I am the administrator of Win Server 2003 domain network for about 20 users.
How can I automate installation of some third party programs (Adobe Flash, Real player, iTunes...) on user computers through domain (GPOs)? I don't want to give them more than User privileges.
I know how to do it with Windows (.msi) programs.

Thanks.

I know how to do it with .msi packages. Already did it with some windows programs.
What I don' know is how to do it with .exe (or other extensions) software installations. Where can I find .msi installations for those programs. Is there a way to transform .exe packages to .msi?
