I need to deploy some software that doesn't have an official install.  We basically need to xcopy several files and folders to the client (plus associated shortcuts, etc.).  Using the standard deploy methods or file sync isn't working.  Apparently, we can't ZIP the folder up since it contains several levels of subfolders and files.  Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

You could put the files in the clientdrop folder on the K1000, and then do a xcopy /S to copy the folder and all subfolders from the client folder.

Have you try Scripting on your software by adding Dependcies files?

Why don't you package this in an MSI format through any packaging tool like WISE package Studio or Installshield.

You can download the trial version of Installshield and use it at the moment.

Create and test a batch file to perform relevent functions then use Installshield as per piyshnasa's suggestion to repackage it into an MSI
