Hi All

I would like to know a way to update a .ini file on all my client computers using GPO. The all clients are running xp and on the network.

The .ini file is in c:\program files\software name\filename.ini

I have a master ini file on the server and I would like this to be pushed out so all the clients ini files look the same as the master ini file on the server share.

Hope this makes sense and I hope you can help with it.

Many thanks

You could do this with a startup or logon script. Copy the .ini file to a network share and include a statement something like

copy "\\ServerName\Share\filename.ini"  "c:\Program Files\Software"
