I have a mobile laptop fleet using citrix.  Currently there are three different versions of the client installed.  I would like a script that searches for the installed version and upgrades from version 9.2 to version 10.0.

    Don't know of a script, but you can use AD to push out the latest release to all clients as a reinstall or upgrade.   Reinstalling doesn't hurt the existing client base, and you are sure you hit all the users.
    Page 22 has the options for an auto push msi with transform file to run reinstalls.  

    Good luck.

    I've tried using AD on my mobile deives before, but since they are not connected to the network at startup any GPO applied to the comuputer has no affect.

    You can always use the PSEXEC utility from systernals (now microsoft) to execute the install on the laptop.  Since not every laptop is on the network, how to you propose to script it.   I suppose you could run a script to attempt the install on every laptop by name every hour or so through out the day, but that will get annoying for the connected users unless you want to keep a log of installed units.  

    Why not just package thing and post on a server and send out an email requesting all users to "click here to upgrade" and include a simple log to record the laptop names that actually run it?    Just a thought.
