I want to install powershell onto all of our windows XP clients on the domain. I don't want to have to manually install on all machine. What is the easiest way to silently deploy this across our domain?

Hi,

Are you talking about installing Powershell application itself or Powershell script such as Logon script?

Thanks.

I was talking about powershell itself. Its part of a larger project that we are looking at using powershell to set up our client machines from scratch.

If you are on a secured network, you could use psexec to remotely install it.

psexec \\computer1,computer2,computer3 -c -s WindowsXP-KB968930-x86-ENG.exe /quiet /passive /norestart

FOR /L %i in (1,1,99) DO psexec \\computer%i -c -s  WindowsXP-KB968930-x86-ENG.exe /quiet /passive /norestart

Sometime around 2003, Microsoft started using these standard options for all their installers: /quiet /passive /norestart
