I have a scrip that send out IE 7. If the user is logged in when the script runs it does update to IE7 but when the user clicks on the icon it just makes a duplicate icon and does not start the app.
I have the scrip setup as follows.

Also Run at Machine Boot Up
Also Run at User Login

Allow Run While Logged Off

if I do a "Run Now" or select "Start" from the script the script exectutes and I get the issue shown I described.
if I set a start time on the script it doesn't seem to start it at the time I have set.

What I would like to have it do is run the script. Copy it out to the client and not execitue it until the computer is rebooted or the next time a user loggs in.
Can this be done? Is there another way to get IE7 out there and not have this issue that I'm getting?

With scripting there are many ways to skin the cat... one way: .if you have a working batch file then you could use a script to copy your batch and supporting files down to the PC. Tell the script to check for IE7 and if absent then modify the RunOnce reg key to invoke your batch the next one time the user logs in.

I use a managed install for IE7 pretty often. That way you can easily define it to run while user is logged off among other things.

Since IE7 likes a good reboot you'd likely use something like: IE7-WindowsXP-x86-enu.exe /quiet /forcerestart
Setting it to run while user logged off. The duplicate icon issue is usually related to an unfinished install (meaning a reboot after install solves it by "finishing" the install properly).

So it looks like if I want to run and install that computer will need to be rebooted so the installation can be completed...

In this case, yes. IE is so embedded into the OS that it is best to reboot for this software.
