Installing Software on Machines

I have 2 msi files that need to be loaded upon use.  The problem is the user's have no rights to install things.  As an administrator I can login and install this software.  This software is used for viewing XRays from a Citrix Connection.  Once I'm logged in as administrator and I run the software (I usually view and image and the software installs automatically) then all the  users are ok.  Is there any way I can allow this software to install either via GPO, registry setting, etc so that I don't have to continually install this.  We have over 1200 machines and all use this.

You need to create a test ou and test this because there is the RARE MSI file that doesn't work right, BUT, you can deploy the software via Active Directory - see

ok may work, just one question.. If I do this via GPO and software install, does this constantly try to install the software?

Not normally, but again, you need to test!

If the install succeeds, then of course not.
