I am very rusty with VB script has been over 3 years since I wrote any.  I have just been assigned to a new acct and my first project will be to install a small client software to several servers.  I have a small window to do this so manual options are out.  I need the script to copy the software source then execute the silent setup.  I'm not sure yet if a reboot is required.  I may be able to pre stage the software souce so maybe 2 scripts would work.

Thanks

You could use PSExec to do this, see: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553

Another option would be to use Group policy to install, if the software are msi packages. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816102
