I Have created a share named DEPLOY, and put an .msi file inside the DEPLOY share.
I would like to deploy this .msi through GPO, but I am not sure what kind of permissions I should give to domain users in order to have the .msi installed in their computer.

any help?

    Accepted Solution

    Share Permissions - FULL to Everyone
    NTFS Permissions - Read/Execute to exeryone...  You may have to give write if the installations writes any data back to the source location (like a log)...
