You may want to use a script or even a batch file to copy file from say a network share to the needed location. You can even have it execute the instillation of the program in either.

is all of this in a policy if so and you are using Win 7 machines you may want to use GP preferences and in that you can copy files. What may be happening is that UAC is block you from adding anything to that folder but if you use GP preferences if should work.
