Hi all,

I've never had to handle an Administrative Installation before and I think we might be leaning that way for one of our products.

Currently we have an app that is installed locally on client machines. It places files, registers, creates shortcuts, runs CAs, etc. Now, can I take what I have and run an adminstrative install on a network location (/a)?

In other words, can someone briefly describe how an Administrative Install works? I know the files, etc get extracted to a desired folder on a network. How then do clients hit that folder? Does IT have to push a shortcut to their desktops?

When executed, is the file structure then copied to the local machine, registered, etc?

If someone can sum up how this would work, that would be more than cool. Or if there is an Administrative Install for Dummies somewhere, let me know that too. ;)

Thanks in advance.

For once, this isn't a sarcastic response/usage of LMGTFY: it really is easier to direct you to the first 2 Google hits this way.
