you can use cscript .vbs file to deploy it on those machine,
if the machines are connected to AD then you can use GPO logon script to run it on those machine

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1371953/vbscript-how-to-set-the-connection-string

also you may need this to get computer name and use it in the script  

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
ServerStr = objNetwork.ComputerName

good luck

Thanks,

OK, these machines are not on AD, so I can use the example script on the link to execute remotely. I will try that out and update in the next couple of days.
