I have a very simple msi that should place a file in the AppData folder of a user. This works when the user runs the msi when logged on. But I want to push this msi through GPO to all workstations so when a user logs on the file is in his AppData folder.

Is this possible and ifso, what do I need to do?

Assign the MSI using 'User Configuration/Software Settings/New/Package...', with 'Security Filtering' set to a group which has a small selection of your users as members. Remember to remove 'Authenticated Users' before completing the exercise.

One you're happy that all is good, add 'Authenticated Users' back.

Alternatively, you MUST have a robust script for copying files from 'X' to 'Y' already so why not simply call it from the log-in script?

I've managed to work it out. I've set the file to be installed into CommonAppData. This way it comes in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\

Works as I intended :)
