Use Group Policy to deploy the files. For a Windows 2008 AD:

1. Go to AD Group Policy Management> Right Click Domain and create a GPO in this domain, and Link it here....

2. New GPO> give it a name. Right Click GPO for 'Edit'

3. Under User Configurations\Preferences\Windows Settings\Files\ Right Click>New File

4. Action: Update , Source File(s): \\Fileserver\share\file , Destination File: C Drive or C:\Program Files\directory
