I am new to Active Directory and I have heard it is possible to install an app by running the executable via a batch file .
I need help completing the task .
I have written the batch file ,

I have  a Group to hold the workstations we want to deploy to -
I have  added the computers to be deployed to into the group
I need to Create a new Group Policy for this group of computers
Then Add a new Startup Script entry for this policy
- Then add  the install.bat file to the Machine\Scripts\Startup  folder at something like the following location:
C:\Windows\SYSVOL\sysvol\COMPANYNAME.COM\Policies\{3BDE6C73-C5D9-4AF2-85CF-A6015BBF4F1B}\Machine\Scripts\Startup

How can I do this ?
