hi guys,

I'm trying to deploy a batch file using group policies from a server on location A to another PC at location B (remote location).

They're both on the same domain.

Would you be able to give me the command line for installing this .msi file silently from A to B? I'm assuming I need to include the location of where the .msi file is and the target location. Any examples would be great?
