I wanted to install "Mouse Without Borders" on an HP T520, the msi downloads, but I cannot get it to execute.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Tells me that I need an application to open it, not sure what to use.

You can't install software on thin clients. They are there to connect to Remote Desktops, and the OS on the client is ROM based and so not writable to.

Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it.  I thought a Thin client verses a Zero client would give me this ability.  Again appreciate the knowledge share.

Zero Clients are used to connect directly to VM's, like to ESXi VM's using special protocols like PCOIP.
