    Hi hboogz,

    You could use Psexec or the taskscheduler to do this.

      I want to deploy it to 20 machines at once --- what would be the correct psexec syntax ?

        You also can deploy it by using a GPO?

        about psexec:
        so: PSEXEC @list.txt UPHClean.msi

          I've tried using the installation deployment from GPO and it installs on a few machines and on a few it doesn't. The GPO runs, but the software doesn't install.

          i really haven't had much success deploying any type of apps via GPO..

          there isn't a domain\user passwd option for psexec ?

          technically, could i run UPHClean using the system account ?

            Have you assigned it in the Software Installation of the Computer Configuration of the GPO? UPHClean would need to be a computer install (not a user install). Also, you need to put the msi file on a network share that has at least Everyone READ share permissions and the same for NTFS permissions.

              Sorry for not getting back to you Joe -

              But yes, i assigned the application to the computers and configured the assignment within the computer configuration part of the GPO.

              To rulle permissions out, i set everyone to full control on the share and ntfs and i get the same results.

              The GPO containing the software installation runs, but the software doesn't install on most of the machines.
