Deploy Batch Script to install Applications through GPO

Hello,

We have a batch file to install a specific application on our machines. We need to create a GPO to deploy this batch file but we need to just deploy this application to specific PCs or Specific users. How i can make a group and link this group to the group policy and apply to the PCs or the users whom added them to the Group.

Regards,

The easiest way would be create a security group with the users and computers in, then create a GPO, but specify the permissions in the GPO for that group instead of Authenticated Users.

Edit - here is a link with the steps.

Hi.

A second possibilty without filtering the GPos would be to use a membership check inside the batch. ifmember.exe can be used.
A 3rd poss. would be to wrap the batch into an msi package. WIWW by VinsVision is freeware and can do that. You could thend decide to filter on the MSI, not on the whole GPO.
