I Need to copy a file/application from a network location. Its no a installer just a exe that i need to copy to the desktop of all users who are getting a software application. If i would copy the file during the install of the other software that would be great!!!

  • Or upload the .exe to the K1000 as a Software Title then use File Synchronization to push it to the clients (maybe using a smart label to target machine that get the software application you mentioned) and location you want.

You can either script this or use Group Policy, depending on your needs.

I would used the all user profile, C:\Users\Public\Desktop in Windows 7. If you dont want it there, but on the users desktop I would use a logon script and the %username% to get it there.

Play with using a script. For example you could have the verify step check that a certain directory exists (of said software application) and on success fire off a batch file such as:

copy "\\server\share\file.txt" "C:\users\public\desktop\file.txt" /Y

Or just build the install of the software into the script as well so it happens first, then the file copy...
