I would like to Depoly Windows Desktop Search to about 10 XP Pro Computers from my Windows 2003 Server R2 DC and I cant seem to put all the peices together. I've added the snap in so I can conrol WDS from the GPO but I cant figure out how to actually deploy and install the software. Microsoft does not supply an MSI file and I cannot figure out how to create one. The enterprise admin guide by MS does not seem to offer any insight. Has anyone done this before, is it do-able without going crazy, or should I just install it on each machine?
