Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Assuming all the clients are members of the domain, here are your answers:

1) You can initiate the batch file to run as a login script. The script goes on the domain controller in the \windows\sysvol\sysvol\{domain}\scripts folder. Then, in Active Directory Users and Computers, go to the properties of each user, and on the Profile tab, specify the script file you created (without the path…just the filename)…

2) To install an app on a member workstation, copy the entire install to a shared folder, modify the default Group Policy, under Computer Configuration-Software Settings-Software Installation, and Publish the .msi file including the full path to the .msi file (ie \\server\shared\NAV\navinstall.msi)

The first item is pretty straightforward…The second requires some advanced knowledge of Active Directory/Group Policies.
