I have numerous Windows 7 computers on my LAN. I have a very small custom plugin I need ran on each computer. This is a Microsoft Word plugin. If i install it manually, I just run it & then click next, next, next & finish....its that easy, I just would like to automate this somehow pushing it out across the LAN via GPO.

My question is, is there any free tool out there anywhere that I will be abel to create an answer file & have it to automatically install without user interaction on each PC when they log in?

Make an .MSI out of it and include it in a machine startup script, with silent switches.....

msiexec /i "\\server\share\yourpackage.msi" /qn
