Software Installation using Group Policy

I am rolling out a third party application to the network using Group Policy, with the MSI provided by the company and everything is fine. But, I need to give modify access to a folder it creates on the local pc as part of the installation. (eg. c:\program files\company\progam folder).

And I need to copy 3 small files from a file server to all local PCs for making this software work.

How can I do that using group policy?

You could push out a startup script/batch file that performs the copy for you.
