonable network connection.
