Hello Experts,

I am planning on deploying an app to 80 or so computers under one domain.  I've read somewhere that one can deploy using GPO.   Can someone provide me some links that will provide an detailed list as to how to proceed.  Also, any advice on the don'ts would certainly be appreciated.

As always, thank you for your time on this matter.

If you're currently using GPO to apply policies to lockdown machines etc. you shouldn't have any problem with this. The most important thing is having the software installer in an MSI file. If the software currently uses another install bundler you have more work, you will have to make an MSI file, this can get confusing and messy if not done correctly.
