Note
You cannot deploy MSI 2.0 via Group Policy as a package because it is not an MSI itself. If you pull the compressed executable apart you can see there is an MSI in there, but it does not follow the rules of a normal MSI and cannot be pushed via Group Policy directly. Most networks do not offer users the necessary rights to perform the update, excluding the logon script as an option. If you have a deployment system in place this update should be as simple as using the below command line. However those of you relying upon Group Policy can get away with deploying it via a Startup or Shutdown script.

Place a batch file with the command line silent install, as well as the MSI 2.0 executable itself in a GPO object and set the Startup or Shutdown script to call the batch file. Unless you want to specify a specific UNC path accessible by local system (not an option for most) youÂ’ll have to use this method and include the MSI 2.0 executable in order to use a relative path in the batch file (none.)
