I need to deploy the Office 2007 compatability pack to 170 PC's.  Ordinary users do not have write access to the c drive of the computers where the compatability pack needs to be installed.  How can i use group policy to push out this update to office?  I really do not want to visit every computer.  
Can i just creeate a startupscript in group policy??will that make it run as an admin and then create a file on the pc to flag whther or not the update has installed?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you want to delopy it with a GPO you are going to have to build your own MSI file (as microsoft do not supply one!). You can use WininstallLE (in the 2003 CD) to create this  see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/howto/winstall.mspx
you cna then deploy with a GPO in the usual way.

I have tried "publishing" applications before and the users are never able to install them...I assume because they only have read access on the majority of the folder, subfolders etc on the C drive.  I would love to be able to use the publish application if it would allow me to specify that i want to install the appllication as an admin user rather than the user logged in
Thanks

my preferred method of deployment would be to roll it out silently...even if the application is assigned it seems like i would still have issues with users not having write access to the program files folder
