Software installation through GPO

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi all, I'm configuring my domain policy to automatically deploy software to network clients.

Everything's working fine but I have a question:

I must deploy a lot of programs (30-35) but not globally to all the clients so I'm looking for a method to select which program has to be installed on which clients.
I thought that item level targeting should be the solution (create a security group for each program), but there's no ILT in software installation...

There's no other way than creating multiple GPO for each programs?

Thank you all in advance
