Im running the below script from my KIX. It works fine. The problem is that it runs everytime a user logs in. I need an IF statement to check if the program already exists under:C:\Program Files\Avaya\lvp32

If yes, skip install. if no continue install.
Start \\server\netlogon\Avaya\setup_lvp32.exe /s

You can do the check either in the batch or in the kix file:
For the batch file:
 
if not exist "C:\Program Files\Avaya\lvp32\TheProgramName.exe" (
  start \\server\netlogon\Avaya\setup_lvp32.exe /s
)
 
Or to check in the kix file itself:
 
IF NOT EXIST ("C:\Program Files\Avaya\lvp32\TheProgramName.exe")
  RUN "something"
ENDIF
