We are switching from Novell NetWare to Windows Active Directory and we need a replacement for ZENworks to push applications to the desktop.  I remember finding something before that would deliver applications to the desktop, but I can't find it now.

I'm not looking for GPP... that will push shortcuts to the desktop, but you have to already have drives premapped, etc.  With ZENworks, you can create an application and give it information on location, working directory, mappings, etc.  No drives are mapped until the user double clicks on the icon.  Is there a Microsoft equivalent for pushing applications to the desktop?

You have the ability to deploy software packages using Group Policy, not just shortcuts, but System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is more granular and fully-featured.

Those are the MS offerings, anyway. Any number of third-party offerings from the likes of Shavlik, GFI and NetIQ.
