deploy CitrixOnlinePlugin v12.1 to clients in a domain

I need to deploy CitrixOnlinePlugin v12.1 to clients in a domain. I have deployed other software thru a gpo and thought about doing same with the Citrix software.  Found some "how-to's" by using the ICAClient.adm import into AD. Little different than what I would do as they show using the User Configuration policy. Would have thought it would be thru the Computer Configuration. So how to do this? Citrix does not recommend extracting the .msi files. The .msi files is necessary thru the  any of the other software policies?
Clients running Win XP Pro and Windows 7 32 and 64 bit Pro.

Forgot to mention the first script is a log in script.

the batch file is below:
start /wait MSIEXEC /i \\Myserver\myshare\CitrixPlugins\Install1.msi ALLUSERS=TRUE REBOOT=SUPPRESS /QB

start /wait MSIEXEC /i \\Myserver\myshare\CitrixPlugins\Install2.msi ALLUSERS=TRUE REBOOT=SUPPRESS /QB

If it is one msi use the first code as a vb script

if it is more (which i think they are about 4 msi from memory) use the second code as a batch file
(That can run via a login script) let me if you still need a hand with this

Set App = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
App.run "msiexec /i ""\\Myserver\myshare\CitrixPlugins\Install.msi""", 1, True

You can aslo download the exe plug in form Citrix website and install it with the below login script.
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strApp = "<PathToFile>\<InstallFile.exe> /q"
WSHShell.Exec(strApp)

I'm sorry for taking so long to respond. I have been "up in the air" about the best solution. I need some time to test. First I want to try using user software policy via the gpo. Have you deployed any of your solutions in a specific group in a domain?
Would you have any other knowledge that could be useful in this manner?
